WHY MONTESSORI IS THE MOST OPTIMAL WAY OF LEARNING

ARE YOU CURIOUS TO LEARN?

What Contemporary Neuroscience Tells us About What Living Things Need to Survive, and Why Montessori Education is Probably Humanity’s Only Hope

  • About fundamental laws of physics and principles of EVOLUTION that affect and have shaped all kinds of living things.
  • About that one WEIRD TRICK that you and every other living thing are doing, every day, all the time.
  • That life is an ENERGY GAME and how that game is played. What would it mean for you to have found The Strategy that is the absolute best one for you?
  • About the newest NEUROSCIENCE research on how the brain functions to make an "educated guess" about your best course of action.
  • How Montessori pedagogy meets the biological needs of the DEVELOPING BRAIN and why Montessori education may be humanity’s only hope.
  • What “education for life” can actually mean and how it equips children to meet the CHALLENGES of the 21st century.

Education for Life:
Why Montessori is Probably Humanity’s Only Hope

This series of lectures is designed to acquaint attendees with current theoretical neuroscience research showing how the brain operates as a kind of hypothesis-generating prediction machine.

It will address the interplay between top-down "cognitive" processes and bottom-up information from the senses. It will explain why evolution shaped the brain to operate this way, and how, even in the modern world, these foundational mechanisms still exist to guide our growth and behavior.

This understanding of the brain is fascinating, and once this method of operation is understood, one begins to see the importance of the method of facilitated growth that characterizes the Montessori prepared environment and ethos.

Hello,

I am Steve Hughes,

I am a pediatric neuropsychologist with over twenty years of professional experience. Being a long-term advocate for Montessori education (and a Montessori parent), I have spoken to groups all over the world about brain development, diagnosis and treatment of learning and attention problems, and environmental conditions (at home, school and work) that support the optimal growth of higher-order cognitive skills. I spent over a decade on the faculty of the University of Minnesota Medical School and am past president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology. I was the founding chair of AMI’s Global Research Committee and currently I am a member of the AMI and AMS Research committees. I'm based in Prague, Czech Republic, and I'm a frequent partner with Montessori Institute Prague.
