Example of Implementation

The ESC. La Llacuna del Poble Nou, in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) facilitates dialogical learning and autonomous inquiring experience to their students, at all levels. Every day, students invest one hour wherever they want to go (in their school). In every classroom, teachers offer different activities and projects for the students to discover and explore, freely, whenever they feel to. This personalized itinerary is encouraged according to the age and the personality of each child and helps students to acquire certain commitment and learning autonomy. This article explains the purpose, methodology, and pedagogical approach of this innovative experience and provides links to their sessions.
