A team of Montessori teachers, trainers, and researchers in Bulgaria developed a new approach to teaching and learning media and digital literacy in Montessori preschools. Following the principles of an action research project, the team developed and assessed the usage of multi-sensory Montessori materials that teach six media and digital literacy aspects - information literacy, communication and collaboration, digital content creation, safety, problem-solving (Tsourapas & Thompson, n.d.), and critical thinking. Furthermore, the research team aimed to use as few technological aids as possible.

Desislava Stoeva is a Montessori trainer and Assistant professor at the pedagogical faculty at Sofia University. In 2008, she established the first Montessori school in Bulgaria. In 2017, Dessi established the first Montessori qualification at Sofia University with the support of Barbara Isaacs, the current president of Montessori Europe. A few years later, a Master Montessori program at the same university was created.
