New Look, New Content

Hi everyone, and especially to those who have followed this blog over the past 6 years:

I’m changing the outlook and content of this blog to reflect our current educational lifestyle.  What started out as a blog, (online journal) chronicling our home-educating journey and sharing that with mainly family and friends, is evolving into a site with more applicable, up-to-date information about education as a whole with its merits, and what education means to our family.  As of the next school year, 2018-2019, all of my children will be attending traditional school.  As I don’t hold to the popular view or ideology that learning only takes place within a certain confined space and within a specified given time, I also don’t hold to the thought that outside of the traditional school setting my children cannot and are not learning.   Learning is, and should be, an ongoing state of being.  It’s not something you do in the way of ticking boxes to show what you have ‘learnt’, but it’s more of an ongoing process full of imagination and creativity, splashed with an adventurous spirit which ever seeks to delve into the unknown gleaning the gems hidden and yet to be explored.  Learning is indeed a life-long journey, and the following quotes below truly encapsulate my thoughts about education/learning:

“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

Clay P. Bedford

 

I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas, etc, about education as well as your and/or your child’s/children’s learning experience, so please do leave a comment below.  Questions are welcome too 😉
