Neo-Montessori System The art of learning

Thank you very much for your attention.:

Introduction Today, I am going to talk about what I think it would be the best education system in order to make more prepared and educated people for our society: the Neo-Montessori System. You will see how this system works and, by the end of the presentation, you will understand why this is the best choice for the future generations.

Thank you very much for your attention.:

The creator of the system: María Montessori María Montessori was born in Ancona, Italy on 1870 in a high class military family. She studied Engineering , Biology , philosophy, anthropology and, finally, she became in 1896 the first female doctor in Italy and studied psychological diseases. Then, at the beginning of the 20th century, she started to work with children with iportant learning disabilties. She observed that, despite their illness, they had great capacities for learning and great creativity potential.

The basis of the method The method Montessori is created and it focuses on the academic environment: First of all, they put the teacher and the students at the same level, authority doesn’t comes from the teacher and this one becomes a helping figure who tries to make students improve. The main goal in this system is not to have robots which memorize everything but people who learn and can apply knowledge to their lives.

Independent students. Teamwork A significant pillar of the system is to work on student’s independence from the teacher: as I said before, the teacher becomes a helping figure and it must be the students who will have to make the effort in order to learn. There are no homework, the students are the ones who know how much they need to reinforce that subject at home. Some subjects which will be taught, besides the traditional ones, are affective-sexual education, environmental concern or politics. There are also no more individual desks and they are replaced by collective big ones. This is used to teach the students effective teamwork.

Lazarus students Here, the way to pass a subject is not the classic exam because we believe it is not fair to judge someone’s knowledge by a piece of paper. Instead of that, they use what they call ‘Lazarus classes’ which consists of students giving a class by themselves. If the other students understand it, they pass. They can also make progress in a subject while they do not in others, everything is going to depend on students’ understanding.

Thank you very much for your attention.:

Budget The government should invest significantly in education since this is the system which will educate the people of tomorrow, the generations who will build the future. Besides, the educational system should be totally free of charge, from Nursery school to University. Education should not be a privilege for upper classes, everybody has the right to study.
