There is a lot of new information about the science of learning that is spawning a variety of new approaches, strategies and methods for educating children. Many of these are in alignment with basic Montessori tenets such as following the child, using hands on materials, control of error feedback, and more because Maria Montessori developed her “scientific pedagogy” based on her observations of how children learn. In other words, much of her method is finding support in current research and others are developing similar approaches to instruction. The resources below cover the cognitive psychology and neuroscience of learning as well as teaching and instruction methods developed from this information. They were gathered in the course of our work and provide high-quality information is of interest to Montessori teachers and schools. The information has been divided into sub-topics corresponding to the buttons below to make it easier to find the information you want.
