"教育就是要守护你天性的自由,激发天赋的潜能,面对坚固的体制,我始终相信这个世界会有奇迹发生。所以,请大家原谅我麦兜式的天真,我愿意是这些孩子们一生里最幽暗的那一段路程中,他们身边一盏微亮的灯火。”获新京报年度致敬图书奖的中学教师蔡朝阳演讲视频@阿啃1919回来了

好久没发愤青贴了,积累的能量借吴老师这个话题释放下:^_^

首先,说下我不同意的:“一个人不能改变世界” VS. “保持自己不被世界所改变”。我个人认为可汗学院就属于是一个人改变世界的好例子;如果我成功说服了张三,让张三接受了“保持自己不被世界改变”这个理念,那其实我已经改变了张三自己原有的“随波逐流”的态度。

然后,表示下对演讲者的崇拜。尤其是那段“七日不缚手” VS. “熬鹰” (http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTMxNDc4MjA0.html?firsttime=714),确实是第一次听到这样的类比,很有被震撼感。

最后,理解一下标题《以自由看待教育》。我觉得跟我在DNLE的期末作业结论一样——父母往往是阻碍孩子发展的罪魁祸首。


================ 再贴一次我在DNLE的期末作业 ^_^ ===========================

【Learn Something】When Muhammad Yunus meets Steve Jobs Click to vote up 1


Final Team Project

Part I: When I was a kid...

When I was a kid, I struggled in education system wondering the meaning of life and stuff. Luckily, I found this quote unravels everything——

Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. - Albert Einstein

Even fictional martial artist would agree——

危急之中,风清扬的一句话突然在脑海中响起:“你剑上无招,敌人便无法可破,无招胜有招,乃剑法之极诣。” - 金庸 《笑傲江湖》

It's basically saying that "forget everything you've learned, and it will make you undefeatable in a kung-fu fight."

This got me thinking:

  1. "What's right for kids?"
  2. "Do they really need those books we decided they have to learn?"
  3. "Does every child has the potential to become Leonardo Da Vinci?"
  4. "If they do, what's stopping them from being Leonardo Da Vinci?"
  5. "What about those kids in underserved regions?"

In order to 【Learn Something】, we have to forget everything we've learned and to see the world from a different angle——children's angle. When in doubt, just try to recall those memories from your childhood.

Part II: When Steve was a kid...

When Steve was a kid, one of his saints bribed him with candy and 5$ bills to get him interested in learning.——Errr, so you've been told. If you try the same "bribe" solution on 100 kids, I bet you won't be able to make half of them interested in learning. Why? Because children's mind don't work that way, and the key point is not the "bribe", it's the "surprise"——Steve never would thought something like that could happen to him and it's the feeling of the unexpected experiencing kept him interested, rather than the "experience" itself. In another word, if he guessed Imogene might bribe him, then it won't work.

1、What's right for kids? -- Something unexpected and intriguing. 2、Do they really need those books we decided they have to learn? -- Only if they don't know what's coming next. 3、Does every child has the potential to become Leonardo Da Vinci? -- Yes! They certainly do! But if they can't survive the education system without damaging their brain, then adios Steve and hello Mr. President.

ZhuangZi(庄子) lived around 4th century BCE believed to rule a kingdom, the only thing the king needs to do is nothing, just go with it and it'll be fine——

无名人曰:“汝游心于淡,合气于漠,顺物自然而无容私焉,而天下治矣。” --庄子《应帝王》

Part III: When Muhammad was a kid...

When Muhammad was a kid, his mother was afflicted with psychological illness. I can imagine with a jewelry store to run and a wife can't really help much, Muhammad's dad must been too busy to take care of all 9 children. And Li Ka-shing(李嘉诚), whose father died when he's 14. Since he had to take care of his mother and 3 brothers & sisters, I thought he might not been able to get lots of attention from his parents, too. Both extraordinary man, not able to get much parenting when they were kids. See the pattern here? But Why?

4、"If they do, what's stopping them from being Leonardo Da Vinci?" --It's because all the "anti-pedagogy" forces around the kids, left them no chance to lead and no room to fail.

5、"What about those kids in underserved regions?"

--Let's do it the 'Bangladeshi Style': Invest the money into a new-born kid for his education as venture capital, and expecting to be paid after 2 decades from the kid's salary. In the time being, we can exchange our investment like stocks, as long as we get the kid's school reports and analyze them like they're financial statements.

From a sceptic's eye, it doesn't seem very promising with all those governing rules in financial world. But let's take a minute from recent time and put it back in ancient Chinese, in a book that solves everything The I Ching 《易经》——

四十一卦【损】(艮上兑下)初九:祀事遄往,无咎,酌损之。

Means it's ok for you to rush into something and lost some money, when it's an urgent call. I think it's pretty safe to say, our education system needed to be remodeled decades ago, and we're far behind our schedule. So, chop! chop!

Part IV: When Muhammad meets Steve...

When Muhammad meets Steve, they decided to change the world by combining sophisticated financial tools & stunning education technologies into children-oriented solution, and no kid should be left behind. Let's sum this hybrid business model, global P2P learning environment, game-like platform up in DNLE fashion: Value, Pedagogy, Content and Technology.

a、Value: Children got the most potential to became Leonardo if we let them. Just imagine what this world would be like if everyone is great enough to understand how humble he/she is. b、Pedagogy: Learn through unexpected experiencing, learn through leading/teaching, learn through mistaking. c、Content: Keep "every knowledge we taught is for children to forget" in mind, every grown-up should provide their real-life experience for children to learn from, inquiry-based style. d、Technology: Mobile-Internet, SoLoMo, O2O, IoT, personal-cloud..... you name it, nowadays it's not that easy to surprise a child with technology, and we intended to surprise them.

Well back in 6th century BCE, LaoZi(老子) call these four things(In the order of: Value, Pedagogy, ,Technology,Content) different names——

道、法、术、器 *--老子《道德经》

We all human-beings, we all share the same earth, and we all want our children to live in a better world. Let's starts TODAY! Let's make 【Learn Something】 a real deal!

==》 感谢分享,真是一个非常好的项目,如果课程内容,以更灵活的方式传播,就更好了。这样让更多家庭和孩子在生活中都能够参与和行动起来。

怎么理解  “Project WET培训教师的上海小学教师们” ? 是指上海任何小学的小学老师们?

不知道后续同类的活动,还会在哪些地方举行?
