Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing?

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

"Schooling and institutionalized education have become removed from true, instinctual, and human/humane learning.  Humans have been learning since the beginning of time with major discoveries and innovations historically and currently emerging in spite of school.  This is the biggest problem I have with schools – most are contrived and coercive and do not honor the innate human need and desire to learn, discover, and evolve."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 20, 10:24 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein states "to fully understand the purpose of school, the history of its evolution as an institution needs to be understood." After this is discussed she provides refers to an article that discusses "how to bring our schools out of the 20th century."

The next section shares quotes from a wide range of people on schooling. Three are below.

* Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  Albert Einstein

* Knowledge that is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind. Plato

* Education is one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.  Bertrand Russell

She then looks at the messages sent out by our current school system and asks if we are questioning "What is the purpose of school?"

In fact, there are 8 questions that are raised in this post. You can find them in the image above, or you may click through to the post.

Lisandra Duprey-Rodriguez's curator insight, August 21, 11:19 AM

So true. Spoke to my mommyhoodfun partner the other day about parenting not being something we learn to understand by reading a book or article. .I mean it's nice to have resources, don't get me wrong, but where in the book does it say, How to react when your child poops on you? What to do if your child vomits right in your mouth after picking them up? Or How to prepare for the one that will climb 4 pantries up just to get to the cereal they can't have? Um not one I tell ya. It's a whole lot of experiencing it and patience. :D

George Curran's curator insight, August 11, 4:17 PM

"The philosophy of harm reduction is based on our knowledge that human beings engage in behaviors that carry risks. Harm reduction values each person’s dignity and respects their right to make choices. This shifts the focus from attempting to restrict or prohibit risky behaviors to reducing the negative consequences associated with them."

Violent video games: More playing time equals more aggression

Violent video games: More playing time equals more aggression | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

A new study provides the first experimental evidence that the negative effects of playing violent video games can accumulate over time. Researchers found that people who played a violent video game for three consecutive days showed increases in aggressive behavior and hostile expectations each day they played. Meanwhile, those who played nonviolent games showed no meaningful changes in aggression or hostile expectations over that period.
