We spent a wonderful morning exploring the concept of unschooling at the American Philosophical Association meeting last weekend in Kansas City! The presentations focused on the role of philosophical practices—notably Philosophy for Children and story circle pedagogy—in learner-driven educational environments, as part of the regular panels hosted by the Committee on Pre-College Instruction in Philosophy. We invited participants to think back to a time in their lives when they felt school got in the way of their learning. Emerging themes included the issue of incentives and assessment, the tensions between learner and teacher motivations, in-the-moment realizations versus awareness in retrospect, and our tendency to focus on school as the main locus of learning experiences. Big thanks to our panelists Dr. David Kennedy from the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children at Montclair State, Dr. Jessie Dern-Sisco from Villanova University, Dr. Roy Cook and Alice Cook from the University of Minnesota's Philosophy Camp, and Brila's director Natalie Fletcher!

Nous avons passé un agréable avant-midi à explorer le concept du "unschooling" au colloque de l'Association philosophique américaine le week-end dernier à Kansas City! Les présentations ont porté sur le rôle des pratiques philosophiques – notamment la Philosophie pour enfants et la pédagogie des cercles d'histoire – dans des environnements éducatifs axés sur l'élève, dans le cadre des réunions organisées régulièrement par le Comité sur l'enseignement de la philosophie au pré-collégial. Nous avons invité les participants à réfléchir à un moment dans leur vie quand leur apprentissage a été brimé par l'école. Parmi les thèmes émergents, mentionnons la question des incitatifs et des évaluations, les tensions entre les motivations des élèves et des enseignants, les réalisations instantanées versus la conscience rétrospective et notre tendance à voir l'école comme le lieu principal des expériences d'apprentissage. Nous remercions nos conférenciers David Kennedy de l'Institut pour l'avancement de la philosophie pour enfants, Jessie Dern-Sisco de l'Université Villanova, Roy Cook et Alice Cook du Camp de Philosophie de l'Université du Minnesota, et Natalie Fletcher de Brila!
