Caring About The Environment


What do you do to care about the environment? Can you imagine any ways to reduce trash in your life? In this video, You Can Live Without Producing Trash, you will see a woman from New York explain how she tries to live a more sustainable, simple lifestyle trying to do it; in fact, over the past two years, Lauren Singer has produced only enough trash to fill a small jar.

Graduation Speeches 2017. Day 1


Last Friday we listened to the first graduation speeches this year; Andrea, Erlinda, Felipe and Paula were the speakers. They were presented by Amaia, Daniel, Lucía and Paula.

Lucía presented Erlinda




Amaia presented Paula


(And Paula loved listening to her presentation!)




Paula presented Felipe




And absent-minded Daniel presented Andrea


Andrea was so moved by Daniel´s presentation  that she had to dry her tears a couple of times during her speech.


And a big thank you to the speakers and to the audience.... going without the break to attend the speeches is something that I really appreciate.

If Students Designed Their Own Schools...


How to reform education for the 21st century... maybe letting students design their own schools?

If you could design your own school, what would it be like? 

Watch the video to learn about an actual experiment, The Independent Project: a group of students gets to create their own school-within-a-school and they learn only what they want to learn.

These are some of the things that come out in the video:

* self-directed learning ( are students able to teach themselves?)
* what´s the role of the teacher?
* who decides what´s good work?
* independent freedom and thinking
* what tangible benefits do you see?
* different types of learning
* no assigned work / no tests
* learning becomes a group activity / peer support
* the ownership of students over their learning
* what happens to students who suffer from dyslexia?

You may choose subtitles for the video in English or Spanish

Thanks to Antonio for the link!
