Experimental Education

PRESENTED ON SEP 24, 2016
IN TAIPEI @ VOL 30

陳明秀分享自己學習就是從”實驗教育”開始,父母讓她從小在家自學,透過多國文化與語言學習,包括學書法等,但自學不是只在家學習,而是從旅遊、生活中學習,以及學滑冰、拍紀錄片與從事模特兒工作,進而在17歲就創辦滑雪學校,開啟人生的無限可能性。

Zosia Chen-Wernik shares that her own path of learning started from “experimental education”. Her parents let her conduct self-study at home as a child.  She learned about other cultures and languages, as well as such skills as calligraphy. But, self-study was not only confined to studying at home.  Instead, the process of learning also came from travelling and daily life, as well as from ice skating, making documentary films, and engaging in modelling work. Then, at the age of 17, she founded a skiing school, which opened up unlimited possibilities for her life.
