Thinking ability and interest is the life of education

China is still a developing country where you had better have patience on material hardware of education! 
Now what I concern most is that invisible software which includes the quality of textbooks and how they are taught! 
First, we must throw away some outdated teaching concepts:
 Our aim is to improve the children‘s thinking power instead of the mere gowth of so-called knowledge! Learning knowledge is to sharpen the edge of your thinking-knife that would be smart when dealing with future problems.  Through thinking-ability-training students should feel funny in exploring the physical world and they would do research driven by  their own interest and motivation. 
So ’thinking ability‘ and ’interest' are two elements when we measure the fruit of our teaching work. The old exam-scores or marks are not scientific since those have ‘killed' too many innocent lives for innovation!

    Rubbish are treasures in the wrong position where you place them!

  • From 'official‘ to teacher 2018-7-14 20:14

    Your detailed note focuses on educating toddlers instead of children of all ages!
    May I say that you are not familiar with the first hand materials on Chinese school-teaching? In class teachers and students pay too much attention to the points of knowledge and try to swallow down each word of the text without digestion, ignoring the internal logical connections among the knowledge points!
    Teachers must teach students how to think through knowledge learning!  Book knowledge is limited and useless in most case while thinking ability is the sharpness of  your brain-knife-edge that determines how clever you are for real problem-solving!
    In short words the way of thinking is more important than the fruit of brain-production (knowledge)!
    Fishing skill is more valuable than a basket of fish!
    So let children become little thinker first,then possible for a great thinker when they grow up!
