Edu1st is a pioneering and cutting-edge organization founded in the United States. With integrity and passion, we seek to transform education by promoting sustainable Cultures of Thinking within schools and the community at large. To achieve this, Edu1st developed the VESS Model, (an acronym for “Vida Equilibrada con Sentido y Sabiduría” or “Meaningful Life with Balance and Wisdom”), a thinking-based bilingual and international pedagogical framework endorsed by the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona. VESS is being used in over 120 educational institutions worldwide.
VESS Innovative Educational Model
Edu1st developed this innovative model, which brings together the best educational projects and research worldwide in the brain, mind, and education areas. VESS is taken from “Vida Equilibrada con Sentido y Sabiduría,” or “Meaningful Life with Balance and Wisdom”).
The VESS Model
The VESS Model is a pioneering, eclectic, and holistic model that harmoniously integrates different strategies, approaches, and methodologies with the Thinking as a Pedagogical Strategy (PEP) methodology. VESS helps to develop individuals who lead meaningful lives with balance and wisdom. This model aims to go beyond the classroom and transform societies by consolidating a lasting Culture of Thinking.
