FROM BUDDING TO FLOWERING
Following the broadening of horizons and the multidisciplinary exposure that the Budding Domain enables, the school sees the Flowering domain as the culmination and flowering of the development process of the two core capabilities embodied in the Reali 2030 program – the Lifelong Learning capabilities and motives and being value-driven for the betterment of society.
The Flowering domain provides students with the tools to take responsibility for their learning processes, and translate the learning skills they have acquired into academic excellence. In this, we further the InspiriMental learning spirit – combining inspiration and experimentation in each of the disciplines.
WHAT FLOWERS THROUGH THE FLOWERING DOMAIN?
Following are some main components which the Flowering domain aims to acquire its graduates:
Self-motivated and regulated learning, leading to academic excellence: The Flowering Domain is designed as an open campus that serves the culmination of self-regulated learning, also leading to Academic excellence – which characterizes the Reali school and its tradition. This is also an essential component (and indicator) for nurturing life-long learners.
HOW IS IT CONDUCTED IN PRACTICE?
Here are some elements that characterize the application of these principles in the Flowering domain:
Between Freedom and Responsibility: The open campus’s basic approach is based on the concept of developing lifelong learning skills, and assumes that students at this age need to develop and experience personal responsibility for learning, as a basis for their future coping with a dynamic and changing world. Moreover, many of the students at this age have already experienced a variety of situations in which they have developed personal responsibility (such as instruction in youth movements, participation in sports groups, etc.). Against this background, the Flowering domain provides them multiple opportunities to exercise their freedom of choice in relation to the modes of learning, spaces for self-learning, and more. These also include the use of digital pedagogical tools within a blended learning approach. The learning processes are also monitored by advanced assessment pedagogies, to assist them and us in making sure that they are indeed making responsible use of this choice.
SOCIAL LEADERSHIP INITIATION TRACK:
Laying the grounds for becoming involved and impactful value-driven members of society is the students’ “launching pad” for the next stage of their graduation while creating the conditions for meaningful military / civilian service.
