In Education I Trust. Do You?
I was inspired by some recent posts by Ted that you can read here:
I guess you are already used to me asking questions.
This is due, among other things, to the fact that I consider that I still have things to learn.
If I knew everything, I guess I wouldn’t have any more questions, right?
My reality is that the questions always go ahead of me and I advance behind them.
As I said before, sometimes I find answers, sometimes not. In addition, I answered a question in different ways, depending on the circumstances.
However, one thing is clear to me, namely that learning new things helps me better understand both what is and what could be(come).
I also discovered that it is very difficult, if not impossible, to learn without making mistakes.
Being able to talk about something does not mean that we know that something. We can also describe what we observe, but we don’t know yet.
For the reasons presented above, I am a big supporter of the concept of continuous learning, throughout life.
Related to Sociocracy For All, I am a big fan and supporter of “Communities of Practice” (CoP).
One of the “Communities of Practice” in which I have already participated and which I wish would not disappear is the CoP for Facilitators.
At the last meeting, only three people were present in total, me being one of them.
Andrew facilitated the meeting spontaneously and we, the three participants, agreed to meet on Jan. 17, 2023 to discuss the future of this community and how it could be best organized to give this community a wonderful continuation.
I use this opportunity to invite those interested in being part of or supporting this community, to take the time to be present on Jan. 17, 2023 at 17:00 UTC
I “opened my eyes” to sociocracy in this CoP for Facilitators and I am willing to do what depends on me to enliven it.
I am sure that your participation will be beneficial both for the mind and the heart.
Besides that, you will be able to acquire or perfect many sociocracy skills, this only if you don’t already know them all, of course.
Yes, many people are busy with the roles they have in the circles or organizations they belong to, but if you can take the time to participate at least from time to time, I think you won’t regret it.
because I care
p.s. Of course, there are other “Communities of Practice” as well. If I were invited, I would participate in all of them, one at a time, to broaden my awareness, to perfect my skills and to make new and authentic human connections. I think that people get to know each other better when they do things together, and “Communities of Practice” are excellent opportunities to get to know each other and to strengthen the human bonds between us. It would be my pleasure to meet you, wherever it may be. All the best!
