The development of each person is unique, so is yours. Therefore, we do not want to define a uniform ideal for education, but create opportunities for you to shape your learning as individually and freely as possible. By freedom, we do not mean the opposite of structure, but of constraint. We feel it is essential that you are allowed to decide to learn voluntarily and self-determined. It is clear to us that this ideal is difficult to implement consistently in practice, but we are taking on this challenge and doing our best to make it a reality as much as possible.
The motivation for your learning should not come from a sense of duty or fear, but from your enthusiasm. We live and share our enthusiasm and want to make that possible for you, too. The lila.school offers you an exciting learning environment and many opportunities to develop individually. We believe that young people like you basically want to learn when they are not forced to and are allowed to pursue their genuine interests. Even if you are already frustrated by your previous learning experiences, you can find your way back to your own inner motivation at lila.school. We give you time, space and support for this.
In order for you to design your individual learning path, you need good, personal support. That’s why you have your own mentor at lila.school, with whom you can discuss your development and plan your next steps. For coordination we use a special software, which allows you to get an overview of your progress yourself. More and more you will be able to take your learning — and thus your life — into your own hands.
Self-determined learning is not only about the choice of content, we also offer you a variety of methods and settings, depending on which learning type you are and which learning formats you prefer.
