CLCeducation is a social business working in the fields of education and culture.
Learning is a life-long process. CLCeducation proposes a wide of variety of courses and educational support for all the different stages of learning: from early childhood to adulthood.
Our goals are to help you learn and to (re)kindle your enthusiasm for learning.
enthusiasm of learning grows by making the learning experience either/and:
• relevant, as in meeting the needs of the individual within their financial and personal constraints.
• expansive, as in expanding the realm of possibilities and scope of knowledge for personal growth.
three areas of knowledge: savoir-faire, savoir, savoir-vivre
Savoir-faire (knowing how to do) covers the learning of skills which include:
• basic skills such as reading, writing, arithmetic, problem-solving...
• skills and competency in exercising a professional or recreational activity
Savoir (knowledge) covers what is known as general culture:
• basic or common understanding of a wide range of subjects
Nowadays we are seeing a specialization of knowledge earlier and earlier in the academic process.
On the contrary, a wide range of basic knowledge coupled with a nurturing of a person's innate curiosity and intelligence is necessary in order to make sense of the complex issues and problems facing our global society.
"Particularly today, when so many difficult and complex problems face the human species, the development of broad and powerful thinking is desperately needed."
Carl Sagan, Dragons of Eden.
Savoir-vivre (knowing how to live)
• manners, social etiquette, cultural mores and shared human values.
Savoir-vivre allows people to live in communities, build societies and share a culture.
"The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them is that of the determination of man’s place in Nature and his relation to the cosmos. Whence our race came, what sorts of limits are set to our power over us, to what goal we are striving, are the problems which present themselves afresh, with undiminished interest, to every human being born on earth."
TX Huxley, 1863.
perspective as angle (from one's perspective)
Each individual sees the world from a particular angle, through a personal lens constructed from their upbringing, experiences and desires. Each person judges new knowledge according to their needs and interests.
Each person feels free to express their points of view, to follow their creative impulses and to understand the motivations which underlie their actions.
perspective as vista (putting things into perspective)
To grow, a person broadens their horizon, coming into contact with other points of view, new ideas and new experiences. We see that our problems, our needs and our desires are similar to those of others.
perspective as future prospect
With more knowledge comes more opportunities for individual development and community building.
