“Educating isn’t only about teaching what the curriculum says, it’s about learning from your students, implementing what they need/want to learn…to personalize teachings. That’s the way curriculum is more effective.It also requires patience”—asthmaticreflections (via makewudunotwar)
“Education is not the transmission of information or ideas. Education is the training needed to make use of information and ideas. As information breaks loose from bookstores and libraries and floods onto computers and mobile devices, that training becomes more important, not less. Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves. Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.”—Don’t Confuse Technology With Teaching - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education (via infoneer-pulse)
