I’m Brian Mackenzie and have been unschooling my kids in London, Ontario since the first day mom’s mat leave ended and I said to myself, ‘Sure I can push him around in this stroller on errands, but what am I going to say to him?’.
Working as a video guy, I was able to film inside schools of all grade levels for a Speech and Language organization, I knew if I ever had kids, I wouldn’t be sending them to a school of any kind.
I am now a unicycling parent of 7 and 9yo unicycle riders.
2022 CONFERENCE SESSION
PAST CONFERENCE SESSIONS
SESSION: HOMESCHOOLING IN FIVE WORDS
As soon as I became a stay at home dad who was planning on homeschooling I thought, "Why wait until they are 'school age'?" If our version of education is going to be as fun as I think it is...wouldn't they want that fun already? Recommended for anyone concerned they might not be able to teach at home; I show you how easy it can really be.
SESSION: UNPRESCHOOL. WHY WAIT?
I'm a dad of a three and five year old who has been unschooling for four years. I discuss the benefits of starting 'unschool-thinking' as early as possible; incorporating fun, high energy videos from a variety of our many exciting 'edventures'. Topics include screen time, fitness, socializing, risks & pushing limits, STEAM, experiments, play, and the many ways you are able to combine any or all of them.
Trick scooters, skateparks, tricycles, a unicycle stroller, a slackline, tools, cooking, equipment, dinosaur toys, lego, hills, forests, swamps, computers, whiteboards, cameras, and even an indoor obstacle course...This is unPreschool. It's fun.
