Braided Funding for Fully Implemented Montessori Early Learning

Available from: National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS)

See More

Abstract/Notes: Creating fully implemented Montessori programs in the public sector presents challenges because states and districts frequently lack funding to serve students younger than age five. Some states offer state-funded pre-K programs for three- and/or four-year-olds, but the availability of these programs varies widely. Some public Montessori programs charge tuition for three and four-year-olds to create mixed age primary classrooms. When establishing policies for how tuition-paying pre-K students will matriculate into the publicly funded program at age five, public Montessori programs should ensure their programs remain accessible to low-income families.

Montessori in the Mobile Era: Building New Learning Experiences Through Tangible User Interfaces

Available from: IATED Digital Library

7th International Technology, Education and Development Conference

Abstract/Notes: The growing prevalence of smartphones in the daily lives of many children has enabled new learning scenarios. An overwhelming supply of educational applications are designed to facilitate their autonomous learning in painting, counting, spelling and so on. Apparently, this approach is in line with the principles of Montessori education (independence, freedom and respect for the natural psychological development of the children). However, the well developed GUI interaction skills (tapping, swiping or pinching items through multi-touch gestures on a screen) of the 21st century children are useless for manipulating physical objects. Exploring the real world requires a different set of capabilities (e.g., fine prehensile skills), often developed through traditional toys and games. For this reason we have developed 3DU Blocks, a proposal that combines traditional toy blocks with the features provided by mobile devices to create new gaming experiences and open the door to explore new educational scenarios. 3DU Blocks is a library for color recognition of arrangements of traditional toy blocks, allowing to use them as a Tangible User Interface. As an early example of the capabilities of this library, we have developed 3DU Blocks Music, an educational game where players have to recreate simple melodies using toy blocks to represent musical instruments and notes. Therefore, the emphasis of Montessori in physical materials to help the autonomous learning process is combined with the immediate feedback and scaffolded challenges provided by the mobile application.
