Untapped possibilities

What if I, as a teacher, took a step back in order to prop the students to take steps forward...? Forward, towards learning and learning techniques for life. I wonder if it's even possible to do that with herds of students and so little time for each and everyone. Does it all comes down to... Continue Reading →

Accessible sharing

We´re all familiar with the expression "sharing is caring" but what if what you share is not great? Imagine if not everyone can use and receive what you share. That is not good care! Is that a problem or not? Until now I have thought that good is enough but now I realise that good is... Continue Reading →

Learning by doing

Is it Dewey who coined the phrase "Learning by doing"? Dewey claims that there is a relationship between knowledge and active inquiry. He also advocated that action, reflection, emotion and theory is prerequisite for continues life-long learning.

Hopefully, we all have visions of a brighter future and then there is the harsh reality...

In love…!

I don´t know if it is the excitement of spring or something else but the feeling I have is pure, present and real. It is official now - I am in love! In love with Coggle! Its usability goes beyond my wildest dreams of what a free mind map tool could be like. It is: User-friendly Aesthetic Collaborative Accessible... Continue Reading →
