Sad but true.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 30, 4:42 PM
Diversity of ideas is essential in teaching and learning. Ask questions that do not have pre-determined answers. It can hold a space open for conversations.

"Society stresses the importance of education. Good grades in school propel a kid to a prestigious institution; and getting into a world-renowed college leads to a bright, successful future. And this generation is lucky, we are mostly well-educated."

Great piece! Really difficult to change the habit of some teachers and students who like to be handed the photocopied piece of research though. Would love to see more of this!
