On socialisation and education

Fri, 29 Dec 2017 09:25:37 +0000

Yesterday, in a discussion with our homeschooling friends we talked about schools. About socialisation as a big part of what happens in a school, even when everyone talks that schools are  about education. In a sense that question that every homeschooler gets, often before any discussion about learning, confirms it. What about socialization? What about […]

Learning ice skating

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 08:24:40 +0000

Last Friday, skating with our homeschooling friends at Openluchtmuseum I though how personally important themes return again and again. Scaffolding, community, learning from experts or novices… It was the first time for my five years old to use hockey skates, graduating from a double runner skates she tried before. She tried to skate on the […]

Winter rhythms

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 12:05:46 +0000

Looking for the drafts to finish I found a list with our weekly rhythm last winter. It’s nice to compare with this year. And yes, by “winter” I mean cold homeschooling season that stretches between September and mid-June (overlapping with the “summer” which is somewhere from mid-April to mid-October :) Winter 2016-2017 Monday afternoon: playdates, […]

Marble runs and music machines

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 11:49:47 +0000

What started from a mesmerising video of a marble run turned into something more. After watching a couple of videos I’ve got curious about the people behind them and the whole phenomenon of (making money from) making marble runs. So we came to an article about it. And then to the video of the music […]

15 years of blogging, FB and what’s next

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 10:51:40 +0000

Ton's post on 15 Years of Blogging made me realise that I had reached similar milestone last June. In this post I look into "more blogging, less FB" issues and outline several points to work on.

Verhalen van de zee: shadow puppets, storytelling and learning around

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 11:46:46 +0000

In this post I discuss what we did differently in our latest workshop at Wowlab and the learning around it: finding what to structure, working on a parallel project and helping without overpowering.

Magic work

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 11:49:49 +0000

Alexander has been into magician performances for a while now. So we didn’t want to miss an opportunity to see one just across the border in Muenster (and it was in Russian, which is always a bonus). What I liked the most from the performances of Piter Bunt yesterday next to the pure magic and […]

What parents don’t see

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 15:30:42 +0000

Homeschoolers hear often that their kids are always supervised by the parents, that they lack time to be outside of the family to learn about other ways of doing things. Today, collecting photos of Sofia from Olaf Ondekt for her parents I realised how much they don’t see when she stays with us. We got […]

Black cape

It was fun to teach him the art of ironing seams. And, with a little advice here and there, he could do the rest. But what I admire the most is the determination.
