shoeless learning spaces

shoeless learning spaces | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Let us start with a clear disclaimer: nobody knows why this works, although there are many hypothesies. On the other hand it does work astonishingly well: better learning, better behaviour and more (see below). So what do we know about shoeless learning today?

It probably started on mass in Scandinavia where many children learn with their shoes off. The weather - snow, ice, slush - led them to need outdoor shoes and boots for walking to and from home and these got left at the school door on arrival; hence their initial foray into shoelessness. Today, in very many schools worldwide, across all age ranges, shoeless learning has taken off, despite what is usually initial scepticism ("you asked them to do what?"!). Let us explore why...

Thanks! You mean collaborating on Scoop.it or on Flipboard? (it's possible there)

Maybe we can collaborate on a "apps" channel. But I really don't have much time and I wouldn't have the time to write such great insightful comments as you write all the time :( But I'm interested in working with you on a channel.

Cristoph, thanks for your prompt and generous response. I meant only to congratulate you. (By the way: also Scoop.it allows to invite contributors to a channel).
