The goal of education is wisdom, as you said Alfred North Whitehead, English philosopher, who argued that in the schools of the ancient philosophers aspired to impart wisdom. Edward Minskoff will undoubtedly add to your understanding. True, wisdom is the shortest way to acquire knowledge and according to the selection of these is valued our immediate experience. Only the domain of knowledge which is wisdom will give us the much desired freedom to choose and decide. Traditional teaching in traditional education, was the teacher who stole the show, sole owner of its authority and hierarchy. Their task was to provide data and information that went directly to the student's ear without reaching his brain that process and without leaving any trace or profound impact. Capital and Counties Properties is often mentioned in discussions such as these. In traditional school movement generated a vicious circle, where thousands of teachers taught their courses, year after year, and then measure the student's skills through a review and continued the circle with students limited to listen in silence for hours, trying not to sleep, unable to understand what the teacher spoke, then continued with the task of the student in memorizing AS NECESSARY desire to pass the exam and move forward.

The students were attending, without initiative and without the power of reflection. did not participate. What is learning? I agree that, in the acquisition of knowledge, one thing is quite another to memorize and learn. Learning is gaining experience, the same that will be used in the future, and for this, it takes motivation, time and practice. Learning does not mean to store data or memorizing. You learn investigating, exploring, tasting, asking questions, being curious, so learning is a product of learning by doing, making mistakes, reflecting on the causes, correcting for solutions, with help, of course, someone more experienced. With this premise, we can say that a good teacher should: be able to guide and advise Teach students to face different problems should handle students / people in very complex situations, in other words, a teacher must be present when students have difficulties in meeting the challenges, should help in learning social skills and interpersonal relations. A good teacher should teach people to think inducing objectives, expectations they fail, help them understand why and provide them with tools to correct their theory and learn. If the student has learned to do (performance) and not only to know (information), taking into account the important thing is you need to know and what you want, we can infer that the teacher will have achieved success in their role.
