Effects on culture[ edit ] Education and proliferation of knowledge[ edit ] TED curator Chris Anderson asserted in that video contributors may be about to launch "the biggest learning cycle in human history". Chu described "a whole global laboratory online" in which "kids in Japan are taking moves from a YouTube video created in Detroit, building on it within days and releasing a new video, while teenagers in California are taking the Japanese video and remixing it with a Philly flair to create a whole new dance style in itself.
Share via Email A method of schooling that focuses on personal development rather than exams produces more mature, creative and socially adept children, scientists have found. Psychologists in the US found that across a range of abilities, children at Montessori schools out-performed those given a traditional education.
Five-year-old Montessori pupils were better prepared for reading and maths, and year-olds wrote "significantly more creative" essays using more sophisticated sentence structures. Some of the biggest differences were seen in social skills and behaviour. Montessori children displayed a greater sense of "justice and fairness", interacted in an "emotionally positive" way, and were less likely to engage in "rough play" during break times.
The schooling system was invented in the early s by Maria Montessori to educate poor children in her native Italy. There are more than 5, Montessori schools in the US, and around in the UK, where they are privately funded.
The method discourages traditional competitive measurements of achievement, such as grades and tests, and instead focuses on the individual progress and development of each child. Children of different ages share the same classes, and are encouraged to collaborate and help each other.
Special educational materials are used to keep children interested, and there is an emphasis on "practical life skills". The researchers, who reported their findings in the journal Science, compared children aged three to 12 at a Montessori school in Milwaukee with those at other schools in the same area.
Parents won places for their children at the unnamed Montessori school by entering a "lottery" run by the local education department. Children were tested for mental performance, academic abilities, and social and behavioural skills. Angeline Lillard, from the University of Virginia, who co-led the study, said: Typically the home environment overwhelms all other influences in that area.
This is the ability to adapt to changing and complex problems, and is seen as an indicator of future school and life success.
Although the Montessori children were not regularly tested or graded, they did just as well in spelling, punctuation and grammar exams as those given conventional lessons. Older Montessori pupils were more likely to choose "positive assertive responses" when dealing with unpleasant social situations, said the researchers.
They also displayed a "greater sense of community" at school. She also hopes to repeat the study at other Montessori and traditional schools, and assess specific Montessori techniques. The Montessori method has had its share of criticism.
Some parents believe the classroom environment is "too free", while others question Montessori teaching priorities, or the fact that children are not normally assigned homework. In Britain, the government is funding a joint project with the Montessori Schools Association to develop the teaching practice in a state primary school for the first time.
