Abstract/Notes: The emerging knowledge societies will – besides many other dramatic changes – see a teaching revolution. This paper seeks to propose quality standards for this new type of teaching. The paper argues that Peter Drucker experienced much of what he later came to call the principles of self management and effective knowledge work as a boy aged nine or ten at the Schwarzwald School – an utterly exceptional, progressive elementary school in Vienna. Given these astonishing similarities, this school's avant‐garde approach to teaching might just provide some insights into what effective teaching for a future knowledge society should be like. The paper is based to a large extent on accounts by and about the almost forgotten school's owner‐manager Eugenie Schwarzwald, some of which were made available only recently in the course of several biographical research projects dealing with this revolutionary pedagogue and social entrepreneur. Firstly, the paper identifies similarities between the teaching practice at Eugenie Schwarzwald's schools, her approach to leadership on the one hand, and Drucker's principles of effective management and knowledge work on the other. Secondly, it concludes that in a knowledge society both effective management and teaching need to be extensively individualised services – much more than in an industrial mass society. Combined, Schwarzwald's practice and Drucker's teachings challenge some seemingly up‐to‐date practices in both higher education and corporate personnel development, and helps in understanding what actually produces effective personal learning for the rapidly changing knowledge economies of the twenty‐first century. The paper introduces selective aspects of progressive education to the field of management.

Abstract/Notes: Kelly Johnson introduces a series of lessons that incorporate literacy, observation, botany, history, place studies, writing, and art, with a long-term eco-literacy goal of connectedness and a conservation ethic. Johnson's initial idea to use Beatrix Potter as a model in the Lower Elementary classroom came after extensively researching Potter's life as part of her graduate studies. Johnson begins the series of lessons by presenting "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," asking the students if they remember the story. The stories are amazingly versatile, and, by analyzing the writing, the students begin to see the tales as far more than nursery stories--they are animal character glimpses, human nature vignettes, pieces of visual art, and works of literary art. Johnson concludes that when children are allowed free time in nature, as Beatrix Potter was during her childhood summers, they build unbreakable bonds that influence their adult lifestyle choices.

Abstract/Notes: (00:00:00) Repòtaj sou jan moun ap viv nan mizè nan Batèy Mèje, yon batèy ayisyen nan zòn Bon Repo. Moun k ap abite Mèje dekri grangou, maladi, lanmò timoun (ki konn mouri pou maladi lèzòm ak maladi Bondye), ak move trètman patwon konn fè yo sibi. Travayè yo pa touche regilyèman, epi pafwa grangou fè yo manje kann, menm si yo ka arete yo pou sa. Dapre moun yo, abitasyon sa a te pou yon blan meriken ki rele "Mr. Hill" men kounye a se pou HASCO li ye. Sa se premye fwa yon radyo vin entèvyouve moun Mèje, 1988-09-06 (00:20:09) J.J. Dominique entèvyouve Peter Hesse sou edikasyon Montessori nan peyi d Ayiti, 1988-09-15|(00:00:00) Report on the horrendous living conditions at Batèy Merger, a Haitian batèy near Bon Repos. Residents of Batèy Merger describe hunger, disease, the deaths of children from both "maladi lèzòm" and "maladi Bondye" (diseases sent by others and natural diseases), and mistreatment by employers. Workers are paid irregularly, and hunger sometimes forces them to eat sugar cane, for which they can be arrested. According to speakers, the plantation was owned by an American named "Mr. Hill" who then passed ownership to HASCO. This is the first time a radio station has ever come to interview them, 1988-09-06 (00:20:09) J.J. Dominique interviews Peter Hesse about Montessori education in Haiti, 1988-09-15
