They Can Read It at Home

One thing teachers today have to realize is that the learners can read it all at home at their leisure.

The title of this post will haunt educators of all types. It has haunted college professors for decades.

They can read it at home

So why “lecture?”

I remember the TV show “Room 222.” The cool teachers didn’t teach like my teachers. Their students read the boring stuff from the textbooks at home. Classes were all free-wheeling discussions—F U N! Well, it was just a TV show, and we all knew that TV and reality just weren’t the same.

Fast forward from 1969 to today. All the knowledge in the world is online—free to read at your leisure.

So what does a “teacher” do “in class?” That is for each teacher to figure out as an exercise on their own (I hated to hear that assignment; I love to assign it.).
