Historical Who is Who


1592 - 1670
Moravia Netherlands

John Amos Comenius was associated with the Protestant Christian movement of Moravian Brethren which gave special attention to direct experience. He developed a well tried method of education, beginning in the home in which mothers, fathers and siblings were all involved in mutual learning. They could learn from the natural world around them, and there was a genetically given developmental process. Children would learn more from games with others than from corporal punishment. Girls as much as boys should be taught everything and all should attend a common school.
