Mark E. Deschaine, PhD's curator insight, March 26, 12:00 PM
When I talk to teachers, I am struck by the paradox of teaching. They tell me how much they want certainty, knowing full well that is not able. They remain open and curious under those conditions. That is a role model for students.
Dion Acha's curator insight, March 26, 10:14 PM
The title itself caught my attention and was very interested in the content of the article. As a student, I can relate when a teacher lectures about an event and us students believe we know every fact of it and never question the mysterious side. The article gave a few steps into raising curiosity and what stood out instantly was when the author mentioned "provide assignments that students will fail." I found it very ironic how educators would give assignments that students would fail when they should help them succeed. This article provided a whole new perspective of educating students; helping them find the answers to their questions rather than handing it out easily. If educators adapted this style, i strongly believe it would challenge students' brains into figuring out different solutions.

that it’s important for young people to become economically independent and self-sufficient. But to do that, he argues, they shouldn’t all learn the same thing. Instead, they should be learning to be adaptable, to be innovative, to flow with change, to collaborate and other globalized skills that will apply to whatever area of work they are passionate about pursuing. An education can help expose students to different life paths and support them in finding their passions, while giving them the transferable skills to attack any problem.
