Krachtvoerlezing 'Powerful Voices for Montessori Education'


Graag willen we u uitnodigen voor de Krachtvoerlezing 'Powerful Voices for Montessori Education' gehouden door dr. Laura Flores Shaw en dr. Steven Hughes op donderdag 12 april 2018.

Dr. Laura Flores Shaw: “Montessori for All Brain Types”

Designing optimal learning environments for all children requires an understanding of the interconnected growth of body, mind, and brain, and no educational approach offers a neurodevelopmental experience comparable to Montessori. Dr. Shaw brings a new, compelling, and accessible framework that helps everyone understand the unique power of Montessori pedagogy for children – with all types of brains.

Dr. Steven Hughes: “Surviving School Testing: Documenting Montessori’s Unique Outcomes"

The “Global Education Reform Movement” has tried to improve school outcomes by simply focusing on academic testing. It ignores the importance of school experiences that promote non-academic outcomes, such as social and emotional growth, life skills, self- knowledge, problem-solving, and even character. Learn how non-traditional measures documents Montessori’s unique outcomes, and bring Montessori to more children.
