[REBOL] Re: teaching rebol

From: amicom:sonic at: 31-Mar-2003 20:50

Oddly enough, I started teaching my 6-year-old son Rebol right before this thread got started. He is also homeschooled and is working at a very accelerated pace when compared to the norm (but it is his normal pace). I am teaching him raw Rebol. He chose the project he wants to work on and we work in the direction of that goal learning whatever needs to be learned along the way, including typing, spelling, using other applications to create graphics, etc., math, and yes, even some raw Rebol. In some circles, methods such as this are known as "unschooling," but I am not a proponent for "unschooling" as the sole means for learning. I am, however, very much in favor of teaching every child in the method best suited for that child. We have three children being homeschooled right now and they all learn best in different ways. I am very pleased and blessed to have a wife who is so willing and able to homeschool them. Bohdan "Bo" Lechnowsky Lechnowsky Technical Consulting At 01:47 PM 4/1/03 +1200, you wrote:
