Learning differences between boys and girls

Did you know that both boys and girls brain's work in completely different ways when it comes to learning?  Research has suggested that the majority of boys work better if they are learning visually, or perhaps if physical movement is involved. On the other hand, girls talk about what they are trying to learn and work with other people in order to grasp important concepts. As you are probably aware, the classroom is generally set up for females to thrive, hence why males tend to be the most disruptive. In this article I want to take a little look at the differences between the two genders, and perhaps more importantly, how we can help them to learn in the best way possible.


Let's start with males. When you are dealing with them in the 'home' environment it is suggested that they only work for set periods of time, in fact, it is important that a male takes frequent breaks from learning so they don't become too overwhelmed. During the 'studying' stages you may also want to incorporate physical games into the learning process. For example, many parents toss a ball to their son as they are learning things, it may seem a little bit unconventional, but trust me, it is something that really does work. Males also tend to require a little bit more when it comes to organization, so don't forget to attempt to help your child organize their day, ever single day! Again, this is something that is really going to help.


When at school, teachers find that males tend to showcase their abilities in a visual way, so rather than written reports, perhaps it should be changed to a slide show presentation, or maybe an audio presentation. Many students really do thrive when they exhibit their skills this way, even the ones which don't seem to be paying too much attention for the rest of the year!


On the other hand, if you are trying to work with females then you may want to supply them with some toys that involve manipulation, or even building. Whenever she gets stuck on her homework then I really do suggest that you talk the problem through! Quite often, females thrive when they are given the ability to talk through a situation, after all, this is how their minds tend to work. Many parents also like to point towards math and science at work in the real world. Just ask your daughter to work something out for you in real time, it really does work! They don't need to take as many breaks as males, but they should be having regular breaks still, perhaps a fifteen minute break every hour. Other research has suggested that females like to learn in a creative manner, so if you can incorporate 'diagrams' and the like into the learning patterns, then again, you may see some benefit.


This is just a short guide on the different learning approaches taken by males and females. Remember, it is only general information and both groups can have a bit of overlap, and in fact, there are plenty of males who like to work in the female style and visa versa. Your job as a parent is to identify how your child learns at the earliest possible opportunity.
