The voice of a student, diverse perspectives of learning

Submitted by Alyssa Cabello

In investigating educational theories for a pro-seminar class, I was intrigued by the ideas of creative approaches to teaching, which allows students to arrive at their own solutions to problems when given the space to do so. 

Through this research I found the two concepts that are in Waldorf schooling and Traditional public schooling. Waldorf was shown to be naturalistic by allowing students to learn through experience. Public schools follow the popular idea of learning through the basics. It led me to the idea of mixing the two concepts to build on a more welcoming learning environment and a creative classroom for every type of learner. 

The core of education is to give a chance at reinvention. One of the positives of Waldorf schooling is being able to promote student creativity without the pressures of constricting timeframes within the public school system. We are not changing the goals of scheduled learning within Traditional schooling, just inspiring new perspectives. This allows us to encourage more active thinkers and provide different forms of support for students. 

Bringing the positives of both different types of schooling into the classroom allows the opportunity for future and current students to recreate the idea of normality. Redesigning our perspectives as an intervention towards reinvention.
