Methodologikal approaches

  The EVOLSCH logic suggests the following structure of teaching: start with a general overview of the course, project or cluster, given by the teacher, and move to a more detailed analysis and presentations by students. Each module, cluster or project is accompanied by graphs, tables or charts to summarize the material and present it in close and visible detail.

The overview that precedes work at each stage allows for a holistic perception of the topic. This approach substantially raises the students’ motivation and interest and paves the way to goal-oriented learning. While the pupils are becoming aware of the course subject, everyone has the opportunity to consciously choose the topic and area for their independent work on the project.

The EVOLSCH program only stipulates the general direction or a teaching strategy, whereas the range, depth, and order in which the topics are covered is defined by the student – as well as the speed of learning. Thus, each student can find the best possible conditions for learning, based on his or her interests and capabilities. They construct their own logic strings, and other project participants benefit from general discussions and final conferences.

Project work also includes creating interest groups: the students distribute tasks on their own, prepare and show experiments, exhibitions, crossword puzzles, etc. The knowledge is tested in competitions, games, and open presentations. The children learn naturally, without pressure or coercion. This is the kind of school they dream about: no notes, no forced learning, huge bulks of information or rushing speeds.

The EVOLSCH model thus creates favorable conditions for students to reveal and use their creative potential. This system has great potential to encourage and stimulate the students as they get the opportunity to actively and reasonably participate in the learning process.
