We cannot accept everything in education

http://www.justintarte.com/2013/10/8-things-we-cant-accept-in-education.html

According to the author in the above link there are 8 things that educators cannot accept in education. I think that they are interesting especially the point that in education we cannot accept the methods, principles and actions that were used in the past as still being the best for the future. This also applies to how we view technology in education. In fact, technology cannot be ignored in today’s time but it has to be integrated in our lesson plans and methodologies for teaching. Especially since children are now growing in a world full of various technologies from entertaining to problem-solving in businesses. Thus, we have to find innovative ways of using current technologies for teaching purposes.

    “We can’t accept working in isolation”
    As Justin Tarte said in the page you linked, group work will enhance the students knowledge and more importantly it will give them a insight into what happens when a group of people work together as there will most probably be both agreements and disagreements. If the students are encouraged to work in a group than they will be more experienced to what happens in a group when they are at their work place and have to work with their colleagues to achieve the goal they were required to do.

    One point which I liked in this link was that we could not accept and continue to think that learning is limited to what happens within the four walls of a classroom.
    Learning is everywhere and knowledge is waiting for you to acquire it. Students are not like in the past years, they do not need the teacher to gain knowledge because they have the internet. Therefore the teacher has to encourage them to use the new technology in order for them to find knowledge regarding what they are learning.
