Homeschooling, Unschooling, & Free / Democratic / Non-traditional Learning
This is the Discussion Forum for those interested in continuing the conversation about La Educacíon Prohibida.
Description: The 'school' is more than 200 years old and is still considered our main access to education. Today, schools and education are widely discussed in academic forums, public policy, educational institutions, the media, and civil society. Since its inception, the school system has been characterized by structures and practices that are now considered largely obsolete and outdated. We believe that these practices do not suit the needs of the 21st century. School's main shortcoming lies in a design that does not consider the nature of learning, freedom of choice and the importance of love and human links in individual and collective development. Over the years, these reflections have given rise to proposals and practices that conceive of education differently. 'The Forbidden Education' is a documentary that seeks to recover many of them, explore their ideas and shed light on those experiences that have dared to change the structure of the educational model of the traditional school. More than 90 interviews with educators, scholars, professionals, authors, mothers and fathers; a tour of eight Latin American countries through 45 unconventional educational experiences; over 25,000 followers on social networks participating before its release, and a total of 704 co-producers in collective financing made 'The Forbidden Education' a unique phenomenon. This film is a completely independent project of unprecedented magnitude, which accounts for the latent need of growth and emergence of new forms of education.
Director Bio: German Doin has always been interested in the many forms of educational experience on his own path to free learning. His passion has always been language through film, which led him to combine both interests Forbidden Education. In 2009 the project started as a short Youtube, and ended with German taking charge of the research, script and realization of The Forbidden Education.
