Active Methodologies

Personalisation is one of the values we are known for. It puts the student at the center of the teaching-learning process. We understand that for this reason, the Society of Mary educates based on a "Relationship that guides, integrates and fosters growth".

The teaching-learning process takes place in our classrooms in a very different way, by ensuring that the student is always at the centre of the princess. 

This teaching-learning style allows students to deploy real-life skills and learn while facing problems and challenges.

Our programs develop different abilities, skills and intelligences in our students. We seek to promote critical thinking, creativity, develop a holistic view of reality, stimulate self-regulation of learning, acquire the habit of teamwork, the ability to learn to learn and the ability to cope with problems and decision making.

 

 

Cooperative Learning

Cooperative Learning as a working methodology allows strengthened relationships, leadership, communication, social skills and personalization of learning. We work together to achieve shared goals.

The characteristics of cooperative learning are:

  • - Positive interdependence.
  • - Individual responsibility.
  • - Development of interpersonal and small group skills.

We have been immersed in the Cooperative Learning Project for several years, with the aim that students learn more and better (cooperate to learn) and that students learn to work in a team (learn to cooperate).

 

The benefits for students in the application of this project can be seen in:

  • Learning to organize as a team with other students.
  • Learning how to plan their work.
  • Learning how to regularly review their team's performance and setting improvement goals.
  • Learning to respect and value the opinions of their classmates.
  • Promoting values ​​like solidarity and mutual respect.
  • Improving students' achievement.

 

IntegraTICs

The integration of information technology allows us a methodological change and helps us to make the student an agent of their learning by developing a critical sense and the ability to discern.

ICT is a daily reality in the teaching-learning processes of our students, as a support tool and meaning a development of specific skills in information and digital technology. This is the key goal of the integrative project that strives to achieve the following:

Making ICT another tool that allows our students to be competent in their daily lives, so they can systematize, order and approach the current reality of society.

Providing all teachers with tools to train and help students acquire this skill. The use of ICT in the classroom (which should not be exclusive) can facilitate daily teaching practice, improve student learning and lead us to a new methodological model.

Balance the use of ICT, between different teachers, courses, subjects and areas.

The end goal, once thel computer is integrated into the students' learning experience focuses on the use of tablets and mobile phones as a new pedagogical resource.
