GIE Online Summit
AERO is a primary networker of educational alternatives around the world. It helps people find alternatives for their children, in which to teach, and also helps people start new alternatives. It has an online bookstore, does consultations, and has an online course for school starters. It hosts an annual conference in various locations. The 12th annual Alternative Education Resource Organization conference aims each year (and succeeds!) in highlighting the education revolution with their goal to help create an education revolution to empower all students and to make learner-centered education available to everyone. The keynote speakers this year: Sugata Mitra, Deborah Meier, Zoe Weil, Yaacov Hecht, and Amy Valens. This conference is now my must-attend event each year. As always, they will have many workshops that explore and demonstrate effective programs in educational alternatives, which includes any learner-centered approach, such as home education, Montessori education, Waldorf education, democratic Education, progressive education, charter schools, magnet schools, etc. I'll be speaking on the history of education, propaganda, and power and control. You can find more information at the conference website, and download the Conference flyer here.
See you online!
