TEENAGERS CREATING A BREAKTHROUGH IN LEARNING
 
This past week BBC3 produced a wonderful reality tv show called 'Leave Us Kids Alone.'  Twelve teenagers with a passion to improve education for young people today were given a whole school to run for three weeks.  They had thirty kids, aged 12, to teach for this three week period.  While the first week was definitely rocky and the teenagers were being teenagers, by week three it was breathtaking to watch them come together as a team to create a new style of learning.
 
At the end of the third week, their students were tested and achieved above average scores on the subjects they'd taught.  But better than that, parents were reporting that their twelve year olds couldn't wait to get out of bed in the morning to go to school and that when they came home at night they'd enthusiastically tell them about the amazing new things they'd learned in history, math and other subjects.
 
What worked was:
 
1. The teenagers had a real passion for having learning be fun, exciting and memorable.  They took the time to find new ways to get the kids to learn, like using balloons with messages in them about the battles of 1066 or designing and making their own t-shirts to express themselves or creating hip-hop music as a form of learning poetry and expression or empowering girls to be on the football team ... and they won their first inter-school match even though they were a brand new team of three weeks.
 
2.  They weren't trying to be professional with their students.  They were befriending them while still maintaining authority AND having fun together. 
 
3.  Hanne, the young woman who finally became the school head in week three, was awesome to watch.  Her leadership skills at the young age of 19 were awesome.  She said, and I'll bet it will come true, that her passion is to become prime minister some day.
 
What didn't work was:
 
1.  They tried working without timetables and schedules and found that the students preferred having some structure to follow.
 
2.  Some of the team didn't like pitching in, especially in the mornings, to get things ready to roll, so it was often left to 3 or 4 of the teenage girls to clean up the place and catch up the missing gaps when a teacher didn't show up for their class.
 
These teenagers and the BBC deserve huge congratulations for pulling off this amazing series.  It would be wonderful if every parent, teacher and school head could watch the whole thing from beginning to end as it offers so much of what can work in the development of new learning.  Here are a few of the www.youtube.com clips from the earlier part (week one and two) of the series:

Let's hope someone in a teaching or school head role has seen this and can implement some of the wonderful breakthroughs that these young people initiated.

NEW PARENTING AUDIO RECORDING
with The Evolutionary Network trainers team

 

In early October, Jane and I were in Melbourne doing a one day workshop with 16-25 year olds called YOU'niquess.  These teens are truly breathtaking and we were awed by how visionary they are and how easily they dive into the creation of the new in the world.  As a result of this day, we decided to host an impromptu call with our trainers team to talk about New Parenting ... how parenting new kids is so different today from just a few decades ago.  Some of the highlights of it included:

 

... Kids today are being born into a world that's moving faster and they're wired to change very quickly, helping their parents to change as well

 

... These parents see their kids, as well as themselves, as masters in their own right and share the journey together with respect for one another.  One parent shared that they have a debate rule in their house, which means that any decision is up for debate by the whole family.  This allows for authority combined with a structure for openness and consideration.

 

... We looked at how to orient kids to the school system today, allowing them to think for themselves with a touch of the rebel while at the same time being respectful of what's going on there.  One parent even talked about how she's encouraging her daughter to be a transformative agent within the school system to catalyse change.

 

... And finally at the end of the call, Dorothy talked about how she's finding telepathing with babies today is so incredible as they are downloading such amazing levels of information.  We all laughed as she says her friends aren't sure whether she's a nut case or a 'baby whisperer.'

Prayer is one of the best gifts we receive.  'May today there be peace within.    May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.   May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.   May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.   May you be content knowing you are a child of God.   Let Gods presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.    It is there for each and every one of us.'     Just believe!



The joys of getting older

Hello, dear friends

You may have already seen this.  I have. But it arrived today at a time that it was really valuable for me to reread it.  May that be so for all of you.  You don't, truly, don't have to forward this to anyone,  (and I promise the seagulls will not deface your car if you don't) but if you think it might speak to someone you know, please do!

Love and blessings

Ann

 
The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old. I was taken aback, for I do not think of myself as old. Upon seeing my reaction, she was  immediately embarrassed, but I explained that it was an interesting question, and I would ponder it, and let her know.
 
Old Age, I decided, is a gift.

 
I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be.  Oh, not my body!  I sometime despair over my body, the wrinkles, the baggy eyes, and the sagging butt.  And often I am taken aback by that old person that lives in my mirror (who looks like my mother!), but I don't agonize over those things for long.
I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly.  As I've aged, I've become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. 
I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avante garde on my patio.  I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant. 
I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging. 
Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon ?
I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60&70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love .. I will.
I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set. 
 
They, too, will get old.
I know I am sometimes forgetful.  But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I  eventually remember the important things .
Sure, over the years my heart has been broken.   How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car?  But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion.  A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.
I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.  So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.  
As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think.  I don't  question myself anymore.  I've even earned the right to be wrong.

 
So, to answer your question, I  like being old. It has set me free.  I like the person I have become.  I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.  And I shall eat dessert every single day.  (If I feel like it!)

 
MAY OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART!
    
MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RAINBOW OF SMILES ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART FOREVER AND EVER!
FRIENDS FOREVER!
