Pedagogical hybridization and holistic approach
“Let's not raise our children for today's world. This world will have changed when they grow up. So we must as a priority help the child to cultivate his faculties of creation and adaptation ”Maria montessori
- A holistic approach is an approach that considers that a whole is more than the sum of the parts. In education, the child is considered as a whole (holism), which is why our educational project takes into account the cognitive (thought), the affective (the emotions), the relational (socialization), the conative (l 'action) and especially the knowledge of one's own knowledge (metacognition). We not only focus on content (common foundation of national education of knowledge, skills and culture) but also on know-how (methods) and interpersonal skills (attitudes).
- We hybridize (combine) compatible and coherent tools, techniques, methods and pedagogies to put them at the service of our school project and especially of our first beneficiaries, the students. Like the bees whose honey is the result of hybridization of several carefully chosen nectars, we have selected the elements which seem to us the most suitable to constitute a new pedagogical approach. By “suitable”, we mean: compatible with each other and consistent with our vision of education and our global conception of the human being.
- We hybridize 4 value-added approaches - Feuerstein, Montessori, Gattegno and Freinet - which constitutes a major educational innovation - which we integrate within the traditional framework of French National Education. It's about combining the best of each approach for the benefit of the students.
- We also integrate good international teaching practices: co-teaching, multi-age by cycle, research laboratory, personalization, etc.
