Anusha, LETS NOT TEACH
I somehow cannot relate to teaching-thats wat I do,all say.but that isn’t what I intended to do.
Not that I’m undermining teaching.. rather I’d say that this, is by far, the most complex yet the most underrated. Today’s generation cannot be taught.try telling a 5 year old what to do and he or she will bounce back with a standard ‘i know what to do’.
Tagore rightly said “Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he (she) was born in another time.”
Genetically today’s google-generation is advanced,tend to be moody,often multi-skilled and inquisitive. Gadgets have shrunk their world as well as acquainted them with much more. that’s why we cannot teach anymore.
I’d enrich rather than engage!
I’d inspire rather than instruct!
Let us continue to behold the learner’s flame and spark-off young minds. Let us not teach, let us make a difference in the life of a child.
