One idea I am just having is to suggest readings that we feel are a part of our “juice” in this movement.
I would also like to explore and share readings that touch on subjects that come up in our school, like choosing to use minecraft and pokemon and the awesome these tools can create. Or read @abby’s dr.who marathon post to see an awesome example of this at work. Sourcesthat support our philosophy through evidence and example available in our minds and reflections on our website could be really helpful for communications with parent, and interested people. Also we can share example forum discussions about such topics for the tools we share with new ALC’s.
Maybe we can each take a look at the ALF resource list and pick our faves from that.
I like this idea. Dean and I were jamming on a similar one in the car home. We were thinking about how powerful a post high-school detox center slash pre-deciding what to do in life program like this would really serve the 16-20 year old population. Not quite YAALFing but it would be interesting to maybe have Tomis’s idea of YAALFING in this environment. Ok so now that I indulged the not on topic part of my comment I will move to the on topic section.
I see what you’re pointing to Tomis and even see in many ways current students stepping into that role. (Alona) Some things to discuss now would be to identify current students really embodying the practice and grow the role with them.
