J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, August 13, 1:11 PM

Learning by teaching. I think that's why I'm a teacher, because I love to learn and see others catch on. 

Amanda O'Connell's curator insight, September 18, 1:16 AM

Good insights here in this article. It is a common known fact that we learn and remember more if we have to teach somebody - it is part of the thinking distilling process that happens when the brain has to process new information but at the same time make enough sense of it so others could understand the new information too. This is a great lesson for classroom teachers who are reluctant to do away with the 'sage on the stage' model and give the power over to the learners.

It's true that education is beginning to catch up with technology, though it saddens me that we're still talking about teachers making the transition from "sage on the stage" to "guide on the side." Even so, small steps forward are small steps in the right direction

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 9, 1:39 PM

Is it? Digital technologies are continuously changing. What does that mean about this catching up?
