    This wee was pretty amazing. After a long, two-day, slow and snowy drive to NYC from Charlotte over the weekend, I was glad to be here with so many of my friends. I loved having @nancy @charlotte @libby @tinocraft44 and Ziva all here at ALC NYC.

  • So, yesterday me, @libby (my BFF), @Alonalearning, @Tessa, and @Sassygirl26,  all went to visit The Green School. In this post, I will write things the same, things I like, and things I don’t  really like about the school. First I will write the things I like.

    Pet cat fish
    Pet guinea pigs
    Had woods
    Taped trees with sticky stuff to catch bugs

    Now, the things that are the same:

    Kanbans
    Go to small groups
    Have meetings all together

    Now, the things I don’t really like:

    Have to do math, reading and writing before going outside and having lunch
    5 min. timer for snack time.  (It’s not even good to eat your food fast)
    In the morning they always go on a meditation walk, you have to be quiet in the meditation walk in the woods.

    I met with @Libby @Animalfreak9 @Gabe @Alonalearning @Sassygirl26 @Tessao and I met to discuss language club.

    I noticed @Libby and @Animalfreak9 are really busy with other interests and also recognize that it’s important to remember that all people can ebb and flow in and out of deep learning. @Charlotte has been thinking about how to create a…[Read more]

    Greetings ALC Universe. Many new and exciting happenings at ALC Mosaic this week.

     
    Highlights:

    Veterans Day with Dan!

    -November 11th was Veterans Day and Dan came ready in uniform to share with the students his experience as a Veteran. We learned many cool things like How astronauts shower in space. In case you didn’t know this is how they do it.

    danveteransday
    We love Dan!

    Since August @libby and @animalfreak9 have had the goal to Skateboard standing up. And now they’re doing it!!

    ElishaSkateboard

     

    We had morning work out three out of five days this week. Feeling pretty ripped. Andrew planked for FOUR MINUTES! Tessa maintained the splits for ELEVEN MINUTES. I am taking this push-up challenge. We choose our own exercises and we have been pulling inspiration from this website. Here is one of our favorites:

    superplank-workout

    Geoguessr UPGRADE! Keeping up with Milo’s suggestion, we now take only 5 minutes per guess. Definitely increased the stakes of this challenge. Check out this map of the places we’ve been. Click on the pins to learn more about the areas! If you want to add to it, just request an invite from any of the ALC Facilitators.

     

    I FINALLY traded @zelda my Thunderous EX card. @zelda is slowly curating a formidable Pokemon collection. @alobob, with his superior knowledge of the cards and their face value, facilitated the trade. I forget what I traded for… but the experience was very professional.

    Liam‘s visit and the makey makey.

    -Such a pleasure to see Liam from Asheville on Thursday. He brought with him (along with just general awesomeness) a makey makey. He and some folks spent the morning turning anything and everything into a button. ALC Mosaic was so inspired by this device that we are now scheming ways to hook it up to the door so that THIS will play to remind us to move our name tags!

     

    Tai Chi! On Wednesday, @zelda led a Tai Chi class outside in the afternoon. The class was well attended and @sassygirl26 became an apprentice to @zelda. Thank you @zelda for this incredible offering that was masterfully led and scheduled.

     

    In Ecology Club we set learning goals for our time together. We want to learn about different trees and their uses (inspired by Warrior Cats)

    -We want to learn about birds through birding, and animals through tracking. Hopefully we will get some snow!

    -As we were talking two hawks were circling overhead and calling. As usual!

     @libby‘s Upgraded Kanban, with customized sticky holder, pen holder and labels.

    Libertykanban
    From @libby‘s Kanban, to @dthomasson‘s stories, to @zelda‘s offering, each of these experiences draw me back to the mullings: What is Agile Learning? And why is it important?
    These question have come to me many times. In their most recent form, on Friday when @dthomasson and I attended a science educator meet-up at Zada Janes.
    The meetup is for science, math, engineering and tech folks, and any other like-minded parties. Some are tied to the federal STEM initiative and others work for non and for profit entities invested in education.
    The go-around prompt “What was you first STEM moment?” got the group to share stories of the powerful moments in their childhood, where they experienced the foundations of STEM and what it means for their practice.
    A trend echoed throughout their responses. Each person reflected moments where they had the freedom to explore, and engage in relationship with people or the environment. The memories shared resembled every moment in an ALC.
    One man spoke of when he was able to solder a hearing aid with his father under a microscope. “It was so cool” he said, the experience had a significant impact on him.
    I think of our parents and facilitators and how we recognize the value, and have the courage to name these moments as learning. Almost every educator in the room could reflect the moments as children where they had the freedom to experience what ALCs hold for each and every day.
    I always come back to @nancy‘s What IF. When she asked one year ago, “What IF more children were happy and in a state of flow?” I am grateful to be a part of the answer as it evolves with us.

    Today @Alonalearning and I practiced Duolingo together and then both found stories online to help us further our language practice.

    I found some great videos on youtube that tell stories in Spanish with animation and subtitles – they are perfect for where me and @Libby are comprehension wise. I am going to post a few links here so I don’t forget…[Read more]
