He clearly states that “[tests] are [one’s] ability to retain and spout back misinformation”. Ultimately, John believes that the systematic build of education is a joke that is no longer valued. However, through his interaction with Carol, it seems that he still holds on to the idea that knowledge is important. He still believes good education is possible; however, he only felt he could do this by reaching a more personal level with his
Which says that you should follow what your inner self is telling you. You should even follow it if it is evil because you shouldn't try to live the “correct life.” Merely because yours peers or the figures you see everyday say it's right. If you put your foot forward and just attempt to see what you can do on your own you will be surprised on how much ability u have and have been missing out on. This is what cause you to mature mentally because if you can sit back and find your strengths and weaknesses it will elude you from what others are saying because the confidence you have built in yourself. That's why Emerson wants us to “mature” to become better versions of
In the current decade, students are often encouraged to comment and criticize one’s work. This process is looked as a way to make students think and apply what they had learnt in classrooms. I agree that it indeed provokes students’ thought process and is effective for them to gain better understanding on a certain topic. However, the expectations of criticizing someone’s work had just been raised to a whole new level as they’re actually encouraged to tear apart someone’s work and always having something to disagree with rather than criticizing constructively. During discussions, teachers are often interested to hear students arguing about their own standpoints rather than the actual takeaways from the paper.
Education involves the seeking of facts, and learning about what is the truth, and what is not. Indoctrination is aimed at influencing people to believe in facts, without being able to back up these newfound facts with anything but opinion.” Education is designed to help people develop their own belief system. It can be supported and backed up by fact. On the other hand statements that include the words ‘all’ and ‘every’ are not backed up by fact, they are merely opinions but, if you accept it as true, then it no longer an opinion, it is indoctrination. Education is unbiased, It is grounded in fact, and it doesn’t sway people towards a certain belief.
Adult learners are mostly motivated to work hard as they believe education is applicable and will help them succeed in life. The third principle is dialogue wherby the adult learner expects two-way communication, the adult learner would want to ask the educator when he or she does not understand something; and expects to get feedback in return. Finally problem-solving, here the adult educator should learn to observe their learners and try to figure out where there is a problem. Sometimes adult learners want help but are unable to ask for it, they offen have personal problems and would want to be taught how to come up with a solution; in most cases they use what they learn in the classroom to associate with what is happening around them
The consequence part is not wrong because people should be able to follow guidelines. The problem is that this teaches students that if they see someone who is not dressed modestly in public, they should also receive consequences. School is such a big part of students’ lives and if they are being taught this at such a young age, then they are going to apply that mindset outside of school as well and later on in the future. Teaching these mindsets at an early age is like learning to read or learning a new language at an early age (Benefits). The younger you learn it, it sticks to the brain more.
I was effective when it came to thinking out of the box. Students learn differently, so I had to develop and utilize different strategies and techniques to influence every student. Moreover, what works for one student may not work for another. Therefore, teachers have to be creative and adaptive with their
Differences One significant difference between Bruner and Vygotsky is that Bruner believes that students learn better if they obtain information and knowledge themselves through active participation and teacher only giving support at the right time. Conversely, Vygotsky believes that students face challenges when teachers left too much work for them to do independently. He thought students learned better when they communicated, interacted, shared and discussed with one another. Real life
Edmunson says something similar “Teachers who really do confront students, who provide significant challenges to what they believe, can be very successful,” ( Edmundson, para 37) this means that teachers who introduce methods that challenge the students can actually teach them on a on a more critical level. “ By confronting students with uncertainty, ambiguity, and conflicting perspectives, instructors help them develop more mature mental models that coincide with the problem-solving approaches used by experts.” ( Lombardi, pg. 10) Each of these people tell how authentic thinking can be helpful and work towards teaching students on a more detailed level. While this only works if the teacher in question knows what they are
Our students don’t always learn what we want them to learn, but they always learn something. Other than the curriculum, they may learn how to get the teacher mad, or how to avoid responsibility, either way, learning takes place. (Ben Johnson, 2011). To solve these problems, and the problems that the teacher made in this video, we must be a humanistic model teacher, build better relationship with all the students, make clear rules, create an effective learning environment, and setting the emotional climate for learning. In this case, the teacher makes some mistakes: First, we can see, they take the test, that means this is not the first time the teacher teaches these students.
