SUMMARY OF THE DAY
Read in Lithuanian here
As the second day of the event flew by, the participants got involved in the ways of the art of hosting more. From the early morning the teachings, stories, and discussions all got wrapped into a roll of mutual understanding.
First session started with Laura Weisel sharing her story of stepping into this new and unexplored field of participatory learning. Among everything, Laura pointed out that she learned things that were being implemented in the U.S. from a European. This only showed the power of networking and stepping out of the comfort zone (comfort zone being one‘s own country in this case).
Later on the participants shared their experiences concerning the main breaking points in education from their personal points of view. Events such as the downfall of the Soviet Union or the Reform of the educational system in Lithuania got highlighted.
Afterwards Aurimas Ražanauskas and Diederick Bosscha acquainted the participants with a schematic representation of the traditional and non-formal educational systems, curving between the axes of time and success. The diagram got the participants into feisty discussions about where the sine curves could lead and about the personal roles everyone saw themselves in.
The World Café task united the participants once again to share their opinions on the differences and common grounds between concepts of learning and education. Various charts and other graphic representations were harvested during this session. People got very creative in visualizing the perfect system which could cater everyone’s needs.
In the whim of people drinking coffee, sitting on the ground and talking, working in various spaces, participants from around the world got to know each other and, most importantly, themselves better. Next up was the third day.
