Edu1st schoolnetwork 

  • Educational institutions that decide to be part of the VESS School Network formalize a 5 year agreement during which they will receive 5 levels of VESS training, monthly coaching sessions via Skype, and face to face sessions with Edu1st coaches. Additionally, VESS School Network will have permanent access to all curricular and technological resources and support materials. Finally, VESS School Network will have to go through the process that will grant the Edu1st VESS Accreditation.
  • An educational institution that joins the network of Edu1st schools, which shares the same vision on education, which looks to innovate and adapt its educational model to the reality we are living today, generating cultures of thinking and learning, developing the necessary capabilities, skills and dexterities in the children to live a Meaningful Life with Balance and Wisdom.
  • VESS School Network does things and live education in a way that is different to the traditional one. Walking through a school belonging to VESS Network, there is an environment of connection, of a desire to learn and a different interaction between each one of the members of that learning community. To achieve this, Edu1st places a special focus on the teachers, as it is understood that professional training in itself is not enough, amongst other strategies, an accompaniment of the teaching staff is required. Adequate and constant coaching is the most powerful strategy to generate change on an individual and their daily work so he/she can reflect that upon his/her students. The VESS School Network experiences transformation because professional formation is conjugated with a systematic coaching program.
    Academically, Edu1st has always been on the lookout for the state of the art and most solid material, not only in educational issues, but also in other topics related to neuroscience and innovation. As pioneers in the implementation of PEP (Acronym in Spanish for “Thinking as a Pedagogical Strategy”) and Visible Thinking from Harvard University, Edu1st and VESS School Network approach learning in a different, more connected and significant way for the learner. The VESS School Network is different because they understand that in order to learn it is necessary to understand and in order to understand it is imperative to think and experience. Additionally, we implement a programs that allow the learners to develop habits of mind and dispositions, which are crucial elements for successful performance in todays and tomorrows world.
