Andreas Kuswara's insight:
The acknowledgment and acceptance that we as human being are diverse seem to be diminishing these days... or probably just me being grumpier than usual :-)
On the other side of the globe; looking at the new coverage of the US election (not the election itself), was constant pressure to the politician to answer using absolute words. It seems impossible for the constituent to accept that sometimes their leaders can't make up their mind (yet - ps, of course, it would be problematic if they never make up their mind.).
Closer by, any disagreement or difference of opinion amongst party member would apparently 'signify' a fracture within that political party. The only acceptable state practically an absolute agreement.
How do we conduct our classroom? Not all of the topics we teach are absolute, aren't they? How much do freedom/flexibility/creativity/diversity afforded in our teaching practice (either physical or online)? And in our preparation of that teaching environment?
The video did not mention any direct relation to education, it something that triggers my mind. Sometimes there is a high expectation to conform to one set of practice as if it is a tested proven approach; but is there such thing? Or we as educators need to be armed with various tools to afford us to be more nimble and adaptive?
