Dvorak Day Four

I'm on day four of this magical adventure and I'm slowly becoming more capable.

I'm averaging around thirty words per minute now in the little typing program, but probably a bit less in real life. At least I don't want to kill myself when I type anymore. It's the little things in life, you know?

It has been really fascinating to learn a new skill, start from scratch, and watch my progress daily. One really interesting thing I've noticed is that my words per minute don't really go up during the day, even though it feels easier as I practice more throughout the day. However, when I wake up the next morning I am much faster.

Parents Learning With Their Unschoolers

On Unschoolery

By Leo Babauta

One of the beautiful things about unschooling is that the parents learn alongside their children.

This is truly amazing.

Consider this: in school, kids learn stuff, and the parents don't know anything about it for the most part (apart from a summary from the kid or teacher). The kid also just learns the material, not so much how to learn. And parents don't really learn how their kid learns either.

But with unschooling, it's a huge learning experiment that the kid and parent are doing together. There's no one to say, "This is what you need to learn, and this is how you'll do it." So as a result, the kid and parent have to figure these things out together.
