Joitske Hulsebosch

Archeology and legitimate peripheral participation


So there we were: there was an activity where we could participate, but we didn’t know how and nobody was busy helping us to find it out. The kids could see it unpacked and sorted into rough categories, participate in the discussion on specific pieces and puzzle together three molars of a bigger animal, which was decided to be a horse. The post Archeology and legitimate peripheral participation appeared first on Mathemagenic.

“But what if our people dominate?”

Chris Corrigan

Have you ever been somewhere and there are people there not participating, just watching from the sides silently and taking notes?

With the group of participants we talked about various issues, concepts, resources. When I stopped working the most difficult part was to leave that space where ideas are grown and to leave seeds of new insights to be there without helping them to grow. 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.
