A new way of learning called DmM

Here, we shall acquaint you with a modern way of learning used specifically for our Africa Program participants, our unique system is called DMM, "Doctrine of Modern Method". DMM was established by a large association of Danish teachers in 1995 after an ongoing period of development in several other educational methods. The state of the art learning system was finally created with the intention of restructuring how students learn, retain and express information.

The DmM system radically changes the distribution and type of work that is allocated to the teacher and to the student respectively and, what is more, it changes and improves the student’s ability and potential to learn and work, both independently and collectively.

In the old and tedious school that we all know, the teacher has the knowledge and the patent, the initiative so to say, of the learning processes, and the teacher is the one who knows and directs all matters that are studied in school, according to the curriculum of the specifi c training institution.

With DmM, this is history!

DmM is a digitally based system that builds on each student having access to a computer that is connected to the school’s digital library, where all the varied and rich contents of the three learning categories of Studies, Courses and Experiences are located.

Thus, the digital library holds the content of all the varied subject matters that the students will study and is always available to all.

The DmM categories of learning are in short: Studies, Courses and Experiences.

* Study Tasks are furnished with a short title that in few words nails down what the piece of learning is about. The study tasks take up half of the school time and are chosen and solved by each student through own choice, with all tasks being forwarded to the teacher, who will certify, add to and in general comment the finished tasks.

* Courses make up a quarter of the school time. Here, the teacher is the host and performer and is obliged to deliver extraordinary, interesting and solid teaching that engages and enlivens the students through many methods.

* Experiences make up the last quarter of the time, in which the students either dive into already suggested experiences that are available from the database or invent their own experiences, which are elaborated in writing and treated or commented by the teacher. The experiences let the students into an abundance of impressions, feelings, experiments and new knowledge, with students designing and concluding in writing or in other ways.
