Work in the United Arab Emirates

One of the projects consisted of dividing the children into small groups for different lessons. This technique allowed them to provide classes and play games with more accuracy and effectiveness because children have fewer distractions when they are in smaller numbers and are more open to listening when educators talk directly to them.

With these tasks the volunteers feel that they can help develop children’s imagination, giving them activities that make them think and use their fantasy. Another aspect of this project is to create different stages of learning, which can be part of a bigger curriculum in which children can choose what lessons to take every day, according to what is most important and interesting to them.

One of the methods taught by these organizations is perception shift. When we grow up, we learn a lot from what surrounds us; this is a sort of informal education. As children, we use our senses to develop ourselves in the world. We copy what older people do, we take them as models. People can learn in academic institutions, such as schools, and universities. They can take independent courses on different topics and subjects also; even if that does not guarantee a degree or a diploma, it does not matter, because one can learn new things, be it theoretical or practical.

One can certainly also learn in their everyday life; since the moment we are born we receive stimuli that shape our intellect and the ability to interpret and give meaning to our experiences. Also, people define their moral behavior through the process of learning, as well as how to deal with emotions and feelings. Through adequate care, educators give students a frame to develop in their environment.
