What is Montessori Commons?
Last year I took a full time Association Montessori International (AMI) course for teaching 2.5 to 6 year olds. After completing it I released my Casa albums online under a Creative Commons Licence at Montessori Commons. I realise that many people want access to Montessori's work but many of the online albums are often incomplete and do not have the authenticity of AMI's approach. We aim to offer the most complete set online. I have now begun the course for children aged 6 to 12 years and put the Elementary work completed this far online, later this year more will be available including a whole album on Music.
The Creative Commons
The Creative Commons licence means all of the work on Montessori Commons is available for FREE. People around the world now have access to high quality and accurate Montessori information to use how they wish.
You may use these materials under the following conditions. If you use the materials you should reference Montessori Commons as the original source. If you adapt it, you must re-share it. You should not, and will never have to pay to access the information available on this site.
Check out these awesome projects
I have included a link to Aseema, a charitable organisation helping children from the slums of Mumbai, where I did my teacher training, if you have spare time, materials, cash or anything else please contact them they are wonderful. If you know of other great Montessori organisations working in difficult conditions let me know maybe we can promote them here too.
Technology, Education and Design; TED talks, which are free to view across the world. While not specifically about Montessori Education, many talks discuss the challenges to our education system and projects taking place to reenergise education. By suggesting ways to empower teachers and students to learn what they need, in ways which suit them. TED is excellent inspiration.
