Parents involved in their children’s lives know that as a result of certain school reforms, education in today’s world has changed. There was a time when left-handed students were deformed to become right-handed and girls and boys were not allowed to attend the same classes. Just as these same changes have occurred over the years, our era is now more open to modernity.
Although it is not new in the world of education, the Montessori pedagogy is becoming more and more popular. In view of the numerous Montessori schools that have opened, this method is still not authorized and recommended by the Ministry of Education. The analogy to better explain this pedagogy is the following. The principle of the normal school system compares the child to a vase that must be filled with a pre-established program to be respected as well as homework. The Montessori method compares the child to a vase of knowledge that needs to blossom by the sheer force of its curiosity and love of knowledge. This pedagogy ensures the intellectual, physical and spiritual development of the child. Childminders specialized in this pedagogy even offer their services as private individuals.
A DIGITALIZED EDUCATION
Thanks to the technical revolutions that innovate our daily life, modernity can no longer do without the digital world and education is no exception to this dynamic. The 2.0 school, which has often encountered hazards, is no longer a myth. It is a reality in the United States, even if in France we are slowly starting to implement it. This delay can be explained by recalcitrant institutions that advocate the good old methods and reproach a lack of human contact to this approach. Interactions with teachers will also take place via screens, and will eventually help those who cannot access the course due to reduced mobility. The main benefit of digitizing education is that it will personalize the education of each child, optimizing their abilities.
DANISH METHOD FOR A HAPPY CHILD
Positivist education, benevolence, happiness, words that speak to the Scandinavian country since these are values that they teach from an early age. A way of life that bears fruit since Denmark is at the top of the list of countries with the GNH (Gross National Happiness). A method that has appealed to other parents who are tired of the race for performance promoted by the current school system. Learning by playing and choosing when and how to play or finish playing: a simple principle to encourage the child’s autonomy. The goal is to leave a positive vision of things, an optimism that the child can keep until adulthood. In addition to other principles such as community, empathy, authenticity, etc.
