Education of the future In a typical classroom in Finland, students work in small groups. The teacher nurtures independence and active learning, allowing them to develop skills to understand and solve problems. “You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. There is a strong emphasis on relaxed schools that nurture creativity, questioning and in-depth subject analysis - Natasa Pantovic (Kahlil Gibran, On Children) We cannot aim to prepare our children for the careers of the future. The education of the future is much more challenging, shifting further away from ‘spelling and formulas’ towards the development of cognitive thinking where children are given tools to develop their own world, when their time comes. Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Google, to name just a few, all started as small companies made up of a few people with an idea, a talent, and motivation to innovate. So, what are the lessons we could learn from the Finnish educational model?

Conscious Parenting: Google Books Reviews Ivana is Mgr. of Education with the Masters in Special Needs Education. She has 20 years of experience working with kids and exploring the world of conscious parenting. Message from Ivana 'Dear Parents, Future Parents, Spiritual Researchers,After many years that I've spent examining and studying children’s psychology and exploring the wonders of pedagogy some essential questions kept following me and inspiring my journey:- Is there such a thing as an ideal parent and an ideal growing environment for our children? I believe the answer to them, is within our eternal search, within our self-development journey and spiritual growth and development and within our constant effort to become more conscious.Children need LOVE, unconditional, fully expressed, real LOVE. Nataša Pantović Nuit has a BSc in Economics.
Create freedom in the learning environment Allow your child to cook, wash dishes, and take care of plants and animals. These activities are extremely interesting for children because they can act as grown-ups. A child has a deep longing to discover that the world is based on truth. Respect that longing. In our attempt to help children grow into inspired adults, we wish them to carry the youthfulness of their souls and the wonders of childhood into their old age. Rudolf Steiner once said: “The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility – these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education.” By exploring, experiencing and imitating the world of grown-ups through free play, children are given a chance to unconsciously learn and emotionally mature through their own games. Too much of today’s learning is structured: children are directed, instructed and carefully followed at all times, so they do not have a chance to experience learning through unobstructed observation. Play with your child.
Shifting education goals Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view. One of the biggest problems of education today is that the ‘factory model’ of teaching: the top-down approach and the rewards-and-punishments approach, limit students’ ability to contribute with their imagination and creativity. In the Finnish educational model, active learning is taken seriously. - Natasa Pantovic The system needs a shift in focus: from one that teaches children a curriculum, to the one that inspires lifelong learning. Both Waldorf and Montessori learning methods establish a collaborative environment without tests, with the child’s learning and creativity at the centre of the focus. Some students who experienced such schooling went on to launch revolutionary business models. Larry Page and Sergei Brin, both ex-Montessori students, launched Google. Their schools are an extension of their homes.
Divergent thinking Musicians are more likely to use both hemispheres of their brain and more likely to use divergent thinking in their thought processes. Divergent thinking is essential for creativity. It is the ability to see lots of possible ways to interpret a question and lots of possible answers to it. It is important to vary thought processes so that children use both convergent and divergent thinking - Natasa Pantovic It is a thought process used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possibilities. Divergent thinking is often used as a parallel of convergent thinking that follows a particular set of logical steps to arrive at one solution. In their book Breakpoint and Beyond, George Land and Beth Jarman describe a longitudinal study they conducted on 1,600 kindergarden children aged three to five. Five years later, they re-tested the same children, now aged eight to 10 and only 32 per cent scored in the creative genius category. An average person would have 10 to 15 answers to this question.
Inspired or lost in the technology matrix? The many ‘entertainment’ options phones give us distort our ability to connect with people right next to us. We live surrounded by an increasingly complex matrix of impulses (transmitted via TV, media and the internet) that allow strangers of all sorts to interfere in our mental, emotional and spiritual development. Understanding this intricate network and how the human brain interacts with it is becoming our door to happiness and health. Our interaction with the Net, with TV and with computers has replaced our interaction with nature which in its magical way nurtures our cognitive,emotional, physical and psychological well-being The self or the personality is a bundle of socially-influenced traits that emerges and is formed gradually. A great deal is known about the links between our behaviour and TV, and between our emotions and computer games, because there have been thousands of studies on these subjects. Most of the studies found that there is a link. www.artof4elements.com
Big Study: Vaccinated Kids 2-5 More Diseases Than Unvaccinated Preventable Vaccine-induced Diseases A German study released in September 2011 of about 8000 UNVACCINATED children, newborn to 19 years, show vaccinated children have at least 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children. The results are presented in the bar chart below; the complete data and study results are here. The data was collected from parents with vaccine-free children via an internet questionnaire by vaccineinjury.info and Andreas Bachmair, a German classical homeopathic practitioner. No study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted in the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations (now over 50 doses of 14 vaccines given before kindergarten, 26 doses in the first year). The comparisons of the health of vaccine-free children with the health statistics of the general population are the same as comparing unvaccinated with vaccinated. Salzburger Study Result:
