The quest for learning begins!
Articles, interviews, research, reviews and debates to find a practical framework to help children learn anything effectively and playfully.
Friends, during the past four years I have been helping my kids learn all sort of different things and I became fascinated by how different their learning process is compared to adults.
In contrast, most of the learning methods I could find were instruction based, not well suited for young kids (2-10 years) or very specific to certain subjects.
So, I have decided to embark on a quest to explore how kids learn and find a practical framework to help them learn anything effectively and playfully.

"Learning is more than the acquisition of the ability to think; it is the acquisition of many specialized abilities for thinking about a variety of things." Lev S. Vygotsky
Where will this quest bring us?
Interviewing influential people in the children’s learning space: researchers, writers, teachers, coaches, tutors, nannies, entrepreneurs, artists and parents. Asking their opinion on specific learning behaviours and methods, creating an engaging and entertaining brainstorming like conversation.
Sharing articles based on my personal experience with children. The objective is to raise visibility and start debates on topics that haven’t been largely investigated, yet.
Testing, experimenting and reviewing some well known and less well known learning practices, methodologies and apps to measure how difficult and effective they really are.
Extrapolating practical tips from the work of some of the most well known figures in the learning space like John Dewey, Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, James Gibson, Maria Montessori but also from influential people in adjacent subjects like creativity, curiosity, intuition, and performance: Hans Eysenck, Ken Robinson, Richard Feynman, Mario Livio, Gary Klein, Michael Michalko…
