Hi, I’m Tanya.
My dream is to see every child on the planet receive free high quality education. I want to empower children and adults so that they understand accelerated learning and how to bring out the best in students.
Children represent the future, they are amazing teachers and incredibly inspiring.
Education is very important, if we get it right we can resolve all the issues facing humanity.
I love the idea of children learning about how to grow food, how energy works and how to teach each other.
Pay it Forward is a big part of my life, I write blog posts for www.pifexperience.org about paying it forward with education.
“In the award-winning documentary Children Full of Life, a fourth-grade class in a primary school in Kanazawa, northwest of Tokyo, learn lessons about compassion from their homeroom teacher, Toshiro Kanamori. He instructs each to write their true inner feelings in a letter, and read it aloud in front of the class. By sharing their lives, the children begin to realize the importance of caring for their classmates.”
Follow the links on YouTube to episodes 2 to 5.
Education scientist Mitra has been experimenting with technology in places around the world without teachers, giving groups of children the means to learn. His work shows that Education is a self-organising system where learning is the emergent phenomenon. Fascinating and thought provoking.
Martin Seligman is the founder of the positive psychology field of science. The Authentic Happiness research centre is based at the University of Pennsylvania. Their website is found at http://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/Default.aspx
There you can also find out everything about his work and participate in in by doing questionnaires and becoming involved in ongoing studies.
A fascinating resource.
