Ecosystem Vision of Education
The study of ecosystems shows the importance of certain vital principles that guide how diversity is managed in complex and highly interrelated environments. In the same way that in a forest there is no single source of nutrients, protection or communication, education understood in an ecosystem context seeks to identify the main agents that intervene in formal and informal learning processes and focuses more on the relationships than the subjects .
The educational process thus transcends the physical limits of the school and extends to its relationship environments with the intention of stimulating agents to take an active role. Cooperation, symbiosis, diversity, resilience, reciprocity, dynamic balance, adaptation, sustainable use of time and resources, are some of the concepts that are incorporated into the main strategic lines of educational projects.
Although collaborative learning is considered one of the preferred formulas in current educational models, although an inertia is maintained that emphasizes learning as an individual process, derived from a Darwinian vision of evolution in which competition is situated by on.
The survival of many species, especially those that operate under ” swarm intelligence ” models are based on complex communication and learning systems that allow them to react and adapt to changes in the environment.
Inspired by these references, Sangaku Education has developed a learning methodology that is based on the collaborative capacity of students who, with a high degree of freedom, can generate their own exercises themselves and even evaluate each other. This model uses an online platform to facilitate communication flows and analytical monitoring of progress.
