No bad questions?

It is sometimes said that there are no good answers, only good questions. This might be the mindset or operating philosophy of educators who believe that it is not answers but questions that drive learning.

That said, it is worth remembering that there can be some very odd or seemingly stupid questions. The collection of questions to Yahoo Answers in the video above is a case in point.

But you might also see why these questions appear online instead of in a classroom. The relative anonymity online allows people to ask honest questions. Teachers of all kinds provide answers and non-answers.

The questions are funny. However, what we should not make light of is our current human capacity to be taught by anyone, anywhere, and at any time.
