Another dot in the blogosphere?

I am recreating some of my favourite image quotes I created some time ago. This time I use Pablo by Buffer and indicate attribution and CC license.

If you seek to indoctrinate, provide the answers. If you seek to educate, provide questions.

The world of schooling is familiar with the pedagogy of delivering answers. It needs to educate itself by learning the pedagogy of questions. This is where problems are identified and sought before finding or creating solutions.

The pedagogy of answers provides solutions before problems are clear; the pedagogy of questions presents problems before seeking solutions.

Note: I am on vacation with my family. However, I am keeping up my blog-reflection-a-day habit by scheduling a thought a day. I hope this shows that reflections do not have to be arduous to provoke thought or seed learning.

We do not learn from experiences. We learn from reflecting on experiences. -- John Dewey.

Dewey did not mean that experiences do not lead to any learning. Instead he probably meant that we often get caught up in the processes or the moment or the excitement, and forget to ask ourselves what the takeaways are.

Slowing down and rising above the blooming, buzzing mess is what leads to meaningful and deep learning.

You do not have to read the article in this tweet to get the picture.

Does the improvement depicted in the “now” graphic represent one approach fits all or giving different approaches a wider berth?

This is why graphics are powerful conversation pieces for teaching and learning. One visual can create different interpretations which can then be discussed and critiqued. There are no models answers, only modelled thinking.

When I find a juicy quote like this, I do at least three things:

  1. Try to verify that is was actually said and why.
  2. Find out more about the person who said it.
  3. Create an image quote of it.

Edison's electric light did not come about from the continuous improvement of candles. ~ Oren Harari

A quick search revealed Oren Harari to be a business and management professor. The context of the quote seems to be that of encouraging startups to think and act differently.

The quote seems to have made its way into educational circles as thought leaders seek to challenge outdated teaching practices or correct misplaced notions of “innovative” teaching.

I would have liked to have reused the candle bulbs image, but it was not CC-licensed. So I found an alternative.
