Hands on learning
A Different Approach
The Montessori method of education is a child-centered approach that encourages children to pursue learning based on what interests them most. With various learning stations available children are encouraged to seek out what they hope to learn through hands-on activities. Children are able to become independent by being given freedom of choice, repetition, and movement.
Modern day leaders such as Prince William and the founders of Google advocate for the Montessori method. The benefits of the Montessori method have been shown to include strong leadership skills, increased creativity, and cooperation. As teachers facilitate daily activities the students are able to cooperate together freely to accomplish tasks together. Children work on tasks for the joy it brings which naturally leads to increased creativity in discovering different processes for accomplishing the same goal.
