Philosophy of PRO FUTURO Schools
The most important skill that should be shaped by a modern school in a rapidly changing world is the ability to learn quickly, through which we understand flexibility and ease of adaptation to new conditions, adaptation. The new generations will have to feel all their lives, because once acquired knowledge at school is not enough for a lifetime. In order for a student to be able to learn quickly, he / she should know his / her individual learning profile and be able to use it effectively.
Today, thanks to the latest discoveries about brain activity, we know that every person learns in a different way. Colin Rose, an English researcher in the process of effective learning, one of the world's most recognized psychologists, the author of the book Accelerated Learning, initiated the current trend of modern education using knowledge about ways of learning the brain, in particular:
the theory of the hemisphere of the brain, which in 1981 brought Roger Sperry the Nobel Prize in the field of psychology; each hemisphere is responsible for other activities and "learns" in a different way;
the concept of the intelligence of the multiple Harvard scholar Howard Gardner; we have 8 intelligence, not just one;
research on the dominant styles of learning: visual, auditory or kinesthetic (motor); we have 3 channels of information reception and for each of them information to be remembered must be given in a different way;
research on the mechanisms of remembering and the role of polisensoricity in learning; information is provided through many channels, with the use of many senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch) and emotions to ensure a multi-sensory way of learning, as it happens from birth.
