Knowledge Cafe and Free School

EOII’s Principles of Learning 

Knowledge Cafe

Everyone is welcome to join the knowledge cafe for fun and mixed discussions about a wide range of learning experiences. The Knowledge cafe is a improvised happening that anyone can host and find a place to meet up. We meet-up at cafes, libraries, homes and parks. Our mission is further the human experience, soul expression with the Art of Education.

A knowledge cafe is a means of bring a group of people together to have an open, creative conversation on a topic of mutual interest to share ideas and to gain a deeper collective understanding of the subject and the issues involved.

“Information only becomes knowledge in the hands of someone who knows what to do with it.” – Peter Drucker

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” “We do not learn from experience… … “Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.” – John Dewey
