Litera Octave a unique, proprietary education model is based on 3 core beliefs:
1. Every Child is Unique with different ways of learning and expressing. One way of teaching cannot fit the needs of different children – it needs to be flexible and adaptive.
2. Education needs to foster real understanding, not rote learning. Children when put in unfamiliar situations, must be able to apply their knowledge.
3. Any education model has to be integrated to be successful. Just adding multi-media or technology is not the answer. All the factors that affect the child - teachers, content, assessment, environment, infrastructure, activities – have to be weaved into a holistic model.
