At Study Toolbox we are passionate about the process of learning. We believe that learning should be fun and that, given the right study tools, any learning material can be mastered. It is our mission to help learners to discover and develop their strengths and to find ways in which they can learn faster and remember more.
Learning is not only about trying to fill the 'memory banks'! Learning only becomes meaningful when the learner understands how the pieces of a concept fit together. Meaningful learning is an active process during which the learner relates what he or she already knows to newly acquired knowledge. Ultimately meaningful learning should be transferable to real-life contexts. It is this constructive aspect of learning that truly makes learning an engaging, lifelong journey of discovery.
Our Study Skills Workbooks were developed for learners aged 9 and older. The junior workbook works well for younger learners, aged between 9 and 11 years old, and the senior workbook is aimed at junior high school and high school learners.
Study Toolbox also provides training to professional people who support learners within the educational context. This include psychology professionals, registered teachers, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and Social Workers. Our workshop is accredited for professional development purposes with the Health Professions Council of South Africa and with the South African Council of Educators. We have trained over 200 accredited service providers in South Africa. Our service providers can be contacted to assist learners in acquiring study skills and work habits that will help them to improve their academic achievement.
"We believe that viewing people through a growth perspective is the most important thing we can do to help them grow. We need to see others in terms of their strengths, inner striving and the pull of a better future." Anon.
