The Teacher Who Learned to Listen

PRESENTED ON SEP 07, 2016
IN MAASTRICHT @ VOL 31

"Teaching isn’t just about bestowing substantive knowledge to students. It’s about teaching them and giving them experiences that Google can’t."

It is easy to grasp the concept that communication is a two-way street but how many of us really put the theory into practice? How easily do we fall on the default of just trying to put our point across, specially if we think about education?

Mark Kawakami is passionate about teaching and also describes himself as a failed comedian. In The Teacher Who Learned to Listen from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, he shared what conclusion he came to over the years of teaching.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2016.
