Teaching For Understanding
The teaching for understanding model, created from the research of the Postgraduate School of Harvard University, promotes a powerful idea; understanding as a basic principle of education.
In that order of ideas, this model of learning goes beyond your children retaining information and developing skills. Instead, the understanding of concepts is focused and applied in real contexts.
The Reggio Emilia philosophy, developed by the Italian pedagogue Loris Malaguzzi for preschool and primary education, it can be understood by the following principle: children are capable of thinking and acting for themselves.
The Reggio Emilia pedagogical model develops the extraordinary potential that exists in each one of them, through five concepts that drive the child as the protagonist of his own process:
Children should have some control over their learning process. They create their own experience in the world by touching, moving, listening and observing.
Children must have endless forms and opportunities to express themselves. Thus we empower the expression and exchange of ideas and feelings.
Tastes and interests
Children must build their own learning. With the research projects they explore, discover, and learn from their own curiosity.
Children must learn to relate to other children. This develops emotional skills to make decisions and manage interactions.
Los niños deben tener apoyo y respaldo durante todo el proceso. Es la unión entre la orientación del docente y la participación activa de la familia.
The STEM approach, whose new boom has been consolidated since the beginning of the 21st century, has a clear objective; develop your children’s skills and knowledge in the areas that are shaping their future.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM according to the acronym in English) are the fields that are part of the emphasis of the model, whose application follows the same principles in all pre-school stages.
