 THE CONCEPT OF MOV!ING SCHOOL

Our concept is based on the ideas and methods of new learning and creative education.

We named it „Moving School“ and since 2012 it is on its way step by step: It  focuses on a „changeology“  which means to create with a local team workshops that enable people to become creative and innovate in their personal life, job life and community. Moving School is a new concept covering a wide range of subjects in an interdisciplinary approach: We are building the linkage of arts and science, physical and spiritual, nature and nurture, new leaning environment and individual professional choice. The purpose is to create a learning community that will bring changes making the world a better place. We work from the principle of a team setting based on Art Action, Action Learning, and Service Learning!

So far we found the following helpfull for this cause:

Complex learning with head, heart and hand

According to Moshe Feldenkrais:
„I understand learning in that way, that everything you know, has to be known in three, four or five different ways –  at least!“.

Movement and Meditation

Starting a day or a workshop with movement like dance or Kung Fu,
followed by meditation like silence or impulses from religion and philosophy.

Focus on relationships and personal development

Attitudes and personal development are as much important as methods, skills and other content.
The teacher-student relationship is central but who is teacher and student can change.

Creating a appreciative learning environment

Learning with love and laughter, appreciation and attention for the individual, honoring difference in abilities and ways of learning.
Allowance that participants create their own learning environment according to personal needs and content requirements.
No classrooms but functional rooms for different purposes like meetings, exploration, experimentation, moveable furniture.

Welcoming difference

working interdisciplinary, interculturally, with mixed ages.

Embracing mistakes

Mistakes are seen as source of further learning and development.
Freedom to explore. Freedom of fear for learning.

Teamwork, Exchange Learning, Co-Creation

Learning takes place in an anti-hirarcical setting. Helping each other and looking for synergies needs to be fostered.
Learning creativity in small steps as a habbit. Small steps that create a feeling of success and ease are giving motivation for another or even bigger step.

Out-of-School-and-University Learning, Direct Exposure

Using various learning environments depending on goals.
Direct bodily experiences with people and nature. Service Learning.
