我发现豆豆贝尔肖的博客和播客昨晚， //teaching.mrbelshaw.co.uk, and was delighted to read the thoughts of a kindred spirit when it comes to 学习, teaching, 和 student engagement. Doug is reading John Holt’s book “我该怎么办星期一？” and has posted both quotations and reflections to his 博客 as both text 和 audio 播客s. I heartily c上cur with 从道格这些意见:
We suffer from poverty in the world of 教育: our conception of what learning actually looks like is woefully inadequate. It’s easy to talk of ‘engagement’, ‘accelerated learning’, etc. without really getting to the nub of the matter. Learning isn’t something that people do in a 课堂 when sitting at desks. It’s perhaps one way and one situation where some 学习 might occur on some occasi上s. But it’s not the be-all and end-all – 和 we shouldn’t forget that.
I have only read excerpts of Holt’s book “Why Children Fail,” but his ideas in “What Do I Do Monday” fall right in line with what I read previously. Doug includes in his post the following from Holt’s intro to his book, which is right 上 target:
For years, like many people, I thought of learning as collecting facts or ideas. It was something like eating, or being given medicine, or getting an injection at the doctor’s. But from my own experience, and that of children, and from books, I have come to see 学习 very differently, as a kind of growing, a moving and exp和ing of the pers上 into the world around him.
这让我想起的 什么schlecty中心讲授学习: You can’t force kids to learn, you can only invite them to. Hopefully I’ll make time in the weeks ahead to read more from both John Holt and 道格·贝尔肖. Doug has generously 播客ed several posts, including the 上e above about Holt 和 第二反射。感谢分享，道格！
In additi上 to liking Doug’s ideas about 教育 和 学习, I also like his WordPress theme: 3K2! I need to move my 博客 over to a new server that my current ISP has activated 和 upgrade to WordPress 2– when I do I’ll probably experiment with using the 3K2 theme as well. I like the tabbed links at the top of the page, which can be customized. Doug also has integrated 很酷的功能像帖子的动态“活档案” including a tag cloud, and a way to explore via a chronology of posts, a folksonomy of posts, 和 a tax上omy of posts. Very cool.
Lastly, Doug has a dry wit that I 应用reciate. As an example, here is how he describes his 教育al background 和 current activities, 上 他对页:
Aside from his full-time role as International Man of Mystery, 道格·贝尔肖 currently moonlights as a long-term supply teacher at a school in Nottinghamshire. As of September 2006 he will be working as a Teacher of History at a very successful 学校 in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. He began his teaching career in 2004 as a History teacher at a large comprehensive in Nottinghamshire, England. In 2003 he managed to con the University of Durham into letting him put on a gown and mince around the cathedral to pick up an MA in Modern History and then, inexplicably, tricked them into giving him a licence to teach in 2004. Before this, in 2002, whilst hanging around Sheffield University in an attempt to grow a goatee, he was mistaken for a student and the resulting mix-up allowed him to gain a BA in Philosophy (2:1). Somewhat foolishly, perhaps, he has undertaken an Ed.D (Doctorate in Education) through Durham University, as some上e there seems to underst和 what he is talking about (most of the time).
