Cooperative learning, Co-teaching and Flipped Classroom
The priority of MILE School is to integrate technology starting from didactics, making it a daily cognitive experience of the students.
That's why the school chose'Flipped Classroom'', this is the digital didactics born in the USA, which is based on recent studies of neuroscience that have brought to light a key concept: learning is rooted in the pre-knowledge of the students, who must be stimulated in order to become the beginning of their cognitive process.
The teaching goal of the Flipped Classroom method is that students, guided by their teacher-mentor, activate a knowledge rooting process through a series of experiences based on both a sharing of pre-knowledge and on the individual learning of knowledge acquired at home. This process allows them to become active subjects of their learning and to understand from an early age the benefits of research, discussion, and debate of the various aspects of facing reality.
The classroom becomes a space in which students share different ways of understanding and the various ideas related to the new concept and, together with classmates, through cooperative learning, and with the guidance of their teacher-mentor, students will come to organise their knowledge.
Thanks to the "Flipped Classroom" didactics, MILE School students learn how to produce digital and multimedia products, acquire online research methodologies that will lead them to discern content in a critical way, use social media designed for the school world and are called upon to build, together with the teaching staff, the foundations of the project of digitization of teaching.
