Pedagogical movements

Pedagogical movements and teacher associations bring together people who have set themselves particular goals in the area of education and instruction. They strive to disseminate the knowledge they have acquired and offer specific pedagogical instruments designed to simplify the education process. They write scientific works, lead discussions, organize workshops, create special-purpose organizations – all while doing their daily work as employees of schools and other educational institutions.
