Have you ever thought about how many different educational styles a child in our society runs daily?
During their days are followed by rules given by the family, (mother, father, grandparents, uncles, and nannies), school (subject teachers, pre and post-school educators, external experts) sports and extra-curricular activities (swimming, football, loud piano, singing etc.)
Every adult who revolves around the growth of the child gives his own rules and tries to pass on his own principles with the positive intention of growing him at his best. In fact, it happens that often the data stimuli are very different from each other.
To make it easier for the child to recognize the context and what is related to that context, there is a need to define in a structured way the boundaries and limits within which he can act during a given activity. It’s a bit like drawing the lines of a soccer field in which the children know that the rules of this sport are in place.
The Orma recognizes this need and creates an initial and final moment shared in every context in which it finds itself working. This, together with other techniques, go to form THE PEDAGOGICAL DEVICE DE L ‘ORMA.
It consists of a structured set of strategies, methodologies and “rituals” specific to the growth and training of children, which help the child to immediately recognize the reality in which he is living and working and to identify himself in that situation.
Upstream of the pedagogical device of “L’Orma” there is the hat of the teaching method based on Non-Formal Education (NFE, Non-Formal-Education) and aimed at the growth of the individual.
The L’Orma method believes in “learning by doing”, allowing children and young people to spontaneously increase their maturity and to implement spontaneous and natural skills, thanks to participation in “the first person” “.
The distinctive features of L’Orma’s pedagogical device are the playful form, the sharing, the involvement, the formative value and the recognition in the “here and now”.
One of the methods used is the PASSWORD at the beginning of the day or activity: it is a password or phrase that allows “access”, often inherent to the objective or purpose of the activity itself. It suggests to the child that the reality in which it is entering is important and valuable (we do not use the password even for PCs, mobile phones, tablets, etc?), Helps to identify their belonging to the situation in which it is entering as a personal place and known and also leads him to the “here and now”: I’m there, I start my day/activity, I’m ready to get involved!
The pedagogical device of L’Orma has been well studied by expert pedagogists and educators and uses many other effective techniques in its methodology … do you want to discover them? You just have to participate in our activities in the Camp !!
