How do I set up a Self Organised Learning Environment for Home Educated Children in different geographic locations.
How do I set up a Self Organised Learning Environment (SOLE) for Home Educated Children in different geographic locations? We are based in the UK.
I have two home educated children and would like them to collaborate with other home educated children following the principles of SOLE
I would like them to be able to experience the joy of collaborating with other children to find answers to certain questions or explore topics that interest them.
I would like them to be free to choose a topic - ie 'Dinosaurs' and to find other children who are also exploring that topic. I would like them to be able to
1)'talk' or video conference with other children interested in that topic
2)choose to share information and research findings with other children interested in that topic
3) Ask out side contributors - ie family and friends to contribute with ideas on their chosen topic
4) Capture their learning objectives - research results and outcomes
Does anything already exist for this? Obviously it would have to be moderated.
Any brainstorming or ideas and suggestions would be very much appreciated.
