One way of developing a skill is to make it a stored routine in the child’s system.
To make this happen, the first step is to bring the skill to a conscious level where the student is deliberately thinking about the activity or learning by repetition.
As a skill is practised or rehearsed over time, the activity becomes easier while naturally forcing the skill to a subconscious level where it becomes permanently stored for recall and habitual use at any time.
Practising skills over time causes neural pathways in brain to work better in unison. To improve performance, students need to practice frequently and receive lots of positive feedback so they can practice correctly and enhance the right things.
Besides, if you exercise your brain correctly, you enhance connective tissue between the neurons in your brain to help them function better and faster.
Challenging your brain to learn new things forces your brain to work harder, increasing memory capacity.
On top of that, a growth mindset works to instil confidence in a student regarding their ability to develop and learn.
When students have a growth mindset, they take on challenges and learn from them, therefore increasing their abilities and achievements.
