What if pedagogy took trauma into account?
Everyone comes to class with some emotional baggage. Most students will carry it without the teacher ever noticing. Some, however, are going through difficult things and these may come out in a school setting. In the United States, among other places, educational experts are focusing on traumatized children and their inclusion rather than excluding them for "bad behavior."
Classroom discussion: instructions for use
The transmission of knowledge is done a great deal through speech. Parents teach children the basics of language by talking to them, their relatives teach them things by telling them, and the teacher writes verbally to explain the material. What if learners could also learn by talking to each other? This can be done, but the tags must be clear from the start.
Preparing the educational future in incubators
Many institutions want more educational innovation in the classroom. However, imposing technologies on a teaching staff carries more risks than benefits. Educational incubators or labs are ideal in this sense to allow for discussion, analysis, and planning of what to do next.
Pop culture as a way to learn philosophy
Philosophy is a part of the humanities that seems, at first sight, more complex to approach. It does not necessarily attract sympathy. However, it is everywhere, including in the most popular audiovisual works. This is why some people use this "pop philosophy" to help people understand the theories of the great thinkers from antiquity to the present day.
Build team spirit even from a distance
Working in a team already requires excellent cohesion and respect between members. Add distance and it can quickly become problematic. However, the health crisis of 2020 has shown that in both professional and academic settings, it is possible to achieve this. It is possible that this form of collaboration will continue after the pandemic. Synthesis of best practices.
