EDUvelopment

Ages 15 – 16: More of Me

In this age bracket we will develop learners in the following areas:

This is the middle year of high school and learners are possibly beginning to dream of who they will become one day.

Included in this module, is a fun and somewhat unconventional assessment called a Mind Dynamix Profile, which will show learners how, through their behaviour, they can become much, much more than they ever thought possible. The knowledge of one’s Mind Dynamix Profile will also expose learners to new styles of studying, where the learner is the captain of their study success.

Everything in life is interconnected through systems and one’s behaviour impacts on others. With the recent pandemic, we have observed that the ability to be flexible and adapt is critical to coping as an emerging adult.

Communicating accurately is vital as we move to an era where mobile devices become our main form of communication. A bad message can impact on how others perceive you. On the upside technology means that every text, every presentation and every picture that one sends has the ability to demonstrate one’s flair and talent in written and oral communication.

You have probably already experienced that personal strength comes from one’s agility, and this module teaches Agile Project Management, which learners can one day hopefully gain a qualification in on this program.

Again we feel that learning cannot only be about oneself and so we have also included modules on business, being an entrepreneur and first aid. We take the concept of interconnectedness and systems thinking into your environment where one will learn about biodiversity, and ecology in South Africa.
