Abstract/Notes: In questo contributo vengono presentati gli aspetti caratterizzanti il profilo dell’insegnante montessoriana così come viene definita dalla stessa Maria Montessori in alcuni suoi scritti e comein relazione a esso vada costruita la sua formazione. La maestra montessoriana insegna poco, osserva moltoe soprattutto ha la funzione di organizzare un ambiente idoneo adirigerele attività psichiche dei bambini Essa deve avvicinarsi a essi con umiltà e pazienza, consapevoleche sono loro i protagonisti della loro crescita. Questo atteggiamento si forma non tanto con il possesso diuna cultura pedagogica teorica quanto con l’esperienza dell’osservazione e la supervisione di maestre esperte che aiutano la futura insegnante a sostenere un lungo processo di riflessione interiore e di elevazione spirituale. / En este artículo se presentan los aspectos que caracterizan el perfil del docente, tal y como lo define María Montessori en algunos de sus escritos, y como en relación con el perfil se debe construir su formación. María Montessori afirma que el maestro enseña poco, observa mucho y tiene principalmente la función de organizar un entorno educativo adecuado para desarrollar las actividades psíquicas de los niños. Debe acercarse a ellos con humildad y paciencia, sabiendo que son los protagonistas de su crecimiento. Esta actitud no se forma tanto con la posesión de una teoría de la cultura educativa, sino con la observación y supervisión de maestros expertos que ayudan al futuro maestro a sostener un largo proceso de reflexión interior y elevación espiritual. / In this paper the aspects characterizing Montessori teacher’s profile are presented as they are defined in the Maria Montessori’s writings and how it is built their formation in connection to it. The Montessori teacher teaches little and observes much; she has to arrange a suitable environment to direct the activities of the children, she must approach them with humility and patience, aware that they are the protagonists of their own growth. This attitude derives not so much from a theoretical education culture, but from observation and supervision as well as from the expert teachers who help the future teacher to support a long process of inner reflection and spiritual elevation.

Working Memory and Executive Functions: Effects of Training on Academic Achievement

Available from: Springer Link

Publication: Psychological Research, vol. 78, no. 6

Pages: 852-868

See More

Abstract/Notes: The aim of this review is to illustrate the role of working memory and executive functions for scholastic achievement as an introduction to the question of whether and how working memory and executive control training may improve academic abilities. The review of current research showed limited but converging evidence for positive effects of process-based complex working-memory training on academic abilities, particularly in the domain of reading. These benefits occurred in children suffering from cognitive and academic deficits as well as in healthy students. Transfer of training to mathematical abilities seemed to be very limited and to depend on the training regime and the characteristics of the study sample. A core issue in training research is whether high- or low-achieving children benefit more from cognitive training. Individual differences in terms of training-related benefits suggested that process-based working memory and executive control training often induced compensation effects with larger benefits in low performing individuals. Finally, we discuss the effects of process-based training in relation to other types of interventions aimed at improving academic achievement.

Perceptual-Motor Training and Improvement in Concentration in a Montessori Preschool

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Perceptual and Motor Skills, vol. 32, no. 1

Pages: 71-77

Abstract/Notes: 25 children in a morning class of a Montessori preschool were administered a program of perceptual-motor training which stressed control of impulsiveness and development of attentional skills. 24 children in the afternoon class were controls. All children were administered a battery of psychological tests prior to training and again 7 mo. later at the termination of the training. All the children (both groups) exhibited a mean 12- to 13-point gain in Peabody Picture Vocabulary IQ and a mean 13- to 14-point gain in Draw-A-Person IQ. In addition, experimental Ss exhibited mean gains on the Auditoryvocal and Visual-motor Sequential subtests of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities and in Ego-control scores of the Arrow-Dot Test. Controls showed no such gains. It is concluded that the perceptual-motor training program might supply a useful adjunct to the regular Montessori curriculum.

Abstract/Notes: Madam Montessori believed that training and sharpening of the child’s senses are crucial for their continued learning; she, therefore, developed specific sensorial materials to be used in Montessori preschools for such a purpose. The Montessori Method of education is a system of education for young children that seeks to spread natural interests and activities rather than use formal teaching methods. Maria Montessori exhibited Various Teaching-Learning Aids for refining the senses called sensorial materials. Sensorial training/learning is a teaching approach that stimulates the child’s five senses; taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. It allows children to use their senses to explore and understand the world around them. It includes activities that assist them to study objects, colors, textures, tastes, numbers, and situations. This article addresses the knowledge and understanding needed by teachers working with children on the autism spectrum. Montessori methods are very operative in developing effective teaching-learning aid for sensory training. Effective practice depends largely on an understanding of autism and of the individual child rather than on specialist skills. It will explain how children with autism develop the sensory issues in various Teaching-Learning Aids and to boost children express, classify and enlarge their sensory experiences with the help of the Montessori Method.

Abstract/Notes: An important aspect that determines learning success is the learning method used by the teacher. Teacher prospective teachers should have broad insights related to learning methods. Prospective teachers and teachers need to vary the learning model. Montessori method is one method that follows the natural tendencies of children and teachers need to prepare learning that follows the stages of child development. Based on these thoughts, community service is carried out to help prospective teachers and teachers' insights about the Montessori method. The sequence of community service activities is the training and mentoring of prospective teachers, the implementation of learning by the Montessori method by prospective teachers, evaluation and reflection on the results of implementation, preparation of training materials for elementary school teachers, and the activity ends with the evaluation and training of Montessori methods for elementary teachers. The result of community service is that prospective teachers are happy to have classroom experience and 100% of students are happy because they are involved in innovative learning activities, the Montessori method. In addition, teachers also get experience training in Montessori methods.
