We’re Going LIVE!

For the Love of Learning Show

Four members of the ASDE organizing team were recently interviewed on For the Love of Learning (ep#114). If you missed the live broadcast, you can now watch it on YouTube, here. Several topics were discussed, such as how the term Self-Directed Education describes many paths, including unschooling (26:10), and the nuances of supporting self-directed learners (49:06).

  • Difference Between Neglect and SDE“Sometimes I worry that letting my kids ‘do what they want’ all day is really just me being lazy and not having the discipline to sit them down and ‘make them learn’ (yes I know logically that’s ridiculous). I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts.”
  • Advocating in Your Community“Our SDE group advocates in our community by posting interesting things on Facebook, creating a place for youth to congregate and adults to get support, offering quarterly viewings of Class Dismissed, and having a library with books related to SDE. What is your group doing?”
