Which age group is this course for?
This course is for the age group of 7 years to 12 years.
Why is this course important?
Our world has went through a massive evolutionary change in a span of a few years. A 100 years ago, the average life expectancy of men was just 47 years, only 8% homes had telephones and more than 95% of all births took place at home. The computer had been invented 70 years back in 1943, the internet 30 years back in 1983, social media had been invented 15 years back in 1998 and Youtube has been founded less than 10 years back in 2006.
Yet most of the profitable careers like Blogging, Youtubing, App Making, Social Networking, e-commerce involve all of these.
At the same time, careers and organizations that seemed to hold high amount of potential in the future, failed to soar. Nokia has been taken over by Microsoft, Yahoo has been taken over by Verizon, Kodak has been shut and hundreds of startups fail every single day in this country.
If anything at all, this suggests the sheer unpredictability of what the future holds in store for us. The future is uncanny, uncertain, but at the same time, very exciting. All in all it, promises to be a roller coaster ride. And we want to make sure your child is ready for something like that.
Which is where the current education system fails. For most part of their lives, it trains our young ones for career prospects that have been obliterated from the current everyday scenario. Our young ones don’t need to be trained for conventional analytical jobs like engineering or medical sciences. As a matter of fact, our young ones don’t need to be trained for anything at all. They need to be ‘prepared’ to deal with the uncertainty life is going to throw their way. And Reverse Engineering helps get to the bottom of that.
Who should be doing this?
Every child from the age of 7 can start pursuing this course. This focuses on holistic development of the child covering all the intelligence quotients so he/she may have strong learning foundation when he/she goes out in the world ahead.
What is this course all about?
Reverse Engineering is exactly what it sounds. Thoroughly analyzing something, and layer by layer, going back to how it was created in the first place. The same analogy could applied to Child Psychology as well. A child above the age of 6 or 7, is sufficiently a product of his/her initial upbringing. His/her mind is an amalgamation of different characteristic traits that shape his behavior in his/her everyday life. Out of these characteristics, some may be specifically strong while some subsequently weak.
These could be classified into the following:
- Intelligence Quotient (IQ): Intelligence Quotient is truly what it’s conventionally predefined definition stands for, a measure of an individual’s cognitive learning ability. A child with higher IQ possesses considerably high ability to reason and think.
The little one could subsequently turn out to be academically proficient. He/she could successfully apply logical reasoning to everything around him/her. They are generally more linguistically developed and fail to make grammatical errors.
Although a common misconception is to associate higher IQ with intelligence. A higher IQ is not the indicator of higher intelligence nor is the vice versa true. A higher IQ simply indicates the learning capability of a child and would suggest higher responsiveness to cognitive thinking.
- Creative Quotient (CQ): As the name suggests, little ones with higher CQ are creatively brilliant. They tend to show greater understanding of music and art and other creative fields around them.
These little ones tend to show high out-of-the box thinking capabilities. They look for alternate solutions for mundane day-to-day problems. Characteristically, this kids love doing something better and new and look creativity and art in and around them at all times. Painting, dancing, writing, etc would be a few key strengths of children with higher CQ.
- Emotional Quotient (EQ): An EQ relies on a child’s ability to manage and understand the emotions of themselves and the others around them. Little ones with higher EQ are well connected with the people around their own self. They’re emotionally balanced and can handle emotionally turbulent situations with ease.
These little ones tend to have good leadership skills because of the emotionally equanimous state. They can manage challenging situations with no sign of hyperactivity or discomfort. They’re good at expressing themselves and in general possess good communication skills because their empathetic understanding of the people around them.
- Adversity Quotient (AQ): AQ factor is a child’s ability to handle tough situations with ease and panache. These little ones have high threshold for pain, both physically as well as emotionally.
They are tough minded and tend to keep a never give up attitude at all times.
Higher AQ people do not run away from tough situations and have the guts to face adversities head on. They also have high energy levels that keep them charged and ready to deal with situations at all times.
What are our methods?
Similar to Multiple Intelligence factors, a child would have a few very strong above mentioned factors and would lag severely in the others. For instance, a child with higher IQ but very low CQ might be academically brilliant and show great potential, but when an actual problematic situation would arise in the future, the child would be incapable of thinking out-of-the box.
Hence, a child never remains fully developed until and unless all his Intelligence quotients are covered well. This is where Reverse Engineering comes into picture. With our intricately designed curriculum will we thoroughly analyze the mind of a child and work on holistic development of him/her as a complete individual.
This is what we do. This is who we are. We are Learn N Grow and we’ll make sure your child reaches his/her full potential, no matter what the circumstances may be.
