Jenny Connected

It reminded me of the introductory task that was set on Etienne Wenger’s online course Foundations of Communities of Practice that he ran with John Smith and Bron Stuckey in 2008. We are now in the fourth week of this E-Learning 3.0 open course/MOOC.

Homeschooling over time


Friends are found, choices made, routines are working. Foundation is there and the big question is what exactly are you building there. I keep on thinking how needs of a homeschooling family change over time. No data-based generalisations here, just observations. In the beginning it’s all about role-models and information. Finding people, who made the choice, and figuring out how to fit it in in the own circumstances. Vision (why and what) and boundary conditions.

Tuesday Ryan-Hart’s work on power

Chris Corrigan

So I offer this reflection this morning to remind us that the practice of “calling out” has it’s place, to shake the foundations and remind us of the important truths of difference. And to remind us that we have a unique opportunity this community because we are also gracefully and beautifully “called in” by our friends and mates to notice how the bigger systems of which we are a part guide our own behaviours and patterns and address them.
