Is the increased maturity of children leading us to educate them wrong?
In modern first world culture children not have much more access to information through multimedia and technology. Censors are more lenient, mobile internet more prevalent, access to knowledge and people is easier than ever.
Children as a result are less likely to ask questions and may be more inclined to self educate in areas of curiosity and interest. Does this new access to to information that would be previously staggered and controlled mean that children are maturing quicker and education needs to account for this?
Adults learn because they want to or have to, unlike children can be told to, will this now change?
Do we need to take more form Andragogy to apply to our Pedagogies?
