Love Vs Hate Learning- Ankit Khare

Whenever I enter my classroom, I see the passion and the spark in my children's eyes toward learning it's not only for a particular subject but it's about their love for learning.

 If you want your children, to love learning, create a positive and encouraging environment that stimulates their natural excitement and inquisitiveness. Here are several strategies:

1. Make Learning Fun: Incorporate games, interactive activities etc. This helps to bring lessons to life via your creativity and imagination.

2. Follow Their Interests: Customize learning sessions to reflect children's interests and passions.

3. Provide Positive Feedback: Celebrate their progress and accomplishments, no matter how minor. Positive reinforcement promotes confidence and a love of learning.

4. Create a Supportive Environment: Each child learns at his or her own pace and in their own style. Show patience, understanding, and support for their unique talents, problems, and learning styles.

6. Foster a growth mindset: Cultivate a growth mindset by highlighting the value of effort, tenacity, and resilience during learning.

Hate learning:

"Hate learning" relates to a dislike or dissatisfaction with acquiring knowledge, skills, or information. It may show up in various ways, including boredom, discomfort, a lack of interest, and aversion to learning activities. Hate learning is frequently generated by situations like:

1. Unfavorable Learning Experiences: Previous negative experiences in school or education, such as failure, criticism, or feeling misunderstood, may contribute to a dislike for learning.

2. Lack of Relevance: When learning experiences are not perceived as relevant or significant to one's interests, goals, or everyday life, it can lead to disengagement and apathy.

3. Overemphasis on Grades or Performance: Pressure to achieve academically or meet specified criteria can induce worry and tension, resulting in a negative attitude.

To make my computer classes more interactive for children, I try to incorporate engaging activities and tools that cater to children's interests and learning styles. 

I use educational software and apps, specifically designed for children, that offer interactive lessons, games, and activities to make learning fun and engaging.

I also allow children to apply their learning in the form of creative digital art, programming simple games, making attractive PPTs, etc

Introduce coding activities tailored to children's age and skill level using platforms like Scratch JR.

 By implementing these interactive strategies, I create a dynamic and engaging computer class that sparks children's curiosity, fosters their creativity, and cultivates a passion for technology and learning.
