Real or Fake?

“Tia Cruz, where are you?”

“At school still” (8 pm)

“Oh…are you at you real class or fake class?”

“Huh, what do you mean Deborah…? I’m at the university…in class.”

“I know…but are you on the computer class or the real one.”

“I’m at the school you visit with me.”

“Oooooh (chuckle) I thought you at home on your computer…I want to go over.”

Truth being said, life is full of real classes.  Teachers, learners, community members and the environment are all agents of learning and share that very role.  There are no “fake” classes as all of our experiences can be viewed in a transformative way.  Those surreal situations can still teach us something if we reflect on them.  AFA’s creative dialogue demonstrates that learning in school settings can have a powerful impact at home.  Some lessons in life are easier than others.  Some teach us.  Some, we teach and learn how to teach.  Other lessons serve as platforms for future information we will need and they are stored in our head waiting to serve as a resource.
