5 Minds For The Future

SO… When YOU analyze the above mentioned, you must agree that MOST of it could get taught in a project together with the students, a project where THEY have THEIR voice and THEIR responsibility. I suggest (idea), to let the students run themselves with a coach on their side an “Advisory Board” for Internet Safety and Cyber Security. Please check my blog post about it below:

Multidisciplinary Learning and Teaching

sharing-iconFirst of all: I hated since the beginning of my learning adventure in my youth (ages ago…) the linear learning. Thus meaning: first learning module A, then module B, module C and so on… It sounded stupid to me as a 14 year old (45 years ago…) and STILL sounds THE same today! At the time, in college, in mathematics WE learned about the “Set Theory” and I was asking about the WHY WE as students SHOULD learn this, as I didn’t (at that time) see its importance. None of the teachers could explain to me, THEY all just said: it’s on the program, on the curriculum! BTW: when YOU have a look on Wikipedia and check different languages (EN, FR, DE) you will see that THEY didn’t understood it not yet as it is badly explained… Giving credit to the German part of Wikipedia “Mengenlehre” as they at least show practical examples… The French part “Théorie des ensembles” doesn’t show even any images and is pure theory :((( BUT, the French translation of the word “Set Theory” explains about WHAT it is: “ensembles”  which means “together“, things which have something in common. It’s ONLY years later after school left, that I understood the importance of the “Set Theory” when I was looking myself to find an answer on reflecting on how to resolve problems, to find their common points, you know “If then, go to, else…”…

I even trained my brain to think that way, yes that is possible, and when I became an instructor and giving courses to teachers, adults, seniors and teens I used it even more. and that is also the way YOU should teach your students, it helps THEM to become “Critical THINKing” and “Proactive THINKing” persons.
