The New and Improved, Updated (and enhanced with Technicolor) List of Farm-Fresh, Free-Range, Fair-Trade HOMESCHOOLERS ON STEEMIT

in homeschooling •  2 years ago 

I hope that Steemit continues to evolve to a forum for serious exchange of ideas around homeschooling and education. I’ve been seeing some great articles and enjoy the community that is sprouting.


A few highlights this week:

Unschool Your Children While Using Curriculum by @texasboys - A review of and some reflection on why unschooling can incorporate a "boxed" curriculum. Written by a parent with deep experience in schooling various levels of kids.

Considering home school? Why it was the right choice for us by @flusterfarm. Highlights the flexibility, one-on-one instruction, less screen time and applied learning that has made their schooling successful.

I have compiled a list of members that are writing about homeschooling. It’s a big umbrella- I mean this to include anyone who is schooling outside of an institutional setting, encompassing unschooling, roadschooling, co-op online education or some combination of methods.

Here’s the list - with distinguishing features highlighted, when they have been apparent. Please correct me and add to this! I will update this frequently. I encourage you to follow many (most! all!) of the people on this list so that we can cultivate great dialogue!

Awesome list! We're honored to be on it. We love unschooling and sharing our journey. We're life-long learners and we are so happy to see so many others on the list we can connect with and learn from. Thanks for creating it!

Thank you for compiling this list. I resteemed it, partially so I'd have it my blog so that I can come back to it for reference.

My wife may join steemit and write about our #homeschool experience. I will probably also post about our children's learning, especially on their experience and progress learning to program.

My wife @ch4nel just joined Steemit and one of her posting topics is homeschooling. Here's her introduceyourself post.

I am way beyond having school age kids but I do enjoy the posts from many of the people on this list. I agree with @misslasvegas:
The beautiful thing about home schooling is that not only the children learn, but it's a great learning curve for us parents as well.

The intelligence of those parents who are stimulated by homeschooling share their stories and ideas with us, thereby passing on their original and exciting experiences to us.

Awesome list. I just joined Steemit, but I've been home/unschooling my kids for a decade now, and writing about it at and other places.

I founded a company based on the self-directed learning philosophy as well!

@beriberi could you possibly resteem this post- I tried to resteem it but because it's 7 months old, maybe I can't due to a time limit. I would really like to keep this list relevant for my own group on home/unschoolers :D

Wow, what an honour to be mentioned here @beriberi :) Thank you for the kind words! Homeschoolers/Unschoolers/Worldschoolers somehow seem to find each other everywhere, because a lot of the people you mention are already on my list of people to follow. But this is a great list to go through and learn with and from others. The beautiful thing about home schooling is that not only the children learn, but it's a great learning curve for us parents as well. Never a dull day! Looking forward to meet more homeschool people. It's great company to be in.

Thank you for the list - I have also added 2 worksheets on steemiteducation - I think it is wonderful that people look into homeschooling

So glad to see the homeschool/homestead community growing on Steemit! Thanks @beriberi for the update. Resteemed :)
