Children's Well-Being in Traditional vs. Montessori Schools: A Test of Self-Determination Theory

See More

Abstract/Notes: The present study is a test of Self -Determination theory, which is well established in the field of education with a huge body of empirical evidence to support its assumptions that when the three universal psychological needs (Autonomy, Competence & Relatedness) of a child are met they will grow and function optimally leading to enhanced well-being. It is evident that Montessori philosophy is overlapping with the components of SDT. This study was conducted to examine the extent to which the three psychological needs are satisfied in Montessori schools in comparison to the Traditional schools. A purposive sample size of 80 children in elementary grades was selected from both Montessori and Traditional schools. Perceived support experienced by the children and their Well-Being was determined to establish the assumption of the SDT. The results showed that children in Montessori schools experienced greater satisfaction of needs when compared to traditional school children. However, the well-being of children from both school types didn’t vary much and the causes can be attributed to factors outside classroom. These findings have some strong implications for policy makers, educators and parents.

Abstract/Notes: Abstract Montessori has become one of early learning methods chosen by Indonesian parentsat this moment, formally through education institution, or informally through selflearning at home (Bigceglia, 2014; Woo, 2014); both dedicated for normal and special needs kids (Cipta, et al,, 2019). Montessori education needs Montessori aparatus(specially designed Montessori tools to support sensorial learning) which is relativelyexpensive. Early learning education is normally done within 2-3 hours at school, thusthese toddlers spend most of their time at home. Thus it is clear there is need for parents to stimulate them in the right way, one of the way is by providing Montessoriaparatus or other more affordable sensorial toys. Using multiple methods of data gathering (primary & secondary), toy redesign, design iteration, user product trial andreview; the result of this research is 12 new Montessori toys integrated in coffee table,which add values in terms of multifunction, price, quality, and still apply Montessoriconcept.  Abstrak Montessori menjadi salah satu metode pendidikan usia dasar yang dipilihorang tua Indonesia saat ini, baik secara formal melalui institusi pendidikanresmi, maupun secara informal melalui pembelajaran otodidak di rumah(Bisceglia, 2014; Woo, 2014); baik diperuntukkan untuk anak normal maupununtuk anak berkebutuhan khusus (Cipta, et al., 2019). Pendidikan Montessori sarat dengan aparatus Montessori yang relatif mahal (alat bermain khasMontessori yang dirancang sedemikian rupa untuk mendukung pembelajaran sensori). Dengan durasi PAUD kurikulum apapun yang hanya 2-3 jam disekolah, anak usia dini biasanya lebih banyak menghabiskan waktu di rumah,sehingga jelas ada kebutuhan orang tua untuk memberikan stimulasi yangtepat untuk tumbuh kembang anak, dan salah satunya adalah dengan aparatus Montessori atau mainan sensori lainnya yang lebih terjangkau. Denganberbagai metode pengumpulan data primer dan sekunder, redesain mainan,proses iterasi desain, uji coba produk ke pengguna; dirancang 12 produkmainan Montessori baru yang terintegrasi dengan meja kopi ruang tamu,yang memiliki nilai tambah dari sisi multifungsi, harga, kualitas, dan tetapmengindahkan konsep Montessori.
