Marta Venturini Machado
Marta lives in Lisbon and is sometimes my "distant assistant." She has edited many of the transcripts of unschooling chats.

In 2013 Marta organized an unschooling conference in Lisbon, SimpĆ³sio "Sandra Dodd e amigos em Lisboa".

She has translated many articles into Portuguese, and a good number of quotes from Just Add Light and Stir (translations collected here at Juntar uma pitada de luz e mexer). (Links to other translations are there, too.)

In 2012, Marta translated a video I did about unschooling. Both the text and subtitled video are here: Fazer o "Unschooling" Bem

Marta's family at the end of 2015


In 2020, Pam Laricchia interviewed Marta about deschooling. Click here for the transcript, and there are photos there, too. To listen on Pam's page, where you can read the list of questions, that page is here.

Or you can listen here while you poke around those pages and admire those photos.
