Ivan Bazina, a teacher from the Junior School Lotščak in Zagreb, was a guest on Bitno.net, to celebrate their 5th year anniversary. He talked about the challenges of teaching in the era of digital technologies that affect children, that is increasing also in teaching, especially during the pandemic. He focused on the Croatian education in new technologies, but emphasizing in the concrete Lotščak system: mentoring, working on virtues, differentiated education, the importance of collaboration and help between teachers and parents, etc.
Junior School Lotrščak is the first school in Croatia founded by parents. Having in mind that parents are their child’s first and most important educators we decided to start a school which would support them in their role.
NGO “Parents’ Institute for Upbringing and Education” was founded with this aim. Our main objective and the reason why the whole project was started is to foster academic excellence of our students as well as their character education and growth in virtues. Our school’s main distinction and its fundamental value is its mentoring program which enables personal approach to each student.
Lotrščak School is a part of the Parentes International Educational Network of similar schools that offer integral education and personal approach to each student.
