The Multi-Age School Structure: Its Value and Contributions in Relation to Significant Learning
Most schools around the world are configured as a single-age structure, according to their chronological age. Based on a case study of one Israeli school, this article seeks to present the value and contributions of a multi-age structuring relation to significant learning experiences. The findings of this article show that the multi-age structure allows for student mobility in cognitive, social and emotional aspects according to their developmental age, not their chronological age. In addition, the teaching-learning processes derived from this structure such as adaptive and mediated teaching and peer learning are found as significant learning motivators.
