  • Apr 26 2012: Have teachers got it all wrong? Can children learn without teachers explicitly providing the answers or can they, through communication and cooperation, work out the answers to most problems. Are teachers modelling an outdated Victorian system which inhibits creative thinking by providing an authoritarian figure with all the answers.
    • Apr 27 2012: Hey Kieron.
      Personally, teachers should work just like a guidance, they should not provide an authoritarian figure to students although they actually not. In deeply terms, it's the inappropriate result of social development.
