A lot of graduates think that the only time to apply is after you graduate. Some of them have learned that the sooner you apply for a job (when you are still in college), the better.

10 principles of teaching yourself anything | Capital Campus | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

If you have ever watched the movie Good Will Hunting starring Matt Damon and Robin Williams, you can’t help admire the young man played by Damon who becomes way intelligent than the students by spending time at the library and by observation. The movie is inspiring. But there are people who have achieved raving success by teaching themselves a skill or a competency.

Theophilus's curator insight, Today, 1:18 PM

Abraham Tumuti's scoop of this article from Kenya bring an encouraging caution from Simon Mwiti, the chairman of Kenya Primary Head Teachers Association.


Simon addresses a difficulty felt in more education systems in the world than governments are prepared to admit.


"Teaching first and ... (then) ... testing the understanding of learners", as he puts it, shows that Mwiti is not against testing. He is simply asking for the results of the test to modify the way you teach and what you teach instead of it simply providing a set of indicators for purposes other than fostering true learning.
