Homeschooling over time


In the beginning it’s all about role-models and information. Once the choice is made the need for acceptance and like-minded people becomes very strong: at the beginning the stress from explaining and defending “deviation from the norm” is very high and it helps a lot to be with people who share your views. I keep on thinking how needs of a homeschooling family change over time. No data-based generalisations here, just observations.

Blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas


While blogging is public and the usual norms of civilised writing apply, it is you who is in control.

It is a comforting model. The model implies that there is a way to know what the answer might be, and that a person (our plastics expert) could have this knowledge, and that the knowledge can then be acquired by a learner.
