Young learners begin school with excitement and, often, anxiety.

What if they knew that they already have the tools to learn anything—even things that don’t seem to come naturally to them at first. The secret to unlocking this unlimited potential is understanding how the brain works so it can be used to their advantage. The How People Learn Online Course is a flexible instructional framework that empowers them to begin their journey towards becoming an independent learner.

Guided step by step through interactive lessons full of exciting tools and activities, your child will:

  • Step outside their comfort zone to learn new things.

  • Enjoy learning and know precisely what they want to learn.

  • Find it easy to learn new content and build resilience.

  • Easily overcome obstacles and challenges in the way of their learning.

  • Build autonomy around their learning and become more independent.

Has your child ever had the opportunity and resources to discover their potential and gain learning skills?

Maybe that’s why you landed right here today!

Through neuroscience stories and exciting challenges, your child discovers how their brain learns and how to use it best so they become a smarter, better and happier learner.

The How People Learn Online Programme is a flexible instructional framework that empowers your child to begin their journey towards becoming an independent learner. Designed with busy parents in mind, the Online Programme integrates learning how to learn, developing a growth mindset and mastering emotional learning strategies into their everyday learning.

Each lesson includes videos, downloadable materials, new information about the brain, exciting challenges to put into practice what they've learned, and a special section to review their newly acquired knowledge.


What happens when kids learn about their brain?

  • Increase their self-esteem.

  • They become more resilient.

  • They are not afraid to fail.

  • They take on new challenges.

  • They learn autonomously.

  • Their love for learning improves considerably.

We have prepared a lot of cool, exciting and useful materials

The resources in the TRY THIS sections can be downloaded and printed out so that children always have them available for practice.

You are a teacher or a school leader and you want your students to learn to grow their brains with the How People Learn curriculum.

Sometimes it can feel like children have no motivation to learn. They may resist doing schoolwork or seem apathetic about academic learning. Often, this is the result of a fixed mindset. They believe they were just born smart, average or dumb and there is nothing they can do to change it. You can create a different learning culture at your school with the How People Learn School Kit. We have created some special kits with both classroom and school requirements in mind. Send us an email at info@howpeoplelearnbook.com and we'll happily tell you more about our 25+ Classroom Kit and 100+ School Kit.

Parents, teachers and children around the world agree: How People Learn is the best thing you can do for your child to help them prepare for the future. Check out what they have to say below.

How People Learn becomes a gateway - bridging new insights with practical application, all in a fun, engaging way

Alis Anagnostakis - Coach, Australia

Children will discover activities that challenge them to go outside the program and actually build the concepts they are reading about. Learning challenges will allow them to take the lessons from the book back into their homes and classrooms and notice how their life changes as they experience learning differently. Thus How People Learn becomes a gateway - bridging new insights with practical application, all in a fun, engaging way.

Excellent guide to help children use their brains more effectively. Very clever and thought-provoking.

Dr. Martin Fitzgerald - Lecturer in education, Irlanda

Well done on an excellent guide to help children use their brains more effectively and also giving parents and teachers a way of working and supporting children’s learning. I loved the layout and the visuals. I thought the series of exercises and challenges were very age-appropriate and accessible. The way it ends with the brain-challenges is great and gives children and real programme to follow and challenging questions at every stage. Well done on a very clever and thought-provoking piece of work!

How People Learn takes us on an adventure to uncover the secrets of learning

David Willows - Director of Admissions, Belgium

How People Learn takes us on an adventure to uncover the secrets of learning. In a manner that is accessible to both children and adults alike, it invites us to explore the magnificent human brain and how to ensure it works effectively…What I like most of all is the accessibility to complex information - a simplicity that is very powerful.

How People Learn teaches, engages, and interacts with its audiences- encouraging them to embark on a journey through their own brains that will constantly fascinate and intrigue.

Mai, teacher and blogger, 16.5k followers

How People Learn is divided into 15 science stories, including topics such as: “Why Your Brain Does not Pay Attention to Boring Things,” “Why Does Your Brain Like Exploring and Breaking Stuff?”, and so much more! What little wouldn’t be immediately curious to dive into this read? Plus, each exploration of the topic ends with an interactive component. It gives me an insight into not only my learning development but also a glimpse into how my littles are learning in class. Imagine the impact this knowledge could have on children and their views of their learning and cognitive processes. How People Learn teaches, engages, and interacts with its audiences- encouraging them to embark on a journey through their own brains that will constantly fascinate and intrigue. *Mai* third graders sit enraptured- intrigued by this sneak peek into a topic that directly relates to them and can influence their own knowledge of their capabilities in school.

A Message from the Author…

Hello! Thank you for stopping by and considering the How People Learn Online Programme for your child. I am a brain-based learning designer and also a mum. I’ve talked with thousands of children, parents and educators around the world, and I spent years researching the best practices in learning and teaching. At How People Learn, we are extremely passionate about inspiring and empowering the future generation of thinkers, entrepreneurs, doctors and craftspeople of all kinds. Our aim is to help them become smarter learners by teaching them about their potential and challenging them to practice everything they learn in order to have an impact beyond the classroom. Nothing makes us happier than encouraging young people to pursue their dreams, and we’re excited to introduce your child to How People Learn to do just that!
