The future in our classrooms will be exciting!

But let me start from the first theories about knowledge formulated by the ancient Greeks, supported in the 17th and 18th centuries by the progress of experimental sciences by empiricists such as John Locke, marginalized when the recent philosophical movement of rationalism prevailed but now returning strongly to the present day.

Specifically, Aristotle, in his book "Metaphysics A", connects man's natural inclination for knowledge with the senses and explains why experience is the best way of learning. According to him, knowledge has three stages: sense perception, memory, and experience. Sense perception leads to memory, a higher stage of knowledge associated with imagination. Next is experience, the many memories of the same thing that give man the ability to interpret (i.e. to interpret the present in terms of the past). Through experience (the knowledge of principles), art and science (theory) emerge.

Theory, the highest level of knowledge, therefore, depends on experience. Theory and practice originate from a common point of origin, the world of sensations, the world that surrounds us. In education, this is expressed through multisensory activities that lead from practice to knowledge. In this context, we are preparing our new integrated learning program for our school. We will also include dance in it.

At the dance workshop for educators of the "Skitali" group, I received many useful and beautiful pieces of information. I met wonderful colleagues and facilitators and discovered new things about myself. The students of the teachers' group I met are certainly lucky. It seems, I think, in the photo as well.

The future in our classrooms will indeed be exciting!
