10 top tips

Peter Gray in Luxembourg (EN/FR)
Befreit lernen / Free to learn / Libre d’apprendre 

The Optimal Context for Self-Directed Education Conditions present in hunter-gatherer bands and SVS, but absent in conventional schools:

1. The social expectation (and reality) that education is children’s responsibility.
2. Unlimited freedom to play, explore, and pursue own interests.
3. Opportunity to play with the tools of the culture.
4. Access to a variety of caring adults, who are helpers, not judges.
5. Free age mixing among children and adolescents.
6. Immersion in a stable, moral, caring community.

Wir werden ihnen eine verwüstete Welt hinterlassen, auf der das Leben für sie sehr schwer sein wird. Aber da sie ja nicht zurückschlagen können, fahren wir damit fort — wir können schon gar nicht mehr anders — und beruhigen unser Gewissen (sofern es nicht ganz zum Schweigen zu bringen ist) mit der Annahme, dass ihnen schon etwas einfallen wird, um unsere Gemeinheiten wiedergutzumachen. – Michael Ende Continue reading “Opruff fir en anere Bildungsmodell”
