How Kurt Penberg does brought a revolution in kid’s world?
Boring books and traditional teaching method have made the studies dull and boring. People do not find any interests in studies any more. They study due to compulsion only but the interests. This lack of interests in studies and compulsion to learn drives students crazy. They starting to grow irritated and somehow harm themselves and their development. Especially when we talk about kids, they never do things when told. They are kings of their own world and do not like to be pushed into something. If someone tries to tell them what to do and what to not, they get irritated soon. Same things happen to studies also. We have often seen that the kids who have been forced to study without any interest, finds it difficult to cope up the pressure and gets indifferent to studies and ready to take any kind of punishments but to study. By reading child psychology one can clearly say that one cannot make a kid do things which they do not like, if you pressurize them, the results can be very unfavorable for future.
Kurt Penberg has seen the dilemma in parents of how to teach their kids. He sensed the urge to find a new way of teaching and learning. Kurt Penberg developed a completely new system of education for kids. He combined technology with the studies. He replaced the boring books and classroom lectures with soft music and colorful pictures. By selling the personalized CDs and DVDs and story books and video games, he rocked kids’ world.
How this system works?
Have you seen your kids sing a song? Have you seen your kids telling stories to other kids? Have you seen them dancing whenever music plays? I am sure you must have been. Who taught them to sing or dance or tell stories? Certainly no one taught them to do such things. They develop these skills by themselves only just by listening to the songs and by watching shows on TVs. It proves that Kids learn better with the music, videos and stories. They grab them easily and it fits in their mind forever. Kurt Penberg incorporated music and colorful pictures in studies. He invented personalized music CDs and DVDs. The CDs do not have any kind of playback song or something but it contains soft music which plays with A B C D…. and 1 2 3 4 and poems in a rhyme. Kids love music. They take the alphabets and count as music and learn them without any effort.
What has been the impact of using such systems in teaching?
Personalized music CDs and DVDs have changed the education system in United States. The kids now learn by fun and their parents have become relaxed as they knew that just need to buy their kids these CDs and DVDs of Kurt Penberg and that’s all. They do not need to force their kids to study or scold them or shout at them. Penberg did a great job which can be seen in every house of US.
Learning is certainly a very interesting thing. After all life is all about learning and enjoying but strict practices which had been adopted in education system had made learning a boring stuff and that is why kids want to run away from it. But thanks to Kurt Penberg who developed a whole new system of teaching and have made learning a better experience. For more information visit : kurt penberg blog
