Apple Montessori Peer To Peer Learning Environment

The peer to peer learning environment is a pillar of the Montessori Method. It enables younger students to learn from their classmates in a productive way. It also empowers the older children to become mentors and teachers. After all, comprehension is evident after a student can articulate a concept and assess strengths or gaps in another’s understanding.

Montessori encourages learning from peers in part by using three-year age groupings. This ensures that as children move through the classroom they will be exposed to older and younger peers, facilitating both imitative learning and peer tutoring.
