Teaching versus Educating

I really like this video because I think it really highlights the problems with the teaching model as we know it and identifies what the true role of teachers and educators should be. The fact that I have tried to apply the ideas outlined in this video has led me into a state of conflict with the Education department for whom I work. Too many teachers think their role is simply to regurgitate facts, figures, information, processes and procedures and then test knowledge, which is a shame.
