If we teach our learners to be thinkers, to be creative and solvers of problems, they will be adaptable and will thrive in an ever changing world.Encouraging experiential, self-directed learning is what all our students need, with a focus on self-growth and individual rights. Developing self responsibility through self-guided, discovery and exploratory learning. If we developed this type of education across our schools, our students would cope in a changing world, adapting to change. May be interested and motivated problem-solvers.
As education leaders and educators we should be focusing on the individual learner in our lessons.
Never before in human history, have we as teachers had technological tools, which we can use to assist in making individualised learning realistic, effective and easier to use.
These tools can be used to truly achieve and create individual learning strategies.
Collaborative productivity suite tools: google docs, sheets, slides, drawings, forms (add collaborators)
Use the tools for peer reviewing and effective, accountable team work engagements.
Einstein expressed: “A person doesn’t need to go to college to learn facts. He can get them from books. The value of ------- college education is that it trains the mind to think. And that’s something you can’t learn from textbooks. If a person had ability, a college education helps develop it.”
