Education through Workshops

Education through workshops is an educational method considering learning as a personal and aware re-elaboration of knowledge and skills that, once acquired, can be autonomously used by the pupils in new and stimulating contexts.

 

The Workshops

They are an occasion to discover the complex reality, an important moment of interpersonal relations, of collaboration, a working itinerary promoting the development of body and mind, that is a rational and emotional development, becoming a setting of action and research.
They are learning opportunities which efficiently integrate knowledge and skills, cognitive and social-emotional aspects, the ability to plan and to work. Occasions to experiment one's knowledge, enhancing personal attitudes.
