Ecology of learning

Ecology is working on reconnecting with what comes naturally in nature. The ecology of learning is working to regain the spontaneous disposition of the child. Artificial lessons, destructive competition and unnatural rhythms crush those natural assets in every child: this is being ignored in today’s world. The ecology of learning proposes a pedagogical degrowth, in order to be assumed in the future by the child and not from any preconceived concepts. The ecology of learning resigns from educational resources and uses instead the innate enthusiasm and playing ability of the child as the only fertilizer in the foreground (the modern neurobiology actually describes the effect of enthusiasm on the development of the brain with this exact word "fertilizer" - see menu item "fertilizer," the work of Prof. Dr. Gerald Hüther). Same as in other branches of ecology, the ecology of learning seeks to reestablish connection and trust in central place: because no sustainable development of society and its players - regardless of the type, race, color, or generation - should be conceived without these two elements.

The ecology of learning is a movement initiated by Andre Stern in 2012. He grew up unschooled and is now a father who is also unschooling his child. The movement is supported by the Institute Arno Stern (laboratory for observation and conservation of spontaneous disposition of the child).

Let's grow this movement together!
