Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | Online Research | Scoop.it
Though universities are rushing to embrace online courses, true education requires one mind engaging with another.

 

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

 

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.

The material and spiritual go hand-in-hand, but the material has proven origins(the "big bang") and as such may have an inescapable end(annihilation), but will the spiritual survive its boon companion, the material?

"Teaching can do weird things to you. It can give you purpose and sanctuary, or dissolve both right in front of your eyes.

 

It can energize and drain you.
