Jackson Fischer-Diotte is a 2020 college graduate of SUNY Purchase with a degree in literature. He is a simple person with simple passions, fueled by a very simple impulse to create. Most of his time is spent with books, or else experimenting with unfamiliar forms of expression: painting, music, podcasting, even fashion. He has spent the months since graduating in May enjoying all the reading and writing for which the pandemic has created the perfect conditions. On top of that, he is here, dedicatedly silhouetting his internet experience against the backdrop of his own interests and inclinations. From audiobook classics, contemporary music moments, audio sketches of historical times, to the great mysteries of the world and the (also mysterious) latencies of conspiracy theorists, this station aims both to entertain, and to engage the intellect, as if one were not possible without the other. << Show Less

Snippet of Maria Montessori As the world evolves to necessitate new skills and ways of thinking, students cautiously weigh the value given to the degree against its real-world applicability. In Maria Montessori's time, Rome was barely "burdened" by the woman's aspiring intellect, and therefore she weighed the patricentric education system she cleverly entered against the cultural adequateness of the (masculine) title "Dottore." In this experience, she saw what in youth conditions this conception, and founded an educative method that allowed students to pursue what they subjectively valued, as opposed to what they were told to value. In this snippet, you'll learn about some of the key aspects of the Montessori method, as well as some info on her extremely interesting life and work, which you can find more of on The History Chicks Station. As a doctor, she often cared for patients to the degree of a personal aid or mother, a practice that allowed the notion, "women's work is human work" to illustrate what today are forms and fields of education - criticized as valueless - that only the courage to value for oneself will ever legitimize. Indeed, it is easy to see how her care for a patient's physical wellbeing crossed over into care for the student's mental.
