Miro and I receive a constant stream of questions from our readers, and more than half of them are directed at Miro. We talk about many things on this blog, from long-term family travel, archeology, Peru, inspiration, how we make a living and of course, natural learning (unschooling). The majority of the questions aimed at Miro are in refernce to his education. So along those lines, we decided to create a feature called “Ask a Traveling Teen Unschooler”.
I know the label “unschooling” is off-putting for many, but there really isn’t one word that describes our approach to education. We do employ the values of unschooling, which included self-guided-interest-led learning pursuits, but I have to add, Miro’s education includes another level than just that.
Travel is unique for anyone, and especially the natural learner. Even when the learner’s interests do not guide the learning, by virtue of providing new stimulus in terms of geography, culture, traditions and customs, one “learns” through engagement.
So, as I said above, we decided to launch a feature this month, called “Ask a Traveling Teen Unschooler”.
Do you have questions specifically about natural leaning through travel as a legitimate form of education? He invites you to submit your questions. Please either leave your questions in the comments box of this post, or sent them to us directly at hello [at] raisingmiro.com
