A MUST read!!!

 

Sridevi Parthasarathy's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:43 PM

The most powerful thought this article provokes, is the need to empower children to feel independent and take pride in their ideas. Education is no longer about a tedious transfer of information but facilitating innovation in learning and debating differences. This will call for  a radical change in the way we view our education system, especially in India. We claim to mimic the traditional Gurukul system  which called for experiencing life while learning from it; but we go against every construct of experience and believe that recall of knowledge is way to suceed. The Social Media could contribute greatly in this process of debate, as long as we put in regulators to help people focus.

The 5 Questions Teachers should Ask Students

The 5 Questions Teachers should Ask Students | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Well-posed questions are not necessarily intricately worded questions and most often simple and breve questions can drive much more learning and elicit insight that those complex question would do. Framing good questions is an art that is learned through practice. It does take some time particularly for those newly recruited teachers, to master this art but it eventually comes along with experience.
