THE MONTESSORI

Method of Teaching Applied

The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the child physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively. This course will go through the main steps your need to be aware of in order to apply the method in your own school environment. 

Description

COURSE METHODOLOGY

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use:

 

Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Raise awareness on the importance on the Montessori Method discussing all its characteristics;

  • Explore and discover the benefits that the Montessori Method can foster;

  • Help participants aknowledge all the different ways in which the Montessori Method can be implemented in everyday learning;

  • Furnish easy and accessible tools to apply the Montessori Method to revolutionize your current teaching strategy;

  • Create a cross-cultural exchange and understanding with local colleagues on the benefits that Montessori Method can give and the ways in which can be best applied.

Gracias AMFI for organizing such a programme, I believe that the Montessori method is really important and I want to apply it in my teaching. You helped me do that.
