– Can you tell me more about “Teacher Training in Steiner Early Childhood Ed and Elementary Education”? 

Building on my background in Education through Art, I've been informally studying and practicing* elements of Montessori pedagogy, Reggio Emilia, and Forest School without seeking certification. At the same time I've been formally training in Steiner pedagogy (nature-focused, mindfulness-, freeplay- and observation-based, radically inclusive, and community-embedded  --at least in its ideal forms) which has vastly deepened my… Continue reading – Can you tell me more about “Teacher Training in Steiner Early Childhood Ed and Elementary Education”? 

– Are you into educational technology at all?

I am very interested in educational technology on the level of policy. I see educational technology as part of the public sphere. I would like to see its architecture approached the same way we approach the architecture of any civic / educational construct, anything intended as a learning environment with the fundamental social function of fostering conflict… Continue reading – Are you into educational technology at all?

Gender, race, and the free software movement

I wouldn't say that issues of racism and sexism are out of place or that they don't belong in the free software movement, or that they are separate from it. I would say that the free software movement is connected and complementary to struggles against systemic oppression and exploitation, by focusing on the computing field … Continue reading Gender, race, and the free software movement

You’re never far from my mind (a message to the Free World)

I wonder about the assisted reproductive technology industry and whether anyone is looking into how free or unfree their practices might be. I got rid of my smartphone which means an entirely different workload and relationship with labour. With Jano now three years old and roaming, it's counterproductive to carry a laptop, and creating computer… Continue reading You’re never far from my mind (a message to the Free World)

Η γλώσσα σου είναι πανέμορφη

Όχι μόνο εύηχη και πλούσια, αλλά και το πολιτισμικό πλαίσιο στο οποίο βάζεις τον γιο σου και εμάς που τυγχάνει να είμαστε κοντά είναι υπέροχο, γεμάτο λεπτές, μαγευτικές ευαισθησίες.

I was reminded of the significance of this in the emergency room yesterday:… Continue reading War-zones and battle-fronts / Dear Bassel Khartabil / Free culture
