School for life

Since it was founded in 2008, the School for Life Association has primarily dealt with scientific testing and the consequences of acting on the neural development of children and adolescents. Since it has been observed that a large output can be achieved with very little input, efforts in the direction from the beginning are very intense, to integrate these few but very helpful inputs into the classroom (especially in elementary schools).

These years of experience in the field of theater education are shaped by the desire to apply and pass on knowledge. These initiatives, which focus on elementary school students, apprentices and young people in prison, all work with theater-pedagogical concepts and the so-called „Rotter Method“. The common goal remains to strengthen the self-confidence of the children and young people as well as their social skills.

The “School for Life” educational initiative, which to this day aims to offer practical input to promote linguistic, social and creative skills. The positive effect of theater work on the development of young people has been proven in various scientific studies under the direction of important educational psychologists and brain researchers. From the very beginning, the aim of the School for Life Association has been to create, review and use theater pedagogical exercises that have proven to have a very positive influence on the development of the brain. The exercises are explained simply, easy to use and very useful.

Science & Motion GmbH

Science & Motion GmbH was founded in Munich in 2003 and, as the main business area in the field of golf, develops innovative systems and methods for movement analysis and associated neuro-psychologically based training methods. Another business area of Science & Motion is the kinematic handwriting analysis with the program CSWin. This globally unique program is used in research, clinical diagnostics, occupational therapy and in the school environment, especially in German-speaking countries.

The foundation of Science & Motion goes back to the previous long-term research activity of the founder Dr. Christian Marquardt in the field of neuro-psychology and motor research.

Dr. The kinematic motion analysis of handwriting developed by Marquardt pursues innovative approaches that consider the writing movement itself as the basis of learning to write in order to make learning success significantly more efficient than in conventional writing lessons with a corresponding competence-oriented approach. Here, writing is viewed as a motor „behavior“ in which the writer is holistically involved. In particular, intrinsic learning “with all the senses” is of great importance in this context and can lead to efficient and sustainable learning, especially when learning to write. In this context, Dr. Marquardt also initiated the founding of the Schreibmotorik Institut in Heroldsberg.
