145 - SPARK - We Need to Use Our Own Brains
Teaching is partly about loving kids enough to empower them. It’s about teaching them how to fish instead of just tossing them more fish.
And in the remote learning environment, there’s never been a better time for students to learn how to learn. To use their own brains.
Educators are all tech people. We’re all on a journey of learning right now. And now, more than ever, we need to learn how to learn.
We need to take ownership of our professional learning journeys. We need to teach ourselves what we need to know.
We need to use our own brains.
Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice. These short episodes are based on my written reflections, which you can find on the Teachers on Fire Magazine at Medium.com.
