Speaking a 100 and more languages as we convey who we are. (Shout out to Loris Malaguzzi of Reggio Emilia)
We figuratively and literally have so many ways of learning which brings me to the questions:
How are we learning?
How are we approaching teaching?
What are the standards?
Where did they come from?
Who created the standards?
When were they created?
Why were they created?
How can we change and adapt to where we are now?
We need more than standard(s) ways of being when it comes to learning.
We need connection, relationships and collaboration most. Most of all—keeping an authentic identity and not trying to sound like anyone else but ourselves.
When someone asks me where I’m from, I’m proud and I tell them. When someone asks you where you’re from—be proud of that and tell them.
Then build on from that.
This also brings up unlearning past habits.
Time to unravel and relinquish “standards”.
Time to be ourselves. Our best selves.
—whoever that may be and whoever you are in a process of becoming. We’re all waiting.
