“Learning is more than the acquisition of the ability to think; it is the acquisition of many specialized abilities for thinking about a variety of things.” – Lev S. Vygotsky
This unique term “Constructivist” describes the model of education that believes education is not just about teaching but rather about learning. It assumes that every learner has their own set of questions that they are curiously, passionately trying to find the answers to. The role of the teacher, or guide, is to create the right environment for that learner to construct their answers and explore with enthusiasm. Constructivism is the most revered and sought-after approach but few institutions are able to achieve it. Montessori is the world-largest pedagogy that actually achieves constructivist ideals. Montessori is a hands-on, innovative, individual approach that creates a love of learning and life-long learners. Learn more about constructivist education in the video below.
