The Montessori classroom is designed for movement.

The Montessori Method: An Education For Creating Innovators. Imagine an education system that trained students to be creative innovators and leaders without the use of grades, tests or homework. It actually exists and it’s called the Montessori Method. The Montessori Method focuses on fostering a hands-on, self-paced, collaborative and enjoyable learning experience.

One of the most striking aspects of Montessori education is its similarities with the “fail fast, fail forward” do-it-yourself hacker mentality that has built many of the most innovative companies in Silicon Valley.

Il viso di Maria Montessori è famoso in Italia, perché per molti anni è stata l’unica donna a essere rappresentata su una banconota: era infatti il volto che osservava gli italiani sulla banconota più diffusa, quella da mille lire. Nata nel 1870 vicino ad Ancona, ha compiuto studi di Medicina, con grandi risultati.

Ha iniziato a occuparsi di bambini con problemi psicologici e con un suo collega ha avuto un figlio.
