Learning For School Students
Children between the ages of five and twelve are very creative and imaginative. It is the best time period for development of creativity, thinking ability and imagination. Children learn major life skills during school days. It is proven that they learn faster than adults because they have greater learning capacity. Students learn easily from fun activities like while they play in playground, they learn how to make winning strategy. They learn how to manage teams and they learn how to manage time and handle failure, etc. School Cinema also used this concept that learning can be entertaining. School Cinema teaches essential life skills to students in a very creative manner.
Learning for College Students
College students are neither too mature nor immature. At that time parents think that the child is capable enough to handle any situation. College students see many changes in their life. They are given many responsibilities by parents, teachers and others. They have to handle academic pressure and have to study seriously because after college they will start their career. At that time students face difficulty in maintaining good relationship with parents. They do not know what is right or wrong for them because life gives them many chances. They can pick any chance and get good or bad results accordingly. School Cinema understands the challenges of college students and brings an effective solution for them.
Learning for Parents & Teachers
The responsibility of teachers and parents is very high. They provide right direction to children. Sometimes they face difficulty in maintaining good relationship with children because of thinking differences. Every person cannot understand the things as you are thinking. Parents and teachers have to understand the psychology of children to give them good teaching. Sometimes they also need effective guidance to improve their teaching efforts.
