Why do we teach the way we do?
An issue I regularly wrestle with in my mind is the conflict between my ideologies about learning (including the reasons that lead me into teaching) and the standardised, exam-focussed reality where results are given so much importance. Whilst visiting the fantastic Mathematics and Multimedia blog by Guillermo Bautista, I stumbled across an excellent video that addresses many of the conflicts discussed above and really makes you question ‘why do we teach the way we do’?
A fascinating watch. A big thanks to Guillermo Bautista for bringing this video to my attention.
