Habits of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is based on the Habits of Mind and the Multiple Intelligences frameworks that have been applied through thousands of schools around the world. Habits of Mind focuses on the 16 types of important problem-solving life skills used by successful people, while Multiple Intelligences seeks to uncover a child’s innate abilities in order for them to learn better.

These two frameworks, when combined, will allow educators to teach students to think critically and learn creatively. Global Eduhub’s experience and research in early childhood education adds to this combination to offer their expertise in bringing this pedagogy to the preschool level.

The final pedagogy for preschoolers is thus named Habits of S.U.C.C.E.S.S, and will be rolled out in a pilot programme across Global Eduhub’s Mulberry Learning Centres across the nation. All teachers and centres will be certified by the Institute of Habits of Mind and all Mulberry preschoolers will go through MIDAS, a profiling tool to help parents understand their children’s multiple intelligences.

The symposium will feature the creator of the Habits of Mind framework, Professor Arthur Costa, Emeritus Professor, Education for State and Founder of The Institute for Habits of Mind, USA; Dr Branton Shearer, neuropsychologist and founder of Multiple Intelligences Research and Consulting, USA; and Dr Henry Toi, Executive Director of The Art Costa Centre for Thinking and Affiliate Director of Habits of Mind, Singapore and also the creator of Habits of S.U.C.C.E.S.S.
