We all wish that our children should be taught by certified teachers who’ve have teaching degrees. I get it. But then again, that’s not a good idea all the time. Today’s certified teachers cannot possible keep up with the latest technology, trends and ideas.
Plan a week (or one afternoon each week) at school where no one with a teacher’s degree can teach. Invite parents, people from nearby businesses and other experts to address and teach the students about what they do and know. It won’t be perfect, but it will be different and certainly a learning experience for everyone involved.
Plan a week at your business or school when you invite experts from totally different fields to talk about how they solved different problems or met various challenges. How does that dry cleaner owner deal with difficult customers? How does a nurse deal with emotional patients and families?
Expand whom we are learning from and keep evolving that learning society.
