4s - Methodology
Our work methodology consists of the combination of the 4 Education's Pillars of UNESCO and the Concepts of the Pedagogy of Sport, Competition and Cooperation:
1 – Learn to know: This pillar involves the act of building knowledge. More than teaching, we want to develop the curiosity to learn more and more;
2 – Learn to do: From the construction of knowledge, it is necessary for the child to understand from the critical analysis and put into practice what has been learned.
3 - Learn to live together: Learning at Instituto SECI is based on the presentation of a diverse and inclusive space. This way we create a less unequal space, strengthening respect, tolerance and empathy.
4 – Learn to be: People can change the world, that's what we believe. Therefore, we celebrate the diversity of personalities and talents through occasions that allow them to meet and interact with different cultures, social realities, artistic and sporting expressions.
Also part of our methodology are the principles of Cooperation and Competition that are developed in our activities that aim to encourage students to recognize their talents, abilities and limitations, seeking to overcome difficulties and their fears.
We are a team of people who believe in the power of the community to transform social reality.
