Quizzing in its modern day avatar is an activity that combines both general knowledge and targeted guessing using logic. The rush of putting together seemingly unrelated clues to arrive at an answer is one that is hard to match.
QShala in collaboration with Harsha Manjunath and Tony Brian conducted a research to study the impact of quizzing on a child’s curiosity. The study showed that
Quizzing conducted regularly as a learning exercise positively impacts the child’s curiosity because of the effective mechanisms that it employs: asking questions, giving clues, employing visual aid, gamification and other media play a factor in stimulating children’s curiosity
1.Quizzing will greatly increase your curiosity levels
Young children ask close to 100 questions a day. Most children, as they grow older, the number drops to about 20 per day. The irony is that while our education prepares our children to answer questions, the curiosity to question the answers is dwindling. Quizzing is a great tool to keep the spark of curiosity alive. Curious to know how? Read these! Quizzing always keeps you on the lookout for new resources.
2. Quizzing makes you observant
Why is 21ST June celebrated as International Yoga Day? What is so peculiar and intriguing about the controversial Mona Lisa painting? Quizzing is all about making connections. With our in-house critical thinking mantra QMAGIC, one can easily join the dots and put and two together. The seminar will use questions and stories to illustrate this. Watch one of our very own QShala kid turned Quizmaster Sambarta Sanyal from Kolkata show you how it’s done
3. Quizzing keeps you abreast of current affairs
Quizzing puts the current happenings of the world and presents them in an engaging and intriguing manner. A quizzer and quizmaster should always keep an eye out for the on-goings in popular culture, sport, business, science and technology. The Quiz Pro Seminar works on building the habits that would build this skill.
4. Quizzing gives you exposure to great reading material
Quizzing is all about using the right resources. Where you gain your information is just as important as how you take it in.
