Your mom has invited me to present a session to student teachers in the Masters program where she works. She wants me to inspire them to focus on learning, beyond the content and methodology of their teaching.
Observing your self driven experimentation and learning might help them value and encourage these qualities in their learners…
And it might encourage them to think about the process of learning…
Does learning best take place through sitting and listening, waiting for instructions or permission, responding to the teacher and demonstrating compliance?
Or will the students learn more through…
- active engagement and interaction
- imagining new possibilities
- experimenting and exploring
- making connections
- constructing meaning, individually and socially
- seeking and solving problems
and, even in high school students…
- playing and creating?
Thanks for being my inspiration,
