For an education that promotes values and attitudes compatible with the development of life.
We believe in an educational model that prepares us for life, not just for professional development. Bringing a non-anthropocentric view of the world through education helps us to rethink our relationship with the environment, makes us see that we ourselves are nature and that, as intrinsic parts of this ecosystem, every human action has an impact that needs to be valued, understood and taken into account.
Biomimetic Education Proposal
For this reason, our proposal for biomimetic education promotes transversal work that does neither dissociate the natural world from human beings, nor the science and technology from life. We invite students to open their perceptions and to identify the vital principles nature has created to overcome all kinds of problems.
In this way we stimulate relational thinking, creativity and design skills from the perspective of bio-education. An education, in short, that promotes values and attitudes compatible with the development of life.
Generating Educational Ecosystems
If living is learning, the experience shared during the days in which the program Generating Educational Ecosystems has been deployed at “El Mirall” School has become, in itself, a school of life.
The aim of this document is to collect these insights, along with the moments and considerations that made them possible, so that with all the modesty but also with all the determination, the school can continue exploring new areas and orienting itself towards the future, with the same conviction and commitment with which they initiated it. A path towards the evolutionary transformation of the school’s educational model.
A day dedicated to transforming education
The invisible school proposes a series of disruptive and participatory events where different social agents (directly or not related to the world of education) will highlight issues of high impact on the learning of children, young people and, why not, the adults of a city or territory.
A citizen event that defines (unusual) learning spaces with the common denominator of play, art, theatre or culture as a common thread. The learning spaces will be connected through the invisible school.
Sangaku Maths Educational Project
Sangaku Maths is a proposal for creating a community in the field of learning mathematics.
We believe that the great challenge of our time is to ensure that children around the world can enjoy open and collaborative classes from which no one is excluded.
For us this is an obligation that we reinforce with the seal of the Institute of Biomimetic Science of Barcelona, as we understand mathematics not as an instrument, but as a biomimetic lifestyle.
BiosTEAM Educational Program
First step in the field of science and technology is to connect it with inspired bio models, strategies and patterns.
It is oriented from a natural (decision making) perspective and is used together with Sangaku and in collaboration with the “Biomimicry Institute”.
We are Nature and we cannot detach ourselves from this natural fact. This leads to a change in values and attitudes that makes us rethink the current concept of material progress and asks us to consider the impact of our activities
