On discussing deep topics with young children

"Children are not the people of tomorrow, but people today. They are entitled to be taken seriously. They have a right to be treated by adults with tenderness and respect, as equals." - Janusz Korczak.

El timo de las TIC en el aula. Parte I

Todo aprendizaje es tiempo de clausura (interiorización), y de apertura social presencial-virtual (exteriorización). Aquella tecnología que no pueda acompañar al aprendiz en cualquier momento y por los parajes de los tres espacios: uno privado-entrañable, otro social-compartido (presencial y virtual) carece de sentido. CONTINÚA>>>

Hands on the Wheel

My little girl, now thirteen months old, astonishes me every day with her rapidly developing communication skills, and her mobility - she has gone from slow crawling to pushing her wheelie-bug around the house with abandon in what seems like the blink of…

Bahasa Bahasa

Since learning to speak a language myself, I've valued the role of languages in schools. One of the most life-changing periods of my life was when I went to live in the city of Perugia as a part of my PhD studies in 2000-2001. Immersed in Italian language, I went from knowing a few words to becoming close to fluent in three months. It was an astonishing transformation, one…

New-Old Program gets new Life...

G'day Friends of Global Education...

I am happy to let you know that I have been appointed as the new Director of the Silicon Valley Centre for Global Education here at San Jose State University.  The Centre had a distinct "immigration" flavour to it for a short while, but we are going to take it even further with new faculty incentive grants, student incentive grants, a slew of seminars and will be incorporating social media throughout.  If I can ever help you - just give me…
