Also unlike other professions, the client cannot choose which teacher is best for them

or even order the service they will receive.

The food system is a close second. The soul of teaching is connecting to the core essence of humanity. The soul of food is connecting to the core essence of Mother Earth. Co-existence.

My prof during my B.Ed used to say that the only thing you learn how to be as a student teacher...is a student teacher.
Peter Berg
27:13:59
Exactly

I find replacing the word needs with the word rights helps shift a teacher’s perspective from providing to inspiring.
Carl Rust
27:35:21
I wonder if Naim has attended any of the AEROx sessions or if he plans to.
Michelle GS
27:37:14
Well said!

If we trusted students and stopped trapping them in classrooms and age groups they would make connections across age groups that could take away some of the pressures around feeling like you need more teachers/adults.

Yes!

Like in Nunavut. Every learner has a learning plan.
Erin
27:40:37
In British Columbia, every learner has a learning plan and some have the additional IEP connected to it.

every child deserves an individualized learning plan

27:41:22
but does it make a difference to have an individualized learning plan if the system is still following all the structure of the conventional schooling?
Deb O'Rourke
27:41:24
We find at ALPHA that the fact that many children play, allows teachers time to mentor one-on-one and in small groups. But the students still need care, and a family/village ratio instead of factory ratio, a true all-ages community, can’t happen at a 25/1 ratio.
Richard Fransham
27:41:32
Who are we to develop individual learning plans for kids if we don’t permit our kids to make personalized learning plans for adults?
Michelle GS
27:41:37
Very open minded principle
Miss Tracy
27:43:20
Interesting point Richard

@Erin can you say more about how the individual learning plans for everyone work inBC?
Erin
27:44:44
My Learning Plan + IEP meetings are with the learner (when capable) and not parents or others. I am fortunate to work in an individualized education system.
Erynn Albert
27:45:33
Learning how to learn.. or better how they as individual people, learn best… There will always be more to learn.. They need to know how they can find what they need, when they need it.
Brigid she/her
27:45:53
That unique cluster of stars image we saw here last night also carries an understanding of their desire to know…so individual ‘plans’ also has to come from the individual not from an adult. I agree Richard.
Stephanie Sewell
27:46:23
@Erin....do they still have to learn according to the curriculum?
Erin
27:46:40
Lifelong learning! We make plans together. Goals for everyone in our family.
Monica Cochran - Learning Without Borders
27:47:14

Deb O'Rourke

The kids can tell we don’t know it all!
Brigid she/her

co accountability is critical in relationships and meaning making.
Gayle Hanlon
27:53:57
the children come before the “benchmarks”
Marsha (she/her)
27:58:20
Patrick & Liz’s presentation earlier today presented the idea of living schools. I can see that as a model for bringing humanity into our schools. https://www.livingschools.world/
Richard Fransham
27:59:48
Thanks Marsha. That was a very encouraging session by Liz and Patrick.
Gayle Hanlon
28:01:08
I feel like a bobblehead!
Erin
28:02:27
I see kids completing their “curriculum” in 2 hours/week and the rest of the week they follow their passions. Perhaps we overestimate the time that kids need to be “in school”
Fiona M
28:02:38
