We are working with children and experts to evolve education, and meet the needs of the future.
Alithia Learning is a not-for-profit organisation that will provide a space for re-imagining and re-examining learning. Our foundation begins with contemporary scientific understandings of child development, neuroscience and communication techniques. With an understanding of the how the brain is wired we can begin to support a learning experience that equips children with the tools, skills and abilities to continue to learn, adapt and contribute to a rapidly changing world.
Alithia aims to launch a Learning Facility in January 2019, set on acreage, that can be seen as a long-term Lab, or a blank canvas. We remove the time-restrictions and the parameters put in place by 20th Century perspective on education; we are offering a space to families and the global community where we can evaluate, research and showcase what a progressive (21st Century) educational approach looks like. To cultivate the skills that will be needed for the future, we need to start from a child-centered perspective in which thier ideas and curiosities are valued.
Alithia Learning will work closely with funding bodies, researchers and the parents to document the issues, approaches, learning journey, and overall development. We will work collaboratively with experts and academics to publish information, research results and articles that will increase awareness and understanding of alternative models of education in Australia and the world.
We believe in Prevention
Alithia Learning was formed in response to research on anxiety and behaviours that underlie many social issues. Major factors lie in the way we interact and the way we currently approach education.
It is time to put the knowledge from decades of studies into action and use that as the building blocks for something new.
We will work with children aged 5-12, as these are the years when an individual's perception of themselves in an academic and social setting is formed. Their internal voice is developing, creating the scaffolding for future learning, motivation and passion.
With our support, families can be supported in their efforts to raise children who communicate and collaborate with others on a respectful and compassionate level. This is a long term goal with the opportunity of creating real change in the way parents/families and the educational system in Australia approach learning and socialisation of children.
What we're doing, why it's important, and where your money will go.
