"A foundation for developing cognitive and non-cognitive skills"

「認知能力と非認知能力を伸ばす土台」

"发展认知和非认知能力的基础"

blog : 12-Nov-2021

The International Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) uses the term social-emotional to describe non-cognitive skills, which are difficult to quantify, such as

●The ability to carry things through

●The ability to concentrate

●Self-discipline

●Planning

●Leadership

●Ingenuity.

Etc.

On the contrary, cognitive abilities are easily expressed numerically in a test, such as the following abilities.

●Reading

●Writing

●Calculation

●IQ

●Academic ability

●Memory

●Logic

Etc.

How do we develop these skills? We are confident from our daily teaching that the child needs to acquire a foundation before developing these two skills. If this foundation skill is missing, for example, the child will not do well in maths and will find it difficult to understand what people are saying. This is the cognitive function, the intellectual function of memory, language comprehension, attention, perception and judgment.
