Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | Technology and Inventions | 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.
