When reflecting on my ideas from my future learning space I looked into the six learning spaces. To be honest, I was unaware that there were even six learning spaces twelve weeks ago. It was so relevant and essential to learn about these spaces for both students and teachers becoming lifelong learners and to further improve students education and my teaching practices.
When doing my Future Learning Space, I was saddened by the real life situations in war-torn countries and the Refugee Camps such as Za’atari Refugee Camp. What these children and families have to endure each day, when it is not their fault or their doings. It could have been anyone of us born in that situation. As I was researching this I was asking myself, what can I do to help these children? How can I help?
Education is a basic human right. Education is needed to give people hope and dreams. To empower people and enable people a better life for themselves and their families. I know that whatever doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger, however when we are talking about little children who are born into these terrible situations it just doesn’t seem fair. They will be affected by this for the rest of their lives. People who are lucky enough to be educated and fight for an education are brave, courageous, inspiring and strong in their minds and in their hearts.
I have been amazed and inspired by what some organizations and young girls are doing for themselves and other refugee children. Some girls are fighting for their rights and turning away from some of their traditions such as getting married at a young age. They are looking and moving forwards into improving their lives. I know that some of the Syrian girls who have moved on to other countries are driven and passionate in going back to their homeland and rebuilding their homeland.
I have nothing ever to complaint about. I am just thankful that my children and family have such a wonderful life. I am inspired by these girls and organizations that help in these desperate times and if I can help in any way I will try.
Thank you for listening.
