Two months in our Taguig space and our second block presentation yielded a harvest of sorts: a classical guitar performance, a court case dramatization, a recent painting, making crepes and empanada for parents and visitors, and a documentary on Abot Tala that has gotten a lot of hits on FB since it’s been posted. The indie video was picked up, appropriately enough, by a site called EDIT – Education in Transformation.
‘Education in Transformation’ (EDIT) is a team of filmmakers whose mission it is to share stories from the Self-Directed Education movement.
We believe this paradigm shift in Education is a high leverage point for stepping into our potential as a human community.
Our role is to amplify a diverse set of voices from students, parents, and educators from around the world as they explore ways of learning that honour the uniqueness and autonomy of both the individual and the collective.
Our mission is to inspire more people to participate in this transformation by making visible that this change is possible and it is happening right now.
Some weeks before the presentation, Abot Tala teens made ice cream from scratch, took a pop-up class on rocking your resume and prepping for a job interview, took apart various donated appliances that the juniors can use to produce art in the future and said their farewells to a pair who were going back to regular school.
Here are the classes this August-September in Abot Tala. If you know somebody who is looking for an option outside of mainstream school or for a community of homeschoolers, unschoolers and mentors, please point them towards Tres Palmas, Taguig.
Their launchpad is waiting.
