This reader is published as a collaboration between the German Waldorf School Association and “Aktion mündige Schule” (AmS). AmS campaigns for freedom in education and in 1995 initiated the first popular initiative “Schools in freedom” (www.freie-schule.de); it subsequently supported the initiatives of the same name in Berlin and Brandenburg.
Waldorf education very deliberately makes use of the opportunities offered by the different periods of life and developmental phases which young people pass through in the course of growing up. Accordingly the curriculum is an artistic synthesis which is constantly developing; but at the same time it also watches out to discover new skills and strengths which each pupil can acquire in the course of their schooling by various means. It is the purpose of this publication to show that Waldorf education can contribute crucial perspectives for the development of a development oriented media education.
