Update to "Empowering Education"

Talking Points

Empowered students making meaning and act from reflection, instead of memorizing fact and value, handed to them. This statement questions learning because what is the point of learning when we are told to memorize something? We are not learning anything so what are we gaining from this? It will not provoke any questions which is the stem of learning. We are born learners so we cannot help our curiosity are meant to ask questions, that is the nature of learning.

This statement above makes me think of tests and quizzes because when we are tested we are meant to memorize facts, dates and statements. We are not learning anything, how are we showing what we know by taking a test?
