Revolutionize our education system (0-18 year olds)
ven. 1 mars à 20:00
If you were given unlimited power and resources to revolutionize our educational system (kindergarden, primary and secondary school), what are some of your ideas? How was your own education experience? Good things, bad things? Tell us about the lousy teachers you experienced, and the ones that had a big positive impact on you. Etc. As a conversation starter, I'll probably start off to make the case for language immersion from kindergarten, so we can free up some valuable hours later on. LOCATION: The cosy pub Bier Central, very close to Central Station. Look for the guy wairing a red-white striped pullover. If you can't find me, call[masked]. ------------------------------ PLEASE read the group description to know what this group is (not) about: https://www.meetup.com/nl-NL/discussion-based-on-realistic-worldview/ For optimal group talk, places are limited to 8 spots. Because of that:
PLEASE set yourself to ATTEND if you plan to attend (if no-one sets themselves to attend, I will cancel it last minute. If at least one person sets themselves to attend, I’ll be there and we’ll make it a night to remember, whololooo).
PLEASE do attend if you have set yourself to attend.
If something comes up and you can’t make it, please set yourself to NOT attend. If last minute, I appreciate an sms[masked] I have planned a bunch of subjects that interest me, each about two weeks apart. Choose the subjects that interest you. I’ll start each subject with a little intro and some reflections on it, which will serve as the conversation starter. Purposes are to get to know random people (with a "realistic world view", read my definition in group description here: https://www.meetup.com/nl-NL/discussion-based-on-realistic-worldview/ ), while sharing stories around interesting subjects, and learning a thing or two about that subject and perspectives other than your own. Usually planned on Wednesday and Fridays (the latter for subjects that have more of a tendency to last well into the night. Of course, if mood and carpeDiem demands it, we can wrap it up at a certain point and see what adventures the city has to offer). Tip: take a few moments of reflection beforehand to gather your thoughts (on the toilet, bus,…) and write some things down around the subject (some subjects demand this more than others). Try to add something of value. Anybody always has something of value to add, but they don’t always know it. E.g. if we talk about dreams, and you almost never dream, that is actually an interesting nugget to share. Also feel free to bring accessories around the subject at hand. This project cannot succeed without your enthousiasm! Like anything in this world, really.
