This program offers an overview of the characteristics of effective learning throughout childhood. Viewers learn how newborns are natural learners as they develop and learn with all their senses. Experts also discuss how older children begin to plan their approaches to problem-solving and are increasingly able to monitor their efforts, to alter their plans when needed, to discard ideas that didn’t work, and to review how well things went.
