A great show with some invaluable lessons and food for thought! I've taught for over 30yrs and trained teachers at the university level. This is a great video to show to prospective teachers just to get the discussion going about methods and learning experiences. The most poignant line was the Irish teacher who felt restricted after seeing the freedom in schools without State testing, "I realize now I'm just a facilitator" Really enjoyed this insight into European schools. I've visited schools in Europe years ago as part of my training, but things have really changed!
This was extremely interesting and very enlightening and specific. It was not silly or spectacular, just honest, sincere. Worth watching if you are interested in teenagers becoming self reliant and/or educational policy focused on wholistic learning.
