Unique Gear Profile
For a Tailored Learning Program to be created, the teacher must have a deep knowledge of each child of their class. This is supported by using a Unique Gear Profile.
A child’s Unique Gear Profile consists of 3 essential components: Academic, Emotional and Identity. Each Gear is as significant and crucial as the others. A balanced and successful child has three well developed Gears that complement one another. If the Gears are not in balance, a child is may exhibit learning difficulties.
For a child to be reach their full learning potential, they must be understood and viewed as unique. Each Gear provides an insight into a child. Historically, education focused on academic learning. However, we now have a greater understanding of the ever changing society we live in and we must adapt learning and teaching accordingly.
