The Solution

The Dialogic Approach

As the name suggests, it’s about using dialogue to educate. If done well, it can have tremendous results. These conversations invite students to speak from experience, respect, and understanding. It has been shown to increase Mindfulness, Critical Thinking, and even Cultural Differences.

The Socratic Method

It’s been over 2,500 years since the death of the great Philosopher, but his famous love for questioning is still something we should all appreciate. Not only do great questions create excitement and interest, but they also have the potential to improve critical thinking. And if you use the Epiphany Question Method, your classroom will suddenly get supercharged.

Safe Spaces

By Safe Spaces, we do not mean that there shouldn’t be disagreement. On the contrary – encouraging students to disagree and agree respectfully and inside of a framework build character and gives students the chance to explore and test new ideas. As an Educator, you have the power to empower students.

What is the format? Who is this format for?

Facilitation is focused on the process. Allowing students to grow both academically, but also personally through a guided experience. Sessions can take many forms and fit many different objectives, but the same core principles can be applied throughout.

What is a Facilitator?
Instructors (that means you) are knowledge experts, being a Facilitator allows you to be a process expert. What that means is Facilitators empower participants to believe in their own experience, feelings, and past knowledge to find their own conclusions.
Can I be a Facilitator?
Of course! Especially if you’re an Educator – you already have a great foundation. Check out one of our Teacher Testimonials if you want to hear more.
How long is a session?
Depending on your desired learning outcomes you can create 30-minute sessions or ones that last an entire day.
What age group is it for?
Students can get engaged in these sessions as early as 11 years old, sooner for more gifted students.

But Educators can utilize these tools and approach no matter what age they work with.
