Cognitive Learning Model
Senior Lift utilizes a Cognitive Learning Model that enhances adult learning. We value their life-long experiences and we incorporate it within our training methodology. Our accelerated learning journey focuses on the entire person including their physical activities, life experiences and their personal creativity. Senior Lift’s goals are focused on getting the participants deeply involved and interested in their own learning. Adults need to feel comfortable in their learning environment to ask questions and share knowledge with trainers and classroom peers. Adults decide for themselves what their learning priorities are and how this knowledge is going to produce immediate and useful solutions to the problems they need to solve. Adults compare and contrast new knowledge against past learning. Adults are most effective when they are taught in their personal learning style. The art of association is used to help students recall, relate and remember old information associated with new information. These learning styles include a combination of visual, auditory and kinesthetic approaches. Our challenge for facilitating distant learning is to be able to successfully adopt these learning methods to be reflected within our new digital learning platform.
