... to hide young Georges' other school books so he would not be distracted from his musical studies. He received his first music lesson from his mother when he was just four years old.

82: Movie: Dead Poet's Society - The Dead Poet That Killed Himself
... philosophy of carpe diam (seize the day)? Mr. Keating believed that people should "suck the marrow out of life" and live like a free thinking person even at the young age of seventeen.

Our fledgling nation of only 200 years is a mental midget in this world. Why is it that we are 17th in the world in education. Is it that we are stupid? No, it is that we have diverged from the old world teaching methods of Europe and Asia. Japan is third is the world in education. The reason is simple.

To learn and no other reason. In the end, it should be noted that although Mr. Keating's teaching philosophy was debunked, he made one good point. Neil should have spoken to his parents. Neil's case is a perfect example of a mind not ready for independent thought. A mind without discipline. ...

84: Adult Education In The U.s.
... the construct has been largely defined in terms of external control and facilitation, rather than internal cognitive processing and learning. Long¡¯s position was that, without the psychological or cognitive dimension, the focus is on teaching not learning. He argued that ¡°Pedagogical procedures whether imposed by a teacher or freely chosen by the learner remain pedagogical or ¡®teaching¡¯ activities. Hence we have other-teaching or perhaps self-teaching but not self-learning¡±. This distinction between external control and internal cognitive responsibility is the basis for the self-directed learning framework and model presented here. More recently, Brockett and ...

... Yet little has really changed. Academia is still largely a medieval guild, with a few powerful elites, many slave-like apprentices, and members who hold a monopoly on the research patronage of princes and the teaching of their sons. Outsiders still complain about bias, saying their evidence is ignored, and many observers [Gh,Red,SmP,Syk,Tr,Tul] have noted some long-standing problems with the research component of academia. {footnote: Teaching reform is beyond the scope of this paper. I am content to observe that there are no obvious reasons why the changes I will propose should make teaching worse.} As currently practiced {footnote: Early peer reviewer consisted more of personally observing experiments and trying to reproduce analyses.} peer review is just another popularity contest, inducing familiar political games; savvy players criticize outsiders, ...

Teach the kids what's dangerous so they are aware of the hazard areas. Safety is an important aspect of teaching. It is something you must be conscious of at all times. Remember to always have an aid with you incase of an emergency and to show the kids that you are alert and looking out for them, especially if your teaching really young kids that are just learning how to swim and don't have a lot of self confidence.

89: Computers and Society
... of trust in them. Computers have also reached into other places besides business, schools.
