Finnish Methodology,

Emotional Education and Multiple Intelligences

Finnish Methodology

The Finnish methodology abandons the education system of memorising and is focused on the development of creativity, curiosity and experimentation, with the aim of not transmitting given knowledge, but learning to think.

With the Finnish methodology it is worked in group with the students, seeking feedback and their participation, with the purpose of them having the leading role. Quite the opposite as in a master class, which is essentially unidirectional.

To achieve an excellent education, there are three areas that influence the competence of Finnish students. The first area is the family, “which is considered the main responsible entity for their children’s education”. The second area is its promotion by the social or cultural institutions, standing out the great library network and their resources. The third one is the pure education area.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is the ability to regulate the emotional response. It is a dialogue between the human intelligence, the ability to reason and the emotional or instinctive responses, which are the first impulse that we have to face the situations in life.

The aim of emotional education is to develop the emotional competences: emotional conscience, emotional regulation, self-management, interpersonal intelligence and life abilities and wellness (Bisquerra R.).

In ISP we carry out an Emotional Education Programme so that students become also competent at an emotional level. Our programme transmits models of ideally facing emotionally. Our programme transmits models of facing emotional situations, which are adequate to the different interactions between students. That is the reason why we develop this project since the Pre-school stage.

We are convinced that during childhood the bases of a correct and balanced, academic and personal learning are built, and this project allows that our students practice basic procedures of emotional skills training.

Multiple Intelligences

The theory of multiple intelligences, suggested by the American psychologist Howard Gardner, provides with a new vision of the concept of intelligence, evolving from a unique and uniform perspective to the fact of distinguishing up to 8 different types of intelligences in the human being: verbal-linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily-kinaesthetic intelligence, naturalistic intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence and interpersonal intelligence.

It is not enough with the fact of having in mind just the linguistic and logical-mathematical skills and the academic results.

All abilities and basic competences have to be kept in mind for an optimal and complete personal development. This is why in ISP we promote a learning method based on the acquisition of abilities and skills of different fields that allow students to progress solving daily conflicts and to develop their social abilities and their creative potential, recognising and valuing suitably the talent of each person and, at the same time respecting and understanding the difficulties that they can experience in other areas or competences.
