Pedagogy curriculum

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”

Isaac Asimov

The pedagogy curriculum is divided into 3 parts:

  1. great pedagogues,
  2. neuropedagogy,
  3. experimental research.

We look at the theory behind the 52 practical steps proposed in the first curriculum on these 3 different angles.

Great pedagogues

What can we learn from the great teachers of the past centuries ?
What are the main findings and claims of Comenius, Rousseau, Montessori, Decroly, Freinet, Gattegno and Mitra ?

Comenius

Neuropedagogy

How does the brain learn, according to neuroscience ? Since we can observe living brains in action, many ideology fights about teaching have been solved. The efficiency or counterproductivity of many education practices has now been proven. Some theory about how the brain is structured and learns starts to emerge.

Experimental research

What did the experimental research in schools discovered during the last 50 years ? Thousands of studies have been conducted all over the world on education, to correlate some actions and academic achievement. What are the most efficient actions? For example, we reduce the size from 25 students to 15 students of a third of the classes (randomly selected), we add one hour of sport on the second third and bring no change to the last third. What has the most significant impact on the academic results of the students?
