The Information Society requires citizens capable of transforming data into knowledge, emotion into thought and participation into group action, and this is why the school is based upon its own principals of methodology:
The main methodology pillars applied at Colegio Legamar are:
- To develop a project based on multiple intelligence principles in the implementation of the methodology of the centre
- The school understands that the teacher is the student’s learning companion
- The school encourages cooperative and contextualised learning
- The school incentivises the use of ITCs as essential methodology tools in current society.
- The school encourages its students to learn through projects, as it is understood that the students are proactive and play a leading role in their own learning.
We promote a stimulating learning environment, awakening the desire to learn, since learning is the resource that intelligence uses to adapt to changes along the path of life. Through the development and use of updated programmes and specific methodology, this issue of diversity is managed and the whole of the student body can be included. The proposal is to encourage collaborative work supported by communication and technological resources which are essential for the youth of today and the professionals of tomorrow.
We use 2 main resources in our methodology: collaborative work and the use of ITCs.
- Collaborative work: collaborative work is the didactic use of small groups where students work together to maximise their learning and that of the others. This concept is used at our centre from the Infants stage. Infants develop a project-based learning that continues in Primary and Secondary Education using various techniques and collaborative strategies with ICT resources.
- Information and Communication Technology: The use of technological resources with classrooms equipped with Interactive Whiteboards, tablets, all within an educational context, makes for learning environments that are constantly changing and thus teaching our students to be competent users of technology.
Cooperative Learning Project (2014-15-16)
- Cooperation means working together to achieve common goals. In a cooperative situation, individuals try to obtain results which are beneficial for themselves and for the other members of the group. Cooperative learning is the didactic use of small groups where students work together to maximise their learning and that of others.
- During the school year 2014-15, the whole teaching team received practical and theoretical training on this methodology and then put it into practice in the classroom through the digital support of the Educational and Moodle platforms.
