Education

A topic by Tony Ennis
  • "Banking model --> kids are like piggy banks: empty till you fill them with knowledge that you're the expert in."
  • "Our scholarly understanding of how learning happens is like astronomy 2000 years ago. "
  • "Before the late 19th century, no human society had ever attempted to formally educate the entire populace"
  • We use "the elite “Lyceum” style of instruction even though it’s ineffectual with most kids."
  • Homework doesn't really help, especially younger kids.
  • Students don't learn a thing from testing. Most teachers don't either (it's supposed to help them tweak instruction, but that rarely happens).
