Learning Difficulties and Disabilities
Parents and teachers of children with learning difficulties and disabilities are using Online Education’s online visual learning solution and their subtitled educational video library, because it provides a unique and compelling introduction to online learning for the child with learning difficulties. Online Education’s visual learning resources teach a vast range of curriculum subjects and enable the stimulation of the learning process by allowing children with learning difficulties to explore and demonstrate what topics interest them – an essential factor in stimulating their desire to learn.
This creates a favourable starting point in their learning experience – which can then be developed.
Many parents, teachers and care-givers have discovered that a significant number of students with learning difficulties and disabilities respond better to starting the learning process if they are provided with the material that interests them, rather than demanding they learn what we think they should know. Then, having stimulated the child’s desire to know more, and the learning process, they have the opportunity to feed and develop it.
Online learning service focuses on visual learning and the use of subtitled video as a teaching medium because all children have preferred learning styles. Visual learning caters most effectively for the widest range of learning styles – and by delivering the information to each student in the preferred format they are able to process it most effectively, which ensures that the learning process is, and continues to be, enjoyable, beneficial and interesting – an issue that is important for all children and not just those with learning disabilities.
There is far more to Online Education than the use of visual learning…
There are three advanced features that makes Online Education’s visual learning program, the online learning solution of choice for the parents and teachers of those children and students with learning difficulties and disabilities. As parents and teachers:
- They appreciate that visual learning and the use of subtitled video caters for most learning styles and provides each child with the choice to watch, listen to, or read each video presentation, allowing them to process information in their preferred style – and the most effective manner.
- They understand that research has established the link between the use of subtitles (or captions) on video and the potential to improve reading and literacy skills and this provides the opportunity for their children to study a topic AND improve their reading and literacy skills AT THE SAME TIME.
