We now have a shared collective trauma. This is how I see the effects of trauma every day. But how do we heal and move forward from here? Share your narratives.
This week I’m chatting with Jay Byrd from @beanlearning. We talk about what it’s like being a second generation home educator and home education in the UK in the 90’s. Jay tells us about her passion for project based learning and gentle parenting, and we talk about Bean Learning, which offers UK based online video groups and classes for home educated children and home educating adults.
HOMEEDVOICESPODCAST – EP 32 Naomi Fisher: Clinical Psycologist, Home Ed Parent and Author of Changing Our Minds
This week I’m chatting with Naomi Fisher, the author of Changing Our Minds: How Children Can Take Control of Their Own Learning. We talk about how home educated children related to their peers, the long process of deschooling, internal and external motivation, and supporting ADHD and autism in the home educating community.
There are definite barriers to home education, (needing to work outside the home to pay the bills, especially for single parent families, co-parenting with someone who refuses to support home education etc) but a lack of qualifications is not one of them.
HOME ED VOICES PODCAST – (SEASON 3) EPISODE 30 Mini Episode: “DON’T OVER PLAN THE FUN STUFF, (AND WHAT TO DO INSTEAD.)”
Over planning things that sound good but you won’t actually do, is a waste of time and makes you feel bad. (Ask me how I know this…) Here’s what I suggest you do instead.
We talk about her new book Extraordinary Parenting, about writing it during lockdown and about how it is a unique source of comfort and support for parents and home educators during this pandemic.
GIVEAWAY! For an chance to win a copy of the book, go to our instagram @homeedvoicespodcast.
This is episode 28 and this week I’m talking to Lorna from @2devonpixies_home_ed. We talked on the 17th March, as lockdown for the coronavirus was just starting, but before the school’s had closed, so that colours the whole conversation. However we also talk about tuff trays, the pedagogy of ‘give it a go’ and Lorna brings a fantastic book list that will keep you going through these strange days.
This week on the podcast, we are trying something different and doing a deep dive into what is going on for a home ed family right now, with a Day in the Life interview.
This week I’m talking to Daksina who now writes regularly for HomeEdVoices.co.uk. We talk about getting our heads around the idea that every education has gaps, and that is ok. We fangirl over the calming influence of Julie Bogart, and we talk all things gameschooling.
