In our discussion group on Friday we talked about how teachers and peers learn from each other. We think that the best way to learn is through experience. In our society we always try to teach through textbooks or structured learning. We learn best through experience because we are able to teach each other life lessons. We also are always learning new things because growing up we were a-custom to the developing technology so it was normal to know how everything works. We also talked about how if we had better communication in a classroom the teacher student relationship would be a lot stronger. Also we talked about how if we had a more open discussion in the classroom people would be able to discuss with others in the real world. If I was taught more social skills and how to go in for a job interview or how to talk to a boss it would have been much more beneficial than learning pointless material o “shit sandwiches” that the teacher is throwing at us. Something else that we discussed in our group is how learning from peers and teachers gives you insight to new viewpoints. I was thinking about this a lot people in my high school we were not allowed to talk about politics in our history class to avoid people getting upset but i wish we did because I want to hear what other people have to say about it. Overall we had a great talk and a lot of the material helped me with my project.
