SHOW NOTES: This episode is part of our EDUCATORS’ EDEN™ series wherein we explore the paradise that the most passionate, creative and committed educators create for themselves, their students, peers, administrations and institutions!
“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.” -
This series acknowledges the power of education! Those fortunate enough to be educators share knowledge to ensure that their love of learning is able to flourish and thrive in a version of eden! Teaching (any students, in any format, in any setting) is honorable and one of the most special endeavors that humans engage in. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
Our show topic is, “Sage on the stage? Good, bad, obsolete?”
Definition of SAGE:
1 a : wise through reflection and experience
2 : proceeding from or characterized by wisdom, prudence, and good judgment
Sage. (n.d.). Retrieved July 12, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sage
The effective and contented modern sage on the stage must combine the love of knowledge with the love of sharing of knowledge (especially the challenge of communicating complex concepts to learners with no understanding and/ or interest in the material). Technology is a tool for use in teaching as other prior tools have been (physical textbooks, in class films, etc.).
BOTTOM LINE: Sage on the stage first, and then guide on the side second.
