Leonard and Gertrude

Johann Pestalozzi, Internet Archive, Aug 09, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As part of the discussion around edupunk on iDC, Phoebe Moore writes, "I recommend Johann Pestalozzi's 1895 book Leonard and Gertrude, particularly the sections on 'Gertrude's method of instruction', 'The organisation of a new school', and 'A good pastor and schoolmaster: the opening of a new era'. The history of alternative education forms and methods is fascinating. Pestalozzi was extremely influential with his ideas on 'learning by doing'." Maybe, but I wouldn't exactly endorse what I read in Pestalozzi. Do note that the download is a 13 megabyte PDF of page scans.
