Full disclosure: I love the holiday season and most everything that goes along with it. I have two young children and watching the excitement of the season sink in recalls magical memories when I was their age. With that said, the constant bombardment of product promotions is exhausting, bordering on nauseating!
Teachers face new challenges every day. Recently I read an article discussing the trials that teachers face with the constant advancement of new technologies, curriculum reforms and ever-changing make-up of languages within the classroom.
“The district set up model classrooms so teachers could observe brain-friendly lesson styles and strategies like using an “adult voice,” which is supportive and nurturing, rather than a “parent voice,” which is loud and directive and can cause resistance.”
As someone who is in the “education” field, I’m constantly fascinated by how people learn. One of my jobs at my company is to see that the teachers and other educational professionals we serve know (learn) how to use our classroom audio products to their full potential.
One of the most exciting things for me as a person who works in the education field is to think about all the potential we have for helping students be all they can be. And that only happens best if education is a two-way street. In fact, the word “education” is built on the word “educe,” which means to draw out, or bring out, or elicit. It also means to evolve something from a potential state. And, that is what education does best: it brings out potentials.
