Home Education

I would wish for everybody – irrespective of their age – to be granted the right to learn, grow and develop just the way he or she would like to – HOW, WHEN and WHERE!

For about 15 years, I have been enthusiastic about home education and learning naturally. I am the author of “Schulfrei : Lernen ohne Grenzen” and co-editor of “Wir sind so frei : Freilerner-Familien stellen sich vor“. Over the years, I have met wonderful people at home education gatherings in 12 different countries and had many enriching encounters. My son and I have developed the Schulfrei-Community as a networking platform for home educators.

 

 

Should you like to hear more about my thoughts and my experience in a personal encounter, I can offer you the following:

 

“Learning naturally!” – Presentation and conversation with Stefanie Mohsennia

“Schools as we know them are obsolete”
(Sugata Mitra)

What could a “learning 2.0” look like?
How would learning be more suitable to our human nature?
What would be a fertile ground for young people to learn and grow?

“Children are by nature smart, energetic, curious, eager to learn, and good at learning; they do not need to be bribed and bullied to learn; they learn best when they are happy, active, involved, and interested in what they are doing; they learn least, or not at all, when they are bored, threatened, humiliated, frightened..”
(John Holt, Freedom and beyond)

Book presentation “Wir sind so frei”

29 home-educating families from Germany, Austria and Switzerland opened their doors to us and deliver insight into their lives and their learning.

I read from some of the personal stories. Afterwards, there will be plenty of time to ask questions and chat.
