Dr Tae has some provocative things to say. Some of what jumped out at me….
….knowledge is not a cheeseburger….sharing what we know doesn’t mean we will lose it or use it up. In fact when we share what we know we build on and solidify our knowledge
….”certified” doesn’t necessarily mean “qualified”. An alarming statistic – 90% of middle school science teachers in the US do not have any form of science training…. How many teachers are teaching subjects that they have no formal training in? (My question: How many school “librarians” have no formal library qualifications?)
….learning by doing. Hands on learning is essential!!!! We don’t learn by sitting & listening in lecture halls and classrooms. The perfect science lesson = “Mythbusters”
What do you think?
