First graders must learn discipline. Timetables, study material, homework, grades and class tests – all these restrict freedom. But maintaining curiosity, the desire to discover, spontaneity and creativity is at least as important. And today more than ever. Because to be ‘fit’ for a society that is characterized by rapid change and complex structures, you need flexibility and the ability to learn new things over and over again.
Therefore, there is little point in just ‘teaching’ children something. It is much more important to maintain their ‘natural learning instinct’ and to support it in order to help them learn actively and independently. Parents can also do this, for example, by creating a good workplace for their child. Because in a learning society, the workplace is increasingly becoming a living space.
The more time you spend with sedentary work, the more important the workplace. What is becoming increasingly common in offices, school children also need at home: an ergonomically designed workplace to create the basis for healthy learning.
The choice of a good workplace is an important consideration. In addition to the determining factors such as the size of the apartment or the children’s room, the availability of storage space and the space at a window, the individual, optimal learning environment must also be taken into account.
