Knowledge, Learning, Community
I can't read it, but making a splash in the Spanish speaking world is the release of the eBook Invisible Learning. Here's the PDF, in Spanish. But at least I can read the English version of the epilogue, written by Roger Schank. "Little children learn very well until they meet up with school and its arbitrary standards. They have experiences and they learn from them. The more varied their experiences, the more they can be said to know.... Not only does school ignore what we know about how human memory and learning work, it is also concerned with teaching subjects that have nothing to do with everyday life." See also this overview article, also in Spanish.
