The Didactic-Pilot is

  • a Wikipedia for brain-friendly learning,
  • an open university for  the development, dissemination and exchange of a brain-firendly approach, increasing in the number of its users.
  • An answer to the acceleration of the challenges parents and teachers are facing.
  • And last but not least, it supports the economic reorientation of Europe’s post-industrial leisure-society, as Europe increasingly has to rely on its most important resource, the brain.

Our Topic:


Art: a basic human need;

neuro-didactic answers
to increasing social challenges:

Facing the increase in socio-pedagogical challenges,
partners from Great Britain, Germany, France Lithuania,
Czech Republic and Turkey working in education realise
they need to cooperate to provide an option for changing
the coming disasters into actual opportunities for a
culture leading Europe tomorrow.

Whether the aging population will be able to rely on the
soundness of its social systems will depend
EXCLUSIVELY on the work-dynamic of the coming

The Didactic-Pilot has been created in order to support
in comprehensible and appealing way those who are
responsible. The ground-breaking findings of current
research in cognitive neurology provide help of so far
unknown dimensions
especially with regard to school
application rejections, violence and social exclusion. The
recent dicoveries about the importance of brain-friendly
learning are revolutionary.

But they will be too late if they’re not also met by parents
in particular in the first instance.

The partners therefore follow the appeal of the leading
scientists at the 5th World Symposium “Decade of the
Mind” 12th September 2009 in Berlin, who were
demanding the direct transfer of scientific knowledge to
the public in order to serve an evidence-based

The partners share the conviction that only the direct
cooperation of currently active pedagogical staff with
scientists will enable us to seize the tremendous
opportunities the 21st century offers at the beginning of
the electronic era.

Project application
„Art: a basic human need;
neuro-didactic answers
to increasing social challenges."


Why Art ?
Because through art you learn
with all your senses!

Two important pillars our project refer to:

International analyses confirm that priority should be given to
artistic development in education and economy as the leisure
society of post-industrial Europe will depend largely on art as
a resource, product and new market sector.


In this respect, the OECD has set a landmark in 2006 within the Programme “Schooling Tomorrow“ :

«personalising learning» is of growing prominence in thinkíng and policy discussions on the future of education ..It springs from the awareness, that <one–size-fits-all> approaches are ill-adapted both to the individuals and the knowledge society at large.
...promoting life long learning, the agendas reach well beyond the institutional confines of the places called «schools».”



The following publications were translated and published in the 6 partner countries:
