Traditional Education vs Innovative Education: transformation in Early Childhood

It is common that in the search for colleges or universities, parents worry and review in detail the curriculum, strategies, references about the educational institution and a plus in the development of other skills in terms of languages, new tools, opportunities and skills necessary to face the challenges of professional or university life.

However, the choice that parents must make when their children enter the kindergarten is essential, since they will face a transition process in which it is necessary to consider: What is the discipline approach that the kindergarten has? Can I get involved in the processes? What pedagogy does it implement and what are the children's learning strategies?

The position around how children learn and how knowledge is built, reveals some differences in the educational processes that some academic institutions teach, based on traditional processes or processes of innovation and educational transformation:

1. Traditional Education presents, generally, an exclusive emphasis on the development of intelligence, logic, mathematics and linguistics, based on the transmission of knowledge and on a strongly theoretical and frequently mechanical learning.

2. It has overlooked other types of abilities, capacities and potentialities that children can develop, glimpsing serious problems in their creative, reflective, purposeful and critical capacity, reinforcing the image of the child as a subject to whom knowledge is transferred.

3. Innovative Education values ​​the diversity of languages, codes that children use to express their feelings, perceptions and thoughts; recognizes their diverse capacities in the construction of meanings about the world and reality, valuing shared and subjective knowledge among children, adults, peers and the environment.

4. According to Loris Malaguzzi, founder of the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy, innovative education proposes a change in early childhood education, fighting to make children's rights prevail, recognizing them as protagonists of their learning and not only as recipients of information.
