Education 2030

Skills are the ability and capacity to carry out processes and be able to use one’s knowledge in a responsible way to achieve a goal. They involve mobilising knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to meet complex demands. The OECD Learning Compass 2030 distinguishes between three types of skills: cognitive and metacognitive skills; social and emotional skills; and practical and physical skills.

Our Pet Giant African Snail

We made a time lapse video while our pet snail was eating in the evening.

One of his favorite is Cucumber.

Giant African Snail – Eating Time lapse
We have been keeping a Giant African Snail as our pet. It’s name is ‘Johnny’. Johnny usually sleeps til 9pm and wakes up to eat. This is a time lapse of how much he eats at a single go. The whole video was about 1 hour and has been condensed to a 1.5minutes time lapse. Snails are on ‘vegetarian’ diet, one of his favorite is Cucumber. He gets a variety of vegetables ranging from lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, zucchini. We have to clean his terrarium once a week, changing his soiled habitat surrounded with 2 heat-mats to maintain an internal temperature of 25°C. It is important to note that snails need a humid and moist environment. For that either you can spray water from time to time (within the terrarium) to keep the moisture in its atmosphere. Or you can get an automatic pre-programmed Spray Pump that regularly ‘moisturises’ the enclosure within terrarium. For the development of its shell, you will also need to place a piece of calcium for it to consume. Watch a Snail pet CARE tips video here:

Achatina fulica is a species of large land snail that belongs in the family Achatinidae. It is also known as the African giant snail or giant African snail or giant African land snail. It shares the common name “giant African snail” with other species of snails such as Achatina achatina and Archachatina marginata.

If you are planning a family camping trip for the school holiday, here are some tips that will ensure your trip is both a kid-friendly and safe to make it a fun experience for everyone.

1.Pre-camping preparation
If you have small children, you may want to select a tent that will accommodate all if you comfortably. We bought a 4-men tent, there are only three of us: 2 adults and one 7-year old.

We also prep ourselves by getting some ideas on how to prepare for camping with kid/s.

2. Selecting a kid-friendly campsite
We are not so ready for a 100% forestry camping style yet. Depending upon whether you decide to “rough it” or choose a campsite that is close to amenities, you can find many kid-friendly camp sites in Estonia with reviews that can give you comprehensive information of the sites. Reviews can help you decide not only what equipment, clothing, and food you need to take, but the available hiking, cycling areas and points of interest as well.

With children, ensure that the campsite you select is an official campsite area. Moreover, when researching camping sites it’s a good idea to look for those areas that are on the high ground. Thus, if it rains, your tent and equipment will not become water logged.

3. Make a checklist
This is very important to not forget important items before you go on your camping trip. Jot down the items for your checklist. Some of the more important items you will need are:

Cooking equipment such as frying pan, pots, bucket, stove, bags for food storage (I used a thermal lunchbox), and cooking utensils (one wooden spoon, one spatula). In addition, food containers and canned goods are best. It is also recommended that you prepare meals at home and package them in containers for the trip. Also bring water, and a cooler.

Bring suitable clothing depending on the camp site you’re going to. Wearing thin layered clothes is a better idea when the weather is hot. Pack a sweater or jacket for you to wear at night in case it gets cold. Extra socks and even a sunhat. If you intend to engage in some cycling activities, proper cycling gears are necessary.
I rented a bicycle at site for one day, so we transported only our child’s bicycle in the car. I bought also a bicycle lock, an air compressor just in case.

Other essential items such as sleeping bags, tents, first aid kit, flashlights, cell phone, garbage bags, toiletries, sunscreen, ointments, a map of the area, insect repellent, games for the kids, and a foldable air mattress (and air step air pump).

4. Choose a proper area to pitch tents
Always choose a flat are where there are no rocks or stumps where the tent will be pitched. The majority of the popular campgrounds will post a signs at every suitable sites for you to pitch your tents. There will also be good-to-know notice board regarding specific animals and vegetation in the surrounding area. Check out this video tutorial on how to pitch a tent!

Language Immersion

Ever wanted to learn a language and realised that you need to be immersed in the country where that language is used to be able to learn the language?

My daughter have this problem for learning Chinese Mandarin, but not for English.

One reason is because while I was working on this ‘Learn by Doing!’ app, I was using the app so much that she picked it up (instinctly) to play with it. She was only 3 years old that time, but this app is designed for 5+. In any case, she was able to learn the beginner level, and one of the best feature of this immersion app is, that you can record your pronunciation, and also check your speaking skill!

Many people struggle to speak immediately because of shyness. This app is useful to allow you to practice listening to native speakers of the language (English, French and Spanish) as it is developed mainly for dual language learning classroom and school teachers.

Teachers mode helps teacher in managing the class at a glance. The graphics are great too. Best of all, you do not need the Internet to use it, just a once off download from the app store https://apps.apple.com/us/app/learn-by-doing-beginner/id1086273809

Draw What You Think The People Are Looking At

Yesterday’s #365daysofdrawing prompt is: Draw What Do You Think The People Are Looking At?

So this is my drawing. When I made this, it was sunset in Estonia at about 10:30pm. To me it didn’t seemed like sleeping time, it was more like evening time. As the people in the drawing prompt were looking upwards, I could have drawn something like the stars, meteor showers or a large strange creature totally fiction. The fourth person in the brown shorts seemed to be making a frown, I was thinking he might be disagreeing with the first person (whose in sandals). The first imagination was an amazing sunset that she was pointing at. She’s possibly the elder child and they seemed to be a family. The original drawing prompt was of a woman in horizontal stripe skirt holding the hand of a smaller girl. This place seemed to be somewhere in the southeast asia like Malaysia or Indonesia (maybe) because parents here don’t normally hold the kids’ hands when they’re outside. Since their hair color is dark brown, the Dad’s hair is a little reddish, I think this family could be bilingual or even trilingual.

What do you think they’re saying?
