The newton philosophy is based on leading pedagogic research that promotes:
The importance of collaborative hands-on activities – moving between the tangible and abstract during the learning process. Students first manipulate 3D tools on the learning surface. They then reinforce the concept they’ve just learned in an interactive computerized activity.
newton Mediators use meta-cognitive techniques to encourage investigation throughout the learning process. By discussing how they solved problems children internalize a much deeper cognitive understanding, as well as a sense of ownership regarding their progress.
Newton sessions take a spiral learning approach. Building team work and cognitive comprehension, they boost confidence and expand the students’ skills with each new learning session.
