Include everyone. Learn while you teach. 


with support all things are possible 


I believe in an open and relaxed attitude. I am strict when it comes to my students speaking their own language in class, and I dont like it if they are not working properly.I want my students to feel happy and confident enough to make mistakes and ask questions. I use a communicative, constructive approach which works best. I absolutely hate testing and exams having some awful experiences in the past in Oman especially where the students were given so many tests this had a detrimental effect on their progress because of insufficient opportunity for teaching and learning. 


That education exists for everyone to reach their full potential. Teaching must always be a positive experience; we can all learn, the question is how? 


Critical pedagogy influenced by such people as Giroux,
Friere, Illich, (Paul) Goodman, and Boal.
 


I use a combination of ecological psychology (neo-Gibsonian) and complex adaptive systems theory.

In practice, it means designing learning events and spaces as complex ecologies of learning.
 


Learning are about processes and sincerity. you can't count how much you learn and how's the result just in a blink of an eye. 


Learn the Word, accept Jesus and be saved. 


Explain only what the student is able to understand, don't get out of reach. 


I fully subscribe to the dictum: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." The desire to learn and grow must come from a fully committed student! This commitment requires personal sacrifice, discipline and an ability to delay gratification.

Education is the very seat of absolute empowerment. An educated mind is a thinking mind. A thinking mind has the ability to move powerfully beyond any adversity and limitation.

Whilst I subscribe to the need for an energy exchange, the internet is creating the possibility for excellent teaching to reach a broad community of willing learners at limited cost.

I am creating a portal called Learning Circles Media where a group of life skills teachers can interact with a global classroom through the internet. Everyone has the capacity to teach by sharing valuable life experience. Through forums, chat rooms and by posting relevant material, the students can all act as meaningful teachers to each other, thus significantly broadening the experience for all.
 


Just to save the human dignity of those category of persons,to show them that they are able to do all important things as others in society 


To capture the essence of "education" one must answer the question: Is Man a Tabala Rassa [empty slate] or something else? Most reasonable people believe that Man "learns" what he or she knows from outside of him/herself. But I believe that what most people "think" is acquiring knowledge from ones environment is, in fact, simply validating what one already "Knows", having acquired it in some previous life.

To appreciate my belief, one must distinguish between "information" [which is indeed drawn from and acquired by study of ones environment], and "Knowledge" which I believe ONLY comes from "within" oneself. And of course to have previously acquired Knowledge in some previous life or lives, one must also be open to the concept of reincarnation.

So, for me the most effective and beneficial "education" is helping a person awaken to the Knowledge that is stored within him/herself... having been experienced in previous lives [this is known in the East as Karma] and this body of information and various experiences are now "ready" to be converted from information into "Knowledge". Knowledge being something one KNOWS as a certainty, or as an absolute Truth - as opposed to what one thinks or believes to be true from an intellectual perspective.
 


My educational philosophy is that it is important to teach basic principles first and to then integrate those principles into real life exercises, gradually to teach more difficult principles as easier ones are learned, and to encourage the student in his studies encouraging him to discern good books so as to read and learn independently. Common sense says that you can't read if you don't know the alphabetical sounds and their rules; you can't figure if you don't know the math facts and you can't know your Catholic Faith until you know what is in the Catholic Catechism. Once one knows the basic truths one can learn whatever he is free to study. Mr. John Gatto said something to the effect that, "Old timers would have their students read a hard book, working through it as necessary. Ever after that the student could read anything." I recommend Mrs. Laura Berquist's book Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum for many good ideas. 


Take an interest in everything. Pay attention. Be aware, or "awake," as Thoreau would say. 


We learn best when we want to. Learning is best in a relaxed and comfortable situation. Tests are good for testing how well you can take a test. Teachers should listen to students, but still be the teacher.
