There are 3 mains points to self regulated learning.

  2. Strategies for Play; and
  3. Independent motivational control.

By understanding these self regulated points better, we can navigate play better.


Episode 3: Tantrums: Flipping Their Lid

Bad moods affect how our brains learn, especially for babies. Learn what areas of your brain are screaming when you flip your lid and understand what’s going on for your child when they feel overwhelmed.

This episode will help you maximise on the calm learning moments so that new knowledge can stick to long-term memory.

Episode 4: Multiple Intelligence’s

Multiple intelligence’s are described as different modalities in which we learn. We can use this knowledge to make learning easier and more efficient.
