Why is it necessary to develop thinking?

FoodAdvice works by combining the following principles

You cannot limit yourself to just consuming information, because knowledge will not become skills until that knowledge is actively applied in a practical context. FoodAdvice courses consist of a large number of interesting practical tasks that ensure the development of the acquired knowledge in practice.

Developing thinking skills is not a solitary process. Working collaboratively as part of a team to construct new learning and apply it is a much more effective approach, that reflects the real-world context. FoodAdvice courses are based on team interaction, which ensures active involvement in the educational process, increasing the efficiency with which new information is assimilated and skill formed.

Learning through games moves away from a traditional, didactic, transmission model of teaching to model built on quality dialogue between teacher and students in order to construct new skills and knowledge. In the format of a multiplayer game, in which classes are held at the FoodAdvice courses, the teacher acts as one of the participants who take an active part in the game, which in turn allows creating a community of students interested in the result and increasing the efficiency of the educational process.

“Children and teachers will make play a permanent part of education. This will improve the health and well-being of children and increase the chances of success in life. “Pasi Sahlberg, school reformer

 

Modern life cannot be complete without technology, and in this regard, the school does not stand still, being forced to master it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, it was found that replicating traditional teaching methods online was ineffective. The main reason for the drop in efficiency lies in the complete lack of communication between students. FoodAdvice helps schools go through digital transformation and restore lost communication between students and teachers in the current environment.

“The tools available now are fantastic potential for improving education in almost all directions: the whole world can be transferred to the classroom, the main thing is to be able to use these technologies”Ken Robinson, British theorist, specialist in the field of human capital development
