Apps basadas en la pedagogía Montessori Uno de los principales objetivos del método Montessori es que cada niño pueda desarrollar su potencial en un ambiente de aprendizaje estructurado. El método se basa en la aplicación del conocimiento ciéntifico sobre las etapas del desarollo del niño, para crear los materiales didácticos apropiados a cada nivel educativo. Según Montessori, entre los dos y los seis años, los niños se encuentran en una etapa en la que desarrollan su autonomía, exploran e interiorizan el ambiente a través de los sentidos; viendo, tocando, nombrando o explorando, gracias a lo cual, pueden organizar el mundo que les rodea. Investigadores y educadores formados en el modelo Montessori han desarrollado tanto desde la universidad como desde empresas privadas diversas aplicaciones basadas en este modelo pedagógico. Edoki es una web fundada por Les Trois Elles Interactive una empresa francesa formada por investigadores de diversas universidades y especialistas en el método Montessori.
