Hello Gertrud

I've just returned and was in Germany for three months....unfortunate timing.  Perhaps a skype call at some point.

Hello Katharine, 

if you are traveling in your 14 month leave, may be you will come to berlin some day, i would like to meet you, ore to come in contact with your idea to introduce AOH, practices and principles, to students. Its also  my habit and my toolbox in the process of working together with learner and teacher

Hello All

I work with a public school board in Canada. For the past 9 years I have used AOH practices in my work with school leaders to help them experience and then transfer into their schools, a more respectful, authentically engaging and intentional way of leading, learning and engaging.  AOH principles ground my consulting, coaching and facilitating with them, their staffs and community members.  As I return, after a 14 month leave, I will introduce AOH, practices and principles, to students, as a means of experiencing and helping to co-create civic citizenry.

Dear education-group.

In one month we will be hosting a training in Denmark focusing on the future of public schools. We will upload the harvest on this website:

It will all be in danish though, but I hope we can find time to create a english summary for this site too.

I will encourage you to check out the danish site also, it is already up and running :)

The closest learning theory that speaks to the AoH principals that I have found is Connectivism which integrates the principals explored by chaos, network complexity and self organisation. George Siemens wrote an excellent article called Connectivism: Learning and Knowledge Today

This might be interesting to get  involved in
