Το τραύμα του σχολείου

«Μερικές φορές σκέπτομαι ότι αυτό ίσως αποτελεί και μια βαθιά πεποίθηση των ίδιων των εκπαιδευτικών. Πιθανά και οι ίδιοι είναι άνθρωποι που φέρουν ένα τέτοιο τραύμα και κάνουν ό,τι είναι δυνατό ν αποδείξουν ότι τα κατάφεραν με την δοκιμασία που λέγεται εκπαίδευση και τώρα περιμένουν στην γωνία να κατακεραυνώσουν όλους αυτούς που δεν μπορούν να τα βγάλουν πέρα με το τέρας της βαρετής ύλης και της απαρχαιωμένης διδακτικής πρακτικής.»

Το σύγχρονο Ελληνικό σχολείο- ιδιωτικό και δημόσιο- είναι ένας σοβαρός μηχανισμός καταστροφής της προσωπικής αξίας του κάθε ανθρώπου και της φυσικής του παρόρμησης για μάθηση, για συνεργασία, για συμμετοχή σε ομάδες. Καταστρέφει το ομαδικό πνεύμα, την δυνατότητα για συνεργασία και αλληλεγγύη. Διδάσκει ότι μόνο ο πρώτος έχει αξία. Πρέπει να είσαι πρώτος και να δουλεύεις μόνος.

Hallucinations; A process of healing?

~ Contemplations ~

Bird On The Wire

I have been thinking to allot about schizophrenia and other ‘conditions’ where hallucinations are a part of an individuals life. I wondered to myself whether it is how we approach such ‘conditions’ that change affects how a hallucination plays out. If people live in a society that is very negative then it would make sense that the hallucination would turn into nightmare scenarios, leading to a sense of doom and paranoia. However, if we lived in a positive society, and there was no stigma, wouldn’t this then effect how hallucinations play out, that instead, they become more positive, or at least manageable. This means instead of trying to stop hallucinations you focused on building a positive outlook as well as reducing the amount of shame that someone may feel because we have marked such differences as bad, and strange and bizarre. Despite the stigma, there could be a high number…

Oh La Life

Bird On The Wire

So far it has been a month here in Spain. I am doing ok with my teaching, though learning to do this has gone by the wayside as I’m juggling – trying to learn Spanish as well as two Coursera courses; one the philosophy of science and the other on how to learn more effectively. So this is my general activities through the week. Nothing much to report there, other then I spent a really nice time with the people I work with so that it feels like I belong and in this month I feel settled into the routine here.

Mainly I have realized that this trip is less about teaching English and more of the reminder of what it means to be at the heart of travel. This weekend, I decided to dive into Couchsurfing and host. Couchsurfing is a website I have used since I was about…

The Self and Learning.

like a rainbow in a rainstorm

Bird On The Wire

Have you ever experienced a time when you cannot do something to the same level as others around you? have you felt that you don’t fit in? Have you lived a life where your abilities are always judged? Do you wonder to yourself why am I always behind? Many have, but for people with learning disabilities, these challenges are a common occurrence. The reason I am writing this is that I have some issues with learning, I get overwhelmed easily both emotionally and with work. It can be labelled as dyspraxia and dyslexia but for the sake for sanity to those that don’t agree in these terms, let’s just call it the struggle.

I wanted to talk about this as I’m currently doing something that I felt I could not do. That is to understand and teach English. Grammar to me was something I would never grasp, so learning to…

Culture Trip: Finding the Essence of a Place.

Bird On The Wire

Back in the day when I used to travel it was all with the aid of lonely travel and that generally consisted of the books, or on the online forums if there was a specific question. That was over 10 years ago. Since being in Valencia I’ve found Culture Trip,https://theculturetrip.com/# this website is so beautifully designed and has given some great tips on where to go.  It less touristy and more locally focused. Its a young start-up company from London,  I hope that it continues to run as they have some excellent writers as well as photographers and web designers on their team.

Not only do they have a website but also incredible videos. This one about Cornish pasties made me tear up a little. I believe it is because I am saddened by the loss of the past in which the emphasis was on family business. In addition products…

Finding your own way.

Lessons…

Bird On The Wire

Yesterday I decided to take an excursion with one of the language exchange groups. It all went off to a bad start as I missed my bus by one minute and the other was not due for another 20. I couldn’t rent a bike because I left the card at home. Not only this when the bus approached the stop the bell didn’t work, I pressed both! Needless to say, I ended up being 15 minutes late. Incidentally, though I didn’t push this I was only 10 minutes late so I had thought they had left, then I was seen walking nonchalantly towards the main road, thinking oh well, I just go to the beach here. Then I walked past two people spouting lots of Spanish and aiming it at me. It turns out they had been waiting all that time and were not too pleased. Oops! So I did…
