Montessori Schools

Montessori schools utilize technology, as do other schools, but with a particular focus on learner independence and development. The integration of technology into a learning context requires a thoughtful understanding of the core assumptions of Montessori method, right down to supporting family members to ensure the contexts for learner development are relatively seamless.

Montessori schools continue to adapt and evolve while the mission remains the same:

Perhaps irrevocably, remote learning reshaped how Montessori schools integrate technology into teaching and learning. Schools have needed to consult and lead effectively by equipping families with opportunities for exploratory learning. Even post-pandemic, it is unlikely the technology and processes schools created so rapidly are going back into the closet. Now schools are forging ahead in a new context requiring additional infrastructure and support.

Remote Learning Reshaped
Promoting learner independence in environments

The priority, with technology as well, is creating a robust context for learner independence:

Of particular interest to Montessori schools, in general, is promoting learner independence in environments where learners are dependent on family members for access to technology. This is compounded in remote and hybrid learning environments by the lack, in some families, of adequate internet connectivity and/or devices. Yet, Montessori schools typically work to align the familial and educational contexts for human development. Technical infrastructure, support, and training has become a necessary bridge.

Full capability, laser-focused on your school’s specific objective:

Schools need the ability to flex, expand, plan, implement and support technology end-to-end—even if the school’s initial needs are modest. But a generic approach is unsuitable for a learning environment. Too often, managed IT services partners do not grasp the fundamentals of a school’s mission, the specific requirements of its instructional paradigm, or the extent of challenges faced by its learner population. Every school shares something in common, and types of schools from Law Schools to Community Colleges to Charter or Montessori have a specific focus inherent to their model. But one size never fits all. A deeper understanding of each is required, on top of a solid grasp of the range of technical opportunities and requirements appropriate to everything from school administration to classroom instruction and learning rubrics. CTS offers the entire array of technical services focused entirely on education. These include:
