W I S D O M I N K I N D

To learn is to know; to know is to grow; to grow is to change.

If we were all more adaptable, then change would be a molted

layer and not a chiseling carving. Resistance would be less

prevalent when self-improvement is in progress.

If the learning process was passive and you could learn any topic

the same way a baby learns to speak, then maybe learning would

not be so daunting. As you grow older, repetition, memorization,

reading, writing, and practice become the methods for knowledge

attainment.

Learning is like a muscle. With great effort, one can achieve

proficiency and clockwork recall. With proper tools to streamline,

more is learned, more aspects get known, and there are more

opportunities to grow and evolve. No one wants to learn

something forever. We want to learn and then apply. Taste the

savor of our labors. If learning was as straightforward as "an

apple a day to keep the dentist away", would we be less reluctant

towards change?

Question: What is the formula for self-betterment?

Answer: Good Strategies and Good Teachers

The

Good

Teacher

What makes a good teacher?

Teachers are the director, public relations,

accountant, manager, and risk assessor of the

classroom.

They are credited for the successes and failures of

their pupils. The approaches for teachers to

facilitate are as varied as the mélange of students

within a classroom.

The role of a good teacher is to be a good student.

With an ever increasing arsenal of technology and

teaching strategies, the learning process has

ultimately evolved. The end goal for schools relies

on test stats, but students have been gifted with

accessible information that is not limited to

institutions of learning. Students can explore a

multitude of interests, but the need for instructions is

paramount.

There is one primary commonality shared by teachers. They are beacons of knowledge to share

with the invested future. The objective of a class is to learn, not to fail. Good teachers should

embolden students to take a proactive role in their education.

THE OASIS

OF

LEARNING

IS IN BOOKS

The ego of an author to impart wisdom is

the gain of their readers.

There is no skill nor trade that cannot be

instructed through books,

magazines, articles, and literary

works provide inspiration to explore

civilizations and places. A book can be

your best friend on a cold winter night or

your traveling companion while

commuting. Books can present a world

that has never existed or a time and place

that has long since passed.

Books are the artisanal gifts and catered

meals to readers. Information has

been gathered, categorized, and arranged.

It has been typed, bounded, and packaged

for the intended use of reading.

The presented knowledge in a book can be

showcased beyond lifespans. But are books

an effective method of learning?

With the rise of the self-taught movement,

more people are relying on the written

word to guide them through complex

concepts. Divulging into challenging

material requires a multitude of sources

that will require a novice self-learner to

exhibit powers of omnipotence as you do

not know what you do not know.

If you cannot read the text than the words

have no meaning. If you cannot understand

the meaning, then the knowledge is lost.

INO MAGAZINE 10


OASIS OF LEARNING IN BOOKS

continued

The teachings of Pythagoras and literary

works of Shakespeare are still being taught

in schools, but the teachings of Pythagoras

are only third and fourth-handed down

interpretations written over one-hundred

years after his existence. The writings of

Shakespeare is written in an Old English

dialect, long extinct.

Can you learn from these writings and

teachings, if they were written so long ago?

Can books loose their intended meaning?

Can you learn from literary works that

have to be deciphered to seek its meaning?

Why is reading and retention not enough

for learning?

How do you get the most out of books?

Riddle:

What is the one thing a book cannot

provide?
