    Dr Peter Gray talks Play, Creativity and Freedom

    Dr Peter Gray talks Play, Creativity and Freedom

    “Creativity is not something that can be taught, by definition it requires freedom.” Dr Peter Gray is a professor at Boston College and author of Free to Learn







    In today’s clip we dive into the waters of creativity with Dr Peter Gray, world renowned for his promotion of incorporating play in all aspects of a child’s learning. We see how creativity is what is lacking when the goal of school seems to be testing with little or no time for creativity, a skill so much needed in the automation of today.

    Pat Farenga, John Holt and Self Directed Learning

    Pat Farenga, John Holt and Self Directed Learning

    Hear of the late great John Holt´s timeless understanding of how children learn (and fail) through following their own innate curiosity and endless creativity







    While working with John, Pat was able to appreciate the stark contrast of giving children respect and autonomy to understand the world around as opposed to cramming and regurgitating soon to be forgotten facts for constant tests, or as John Holt named it, “The Charade of Leaning”







    This is a real gem of a clip from the podcast as Pat was originally a skeptic of John’s ideas of education until he saw the beautiful simplicity of it working in action!







    Pat can be found continuing John Holt’s legacy here

    A major pro of Homeschooling is being creative and considerate

    A major pro of Homeschooling is being creative and considerate

    Homeschooling naturally creates peaceful, voluntary family relationships based in mutual considerations and consent. Trust comes from respect.







    Homeschooling shouldn’t be a chore! It should not resemble the outdated model of rewards and punishments. It should be a sharing of this journey called life! Homeschooling offers parents and children the chance to grow something new. Say no to the trauma created by strict school environments.







    Join Skyler Collins and listen to his journey of following his parents footsteps of an authoritarian parental style with little or no success, to embracing the freedom found in Homeschooling. Skyler changed his Homeschooling to incorporate a strong emphasis on Self Directed, Self Motivated Learning, or as it could be called Unschooling!

    Homeschooling sees children for the humans they are!

    Homeschooling sees children for the humans they are!

    Self Directed Learning! A lifestyle that allows for your child to know themselves, understand their needs and be seen as a free and powerful individual.







    Crystal Byrd Farmer is the founder of Gastonia Freedom School, an Agile Learning Center for pre-K to 8 with and without disabilities in Gastonia, North Carolina.







    Crystal takes us through her journey of discovering the Self Directed Learning philosophies when she became friends with a family Unschooling their children. She tells us of the “deschooling” most parents have to go through to appreciate the endless benefits of Self Directed Education and how she uses those to give her students the respect and support they need to blossom.







    “Let go of the need to control your child’s future, your child right now is not your child in the future. Watch them grow into something you can’t even imagine! Try and see the child for the human that they are, Supporting the whole child instead of meeting some arbitrary standard.”

Will Change the Way You Think about Homeschooling

This podcast has completely shifted my mindset and helped to ease my fears! I'm seeing a whole new world of possibilities for homeschooling and now I'm even thinking about world schooling my children! The possibilities seem limitless! Thank you so much Graeme for providing this incredible information and amazing experts on your podcast!

Having worked as a public school teacher in inner city Philadelphia, I knew that I wanted to homeschool my own children! I remember coming home from work feeling stress, anxiety and frankly I was shocked by everything I witnessed and experienced--and I was at a "good school." But I was also scared..."What were the other options?" "Could I do a good job?" "Would I be cheating them out of a powerful experience?" This podcast answered all my quetions and helped me to find a solution that is perfect for myself and my family! Thanks so much Graeme!
