Teaching vs learning
Posted December 14, 2014on:
Consider this question:
Here are some of my answers:
Because things have always been done that way.
Because we know no other way.
Because we think we know better.
Because you have to sit for tests that we put in your life that do not have much to do with your life.
These are very weak answers.
The tweeted question is a Googleable one and others have tried answering it in other ways. There are mathematical answers and classical logic answers.
But all those answers miss the point of the question. The point is critical perspective-taking.
