So one thing that I took from home is this notionthat educators don’t necessarily have to teach. Instead, they can provide an environment and resourcesthat tease out your natural ability to learn on your own. Self-study, self-exploration, self-empowerment:these are the virtues of a great education.
Schocken’s lessons here are literal and archetypal. His story reveals a path to developing capacity as a “guide on the side” and re-balancing from the model of “sage on the stage.”
And I love that he explains that we are NOT trying to replace teachers with technology.
We don’t replace teachers, by the way. We believe that teachers should be empowered, not replaced.
