Active learning and comprehension methods
1. Project-based learning:
This is an experiential method in which students take decisions, and complete and assess projects that are applied outside the classroom, in the real world.
By using projects, we bring together different areas of knowledge, train skills and apply what they know. The teachers prepare a scenario for each student to build their own learning process.
Working on projects also leads to the development of interpersonal skills, content contextualisation and globalisation, and in-depth understanding.
We apply several formats within this method:
- Research projects
- PBL (Problem-based Learning)
- Comprehension projects
2. Cooperative learning:
We organise the class into small groups in which the students work together in a coordinated fashion to solve academic tasks, acquire concepts, competencies and social skills, while developing both their own learning as well as those of others around them.
