Quantum Learning is a body of knowledge that incorporates various methods and principles designed to facilitate a shift in learning. The program has shown to generate significant gains over traditional approaches to teaching and learning. Results are both observable and measurable, using a variety of research designs that have been rigorously validated. Quantum Learning processes enable students to learn more in less time, with greater ease and engagement, resulting in higher achievement and far greater sustained learning.
Quantum Learning is based on the most current brain research and recognizes the well established fact that we use only small parts of our brain’s full potential in conventional learning arrangements in which (typically) teachers talk and students listen. Study after study has shown that, while this approach is conventional, it is the least effective teaching mode for most people‚ young or adult. In helping people of all ages learn their best, nothing is more important than understanding the vast differences among individuals in how that learning takes place; the dramatic differences among us in “learning styles.” Too often, classroom teaching employs only one teaching method or approach, invariably settling for effectiveness for a few but failing to optimize learning for all.
Quantum Learning embodies five tenets. These tenets permeate all aspects of Quantum Learning and are the basis for everything that happens in the classroom:
- Everything Speaks
- Everything is On Purpose
- Experience Before Labeling
- Acknowledge Every Effort
- If It’s Worth Learning, It’s Worth Celebrating
Additionally, Quantum Learning recognizes multiple intelligences or learning styles. Students and teachers identify how they learn best and incorporate different learning-style activities into lessons, projects, and assignments.
Voyager’s rigorous staff development program shows teachers how to design the learning environment and to develop lessons and learning activities that harmonize and harness these differences as an asset by building team learning within a community of learners.
