Art Exhibition 2011

FSIA presents the art exhibit: "The Art of children's thinking".

On October 17-28 at Weston Regional Library, more than 300 hundred pieces of art representing what children from 1 to 5 years old think about thinking were exposed. Henry Michelsen was the jury

We were astonished by children's abilities and powerful minds. We learned more about meta-cognition and what thinking is from our children's perspective. It was a hard work of a great team reflecting about art as a powerful language, and how children express their thinking. THE ART EXHIBIT WAS SIMPLY AMAZING!

Congratulations to our winner!

Ven Diagrams....AMAZING!

At our international institutes "The Power of Making Thinking Visible" participants have the opportunity to observe various classes and see the theory in action.

Just watch this VIDEO to witness the power of using thinking as a pedagogical strategy for learning with a group of 2 year old children!

Well done to our amazing teacher: Judy Granados for such inspirational work!

Major International Conferences

Edu1st is present at Major International Conferences

At Edu1st, we believe education is a dynamic processes. The learners are not only the children, but their parents, ourselves, the whole community.

We are living in exponential times. Education needs to change and understand we cannot continue teaching for the industrial era using ideas from 100 years ago. Research is providing us new tools to understand our brains' potential. 21st Century is demanding new skills from us that were unknown a decade ago. Today, more than ever, Ethics and values are crucial for our world future.

Collaborative work is leading the way. Different disciplines are now integrating their knowledge to create a better future. At Edu1st we understand this and we actively participate world wide in various conferences. We are presenting and sharing our work with the world and we are also learning from leading researchers and practitioners.

More information on the learning from these conferences and how your children are learning at our schools will be provided at the coffee mornings, the weekly news letters and on a daily basis through the experience your child is enjoying at the school.

Feel free to contact us for any comment or inquiry.
