The word interested me as I got into the educator field. Many people would like to take up the position of teacher.
The teacher is to show, instruct, to point out.
As adults, we take a position to teach the children. We already take a stand that kids are here to learn and we’re here to instruct. As teachers, we are not ready to learn and we always try to show irrespective of what the learners really think of.
Learners do not learn by what we’re taught but by their activity of learning. How do they learn? Well, there are myriad ways of learning. The moment we fall into the trap of putting the teacher at the center instead of the learner, the learning turns boring.
