Engaging adolescents through experiential learning.
By engaging students in physical learning, by engaging their hands together with their intellect, students are involved in a contextualized experience where they can see the practical application of their learning and the relevance of their studies to the world around them.
Experiential learning is the point of engagement for adolescents. At Melbourne Montessori Senior School we use location as a driver for learning and empower students to shape their world. Students might choose to build a bicycle to learn about dynamics and gear ratios or encounter history face to face making a documentary with a WW II veteran at The Shrine.
