Listening to and Learning from the ‘Other’

Jenny Connected

And why do we tend to focus on ‘Others’ who are extremely different to us, when our immediate neighbour is also ‘Other’? I interpret this to mean, how do I see myself in relation to others as opposed to over and above others, and how do I maintain and respect difference?

Meet Beau, a reflection chatbot

Joitske Hulsebosch

It gave me a different insight: that I have to think more about the role of goals in a certain process and to communicate more clearly about this. You have to play with the importance of learning objectives and the level of detail, depending on the situation. Make goals / learning objectives also the subject of conversation. However, talking to specialists I learned that sometimes a scripted bot is all you need.

Helping kids learning to move around confidently

Mathemagenic

Once kids start doing things outside of the house on a regular basis we help them to learn packing what is needed and taking care of being ready in time. Next to a lot of practice and scaffolding what helps here is learning to use calendars, schedules and alarms and smart organisation of the gear needed. When possible we also arrange for different bags for different activities, so swimming or judo clothes can be stored directly in bags when not in use or in the wash.

The politics of translation and the role of staff in Sudbury schools

Mathemagenic

So I asked about existing translations of terminology and got into a chat with Russian-speaking people doing a lot of translations of SDE materials and putting those ideas into practice locally in different forms. It is the last one which is a biggest challendge when it comes to figuring out what exactly the position and the role of staff entails – since the traditional hyerarchy of adults deciding what, how and when kids should learn is easier to let go in theory than in practice.

Growing ideas and PKMastery workshop

Mathemagenic

I needed to make that choice eight years ago, to be able to recover from burnout and to learn how to care for myself, our three kids and my permaculture garden. So, when I got back on Twitter, just at the right moment to get an invitation for a Personal Knowledge Mastery workshop by Harold Jarche in Eindhoven, I had all the fun of getting an update from the first hands of someone who was helping ideas to grow further integrating insights of different people.
