Educare con calma

On my podcast, “Educare con calma”, I talk about various topics, from Montessori to sustainability. Only in Italian!

Episode 3

La scuola uccide la creatività? Omaggio a Sir Ken Robinson

Il 21 agosto è morto Sir Ken Robinson, uno degli educatori che più ha influenzato il mio percorso nell'educazione dei bambini. Questo è il mio piccolo omaggio spontaneo a lui.

Il video di cui parlo qui è questo: Do Schools Kill Creativity? (potete scegliere i sottotitoli italiani)

Potete anche leggere un mio vecchio post sul blog con alcune riflessioni personali: La scuola uccide la creatività? e questo racconto di Helen Buckley che dà un esempio concreto di come effettivamente la scuola uccida la creatività (magari duro, ma per me fu necessario per aprire gli occhi).

Come appoggiare il podcast:

Io non faccio pubblicità e non accetto sponsor, perché le pubblicità mi danno fastidio e non voglio sottoporvi a più pubblicità di quelle che già vi sommergono nella vita quotidiana. Se vi piace il mio podcast e volete aiutarmi a mantenerlo vivo, potete acquistare uno dei miei corsi:

  • Educare a lungo termine: un corso online su come educare i nostri figli (e prima noi stessi) in maniera più consapevole. Tanti genitori mi dicono che gli ha cambiato la vita.
  • Co-schooling – educare a casa: un corso online su come affiancare il percorso scolastico per dare l’opportunità ai bambini di non perdere il loro naturale amore per il sapere.

The blog

I write mainly about Montessori, parenthood, and multilingualism. Here are some recent posts.

Mums, dads & kids
We don't know how to be parents, we learn it everyday as we go. This is my way of motherhood, the small victories and the bitter defeats, my inconvenient truths and the endless life lessons. And also all the baby products and toys we love the most.

Montessori
One day a few years ago my husband came home and said, "Why don't we put a mattress on the floor in the baby room? It'd be much more natural". "Never" was my reply. That's how our Montessori journey started. Since then we've been living, breathing and applying the philosophy at home day in and day out, starting from ourselves. Because educating children starts from the parents.

Living sustainably
Living sustainably for me doesn’t only mean to have a more eco-friendly lifestyle. It means to make decisions that are sustainable for our planet, the people on it, but also for our life, our lifestyle, and our happiness. It means to take any daily chance to evolve and be happier, healthier, kinder, more responsible and more caring human beings—the only sustainable way for a meaningful future.
