How we teach and how they learn?


How to learn?

From the generation when information was in the teacher’s head and today’s generation where a Tsunami of  information is  available, a long path has been  taken…From the time when information was scarcity, to the time when information has become incredibly abundant, a lot has been done in the educational approaches.

New ways to learn?

New approaches on  learning take into consideration that failure is part and parcel of the learning process. Allowing students to take risks, not to care about the right answers but about the possible answers, and be able to experience and process information are key elements towards true learning.

The following talk shares some of the ideas I really believe in.

  • Experiential learning.
  • Empowering student voice
  • Embracing failure: allowing students to fail. Asking students never to be wrong is the wrongest thing to do with education.

It’s awesome! Just watch…

    It’s really amazing.Nevertheless, you did not take developing countries into account. Most teachers have got at least forty students in their classrooms. This means that teachers’ concerns are to take control over their students. This means that providing such tasks will, certainly, be a failure. Do you have any ideas, please?

  2. It is true that there are so many constraints that hinder successful teaching and learning. One of these constraints is, as you have rightly mentioned, overcrowded classrooms. Still I think that giving opportunity for learners to take responsiblilty for their learning, giving them the chance to fail and then to try again and again is the best way for them to learn…One of the advantages of this approach is to reduce the teaching load and to allow the teacher to guide , monitor, help and scaffold the learning process.
