Escuelas libres, rurales y activas: una realidad pese a las trabas de la administración
Cada vez más familias tratan de esquivar el sistema tradicional de enseñanza y buscan alternativas en escuelas “niñocéntricas” que ponen el pensamiento crítico por delante de los exámenes. El directorio ludus.org, que en 2013 registraba 40 proyectos, hoy contiene 800.

"¡Nuestra escuela es todo el pueblo!”, exclama Miguel, acompañante del colectivo Wayra, un proyecto ubicado en Jubgado (Salamanca). Para describir un día en Wayra, primero hay que decir que la hora de entrada no existe. También hay que decir que no hay profesores, sino acompañantes. Y lo último que se debe saber es que no hay temario y cada día es una aventura diferente.

“La clase comienza cuando estamos todas”, asegura Miguel. “El grupo grande llega a la escuela con los dos acompañantes que somos Pablo y yo”, cuenta. Mientras llega el resto, los niños y niñas dibujan o juegan al ajedrez en un ambiente tranquilo y los acompañantes cortan fruta o rellenan el calendario. “Luego llega escalonadamente el resto de la tropa, algunos acompañados por sus padres y madres”, explica Miguel. Y es entonces cuando arranca el día. El Ayuntamiento ha cedido sus instalaciones municipales al proyecto, así que los niños y niñas deciden si quieren ir a la biblioteca, al salón de actos, al polideportivo o prefieren quedarse en una piedra o junto al río. “A lo largo de la mañana nos vamos dispersando en grupitos de peques y adultos pero siempre metemos una propuesta organizada al día. Hoy por ejemplo hemos hecho pigmentos naturales con carbón y hemos ido a una cueva a hacer pinturas rupestres porque estamos hablando mucho del paleolítico”, cuenta el acompañante de Wayra.

Rügen was not Christian at this time. It was conquered by the danish and germans at 1168. Before it was Slavic. And until the migration period (Germans --> Rom) it was Germanic. But most of them left Rügen to the south.

... as I do each year (holidays in Italy) ;-)

Must be something in the genes.
  
Back to the topic, the treasure. The Slavic were very successful pirates. That might be the reason why the Danish treasures were found on both Islands Hiddensee and Rügen. The pirates might have taken them away from the Danish. My guess.

Un pianoforte su Marte (Alessandro D'Avenia)
Immagine

Perciò do ai miei alunni i «compiti di silenzio»: 10-15 minuti di quiete, lontani da qualsiasi oggetto, disponibili a sentire tutte le voci che sussurrano o urlano dentro, per soffermarsi sulla più autentica. Per noi e per chi ci è accanto dovremmo trovare momenti di pianoforte su Marte, in cui, in mezzo a paure mute e incombenze urlate, poter lasciare risuonare le domande nascoste nella stanza più interna del cuore, il cuore del cuore, come Amleto chiama il luogo in cui accogliamo solo gli amici veri.

Quando il tempo vola, in realtà non ha fatto altro che aprirsi alla vita che non muore, alla vita indistruttibilmente viva. È aver trovato il Graal dell’esistenza.

Ieri abbiamo finito di vedere il film "La principessa splendente". I bambini sono invece a circa metà pellicola.
Siamo insicuri se farlo vedere fino alla fine. E' uno di quei film di cartone animato che ti toccano profondamente, lasciandoti con la bellezza della trama e degli immagini, ma anche con tristezza. Un film di cui dopo bisogna parlarne tanto con i bambini.
  
Sono d'accordo. Elena ha pianto parecchio, ma ha voluto rivederlo più volte.
  
Bello, grazie per la condivisione. Sto cercando di prepararmi (per tempo) all'inevitabile!

Un bel articolo dell'altro ieri di Alessandro D'Avenia sull'educazione

Trentacinque minuti per crescere (Corriere della Sera)

Mai come oggi l’educazione dispone di così tanti studi e mezzi, eppure mai come oggi educare sembra esser diventato difficile. Un paradosso che ricorda un apologo di Borges.

Wie viel Manipulation ist akzeptabel?
Schon beängstigend wie kaputt unser Gehirn ist und wie viel Geld in die Erforschung gesteckt wird um es gezielt zu manipulieren. Und dies sind ja keine neuen Anstrengungen, diese gibt es ja schon seit Jahrzehnten.

An interesting study about psychological patterns of millennials (Dec. 2017)

Conclusion
The current study is the first to examine generational differences in perfectionism at a cohort level. Our findings suggest that selforiented perfectionism, socially prescribed perfectionism, and other-oriented perfectionism have increased over the last 27 years. We speculate that this may be because, generally, American, Canadian, and British cultures have become more individualistic, materialistic, and socially antagonistic over this period, with young people now facing more competitive environments, more unrealistic expectations, and more anxious and controlling parents than generations before.

These results suggest that further increases in takeaway meal consumption (and marketing directed at encouraging such increases) are likely to have adverse public health consequences and should be actively discouraged. The government should be considering health protection initiatives to reverse the current trends in takeaway meal consumption, in the context of broader efforts to improve childhood diet and nutrition in home and school settings.

Takeaway meal consumption and risk markers for coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity in children aged 9–10 years: a cross-sectional study
Donin AS, et al. Arch Dis Child 2017;0:1–6. doi:10.1136/archdischild-2017-312981

What is already known?
  • Observational evidence suggests that adults who regularly eat takeaway meals have poorer diet quality, increased adiposity, type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease.
  • In the UK, takeaway meal consumption is increasing. However, little is known about the associations between takeaway meal consumption and chronic disease risk markers in children.

What this study adds?
  • Our study suggests that children who regularly eat takeaway meals have adverse lipid profiles, higher body fat and poorer diet quality.
  •   Efforts to reduce takeaway meal consumption in children could have both short-term and long-term health benefits.

Poverty and obesity: the role of energy density and energy costs (2004)
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 79, Issue 1, 1 January 2004, Pages 6–16,
https://doi.org/10.1093/ajcn/79.1.6



  • First, the highest rates of obesity occur among population groups with the highest poverty rates and the least education.
  • Second, there is an inverse relation between energy density (MJ/kg) and energy cost ($/MJ), such that energy-dense foods composed of refined grains, added sugars, or fats may represent the lowest-cost option to the consumer.
  • Third, the high energy density and palatability of sweets and fats are associated with higher energy intakes, at least in clinical and laboratory studies.
  • Fourth, poverty and food insecurity are associated with lower food expenditures, low fruit and vegetable consumption, and lower-quality diets.
  • More and more Americans are becoming overweight and obese while consuming more added sugars and fats and spending a lower percentage of their disposable income on food.
  • An increased consumption of snacks (5), caloric beverages (6, 7), and fast foods (8) by children and young adults has been shown repeatedly to be associated with obesity and excess weight gain.
  • The content of school lunches has been scrutinized (12), and even food-assistance programs have come under attack for their alleged role in “fattening the poor” (13, 14)

Social Determinants and Poor Diet Quality of Energy-Dense Diets of Australian Young Adults (2017)
Healthcare (Basel). 2017 Dec; 5(4): 70.
Published online 2017 Oct 1. doi:  10.3390/healthcare5040070

In conclusion, the reported dietary energy-density of Australian young adults was high and of poor diet quality. There was evidence of differences for people of lower tertiary education attainment and lower socio-economic status—this information should be used to help ensure that interventions include those most at risk of consuming higher dietary energy-density. Efforts to improve dietary patterns by increasing consumption of low energy-dense fruits and vegetables must be escalated while consumption of energy-dense, nutrient poor foods should be actively discouraged.
