In this episode Dan and Ed examine the dynamics behind teaching and learning. They rely on first-hand experiences to explain how the structure of our schools often places the teacher in a Sage-On-The-Stage role rather than as an education facilitator and mentor.
They share examples of programs that work and issues faced by teachers working in the system. Both share observations of how learning accelerates when children start taking responsibility for their own learning. An important part of this episode is the vital role parents must play in their child’s education.
