Purpose of Education
Putting Purpose into Action
Students and Teachers Often Have Different Goals
Conversely the learner has preconceived notions of what needs to be learned. Notions that do not necessarily match what the teacher has in mind. Often the learner is interested in learning only what is necessary and not one thing more.
The dissonance between teachers and learners must be bridged. The teacher must use everything in their tool box to bridge the gap. Today with digital technology the teacher has more tools than ever before, but as in the past must choose a mix of tools that will effectively bond the learner with the learning material. Not a simple or easy task.

The Joy Of Learning
Learning can be fun and doesn't need to be a serious and stressful exercise.
