Education is Life Itself

“EDUCATION IS LIFE ITSELF” 23 June 2017

I strongly believe that students should be able to own their learning and their education…
…….
This implies 2 precepts functioning together:
Enjoyment and Responsibility
I believe to implement these precepts we need to look at the tools provided by imagination, talent and creativity which exist in every one of us, both from the point of view of teaching and the point of view of learning…
I am talking here about a two way flow of creative communication…
– How does the teacher impart/share his knowledge/advice in such a way that he enjoys doing so and has a strong sense of his responsibility in this role…
– How does the student learn in such a way that he derives pleasure from it and realises that learning is his own doing…
……..
The Antara Project believes that Education is founded on the following diagram: [>> = leads to ]
creativity >> self esteem >> contentment >> inner strength >> focus >> commitment >>responsibility>> empowers us to tackle change and leads to a happier state of being…
……..
In this, I very much agree with John Dewey:
“Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living. Without some goals and some efforts to reach it, no man can live. Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”
…….
To illustrate what I am hinting at here…
If you think about an example of creativity, like any artistic expression, the artist enjoys making and creating, he also feels responsible for his work and he certainly lives it…
Let me add that:
I do not restrict Creativity to artistic expression, it is much more and is externalised as an expression of what who we are individually and what are all capable of doing if we allow ourselves and are not limited by an outdated system…

About “Politics”

About “Politics” or not…
IMO Politics have reached a point of no return and the changes most of us aspire to will come from individual resolve and strength of vision….
I do believe that artists, creators, makers, educators, researchers, environmentalists, and many others have once more a great responsibility and will speak up, not as leaders but as inspiration and motivators for those who may feel stillness is “safer” than moving forward… All over the world, the sound of change is being heard, it is not a revolution, it is a natural process and I believe it is and will happen… We are all refugees longing for a different global country, and we are all creators with rich inner resources!
As I travel and meet people, this is clear to me and comes from the heart… We are all changing in face of adversity and absurdity, and political nonsense. Hear now how many speak up already!
Today, March 2016, I will compare to March 2020 and March 2025 …So… Let’s see… Much work to be done…
