my axioms
My Axioms
  • A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.
  • The aim of education should be to convert the mind into a living fountain, and not a reservoir.
  • Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.
what it means
What it means
  • A key point of my axioms is not what you have it is what you do with it
    • Knowing everything won’t help
    • You have to know how to apply that knowledge
    • Make connections
  • Encourage students to expand their knowledge
    • Provide meaningful opportunities
    • Encourage curiosity
theories behind my axioms
Theories Behind My Axioms
  • Constructivism
    • Students construct knowledge through meaningful social interactions
      • My dad took me out in nature and connected
      • My teacher barely gave me the time of day
    • Scaffolding
      • My dad gradually let me start exploring and learning about the world by myself
more theories
More Theories
  • Naturalistic Theory
    • Relationships with others are important to learning
      • My relationship with my dad facilitated my learning
      • Because I had no meaningful relationship with my teacher my learning was inhibited
    • Learner’s desire to become knowledgeable because of a knowledgeable model who invites them to “join the club”
      • My dad’s desire to have me learn about nature and his passion made me want to have the same knowledge
even more theories
Even More Theories
  • Cognitive Theory
    • Knowledge constructed from experiences
      • My dad took me out into nature
    • Predict what will happen based on experience
what it means to me
What it means to me
  • Provide students meaningful activities
  • Connect what students learn to what they like
  • Create a friendly community that fosters exploration
  • Be passionate about what I’m teaching but not just the facts
