The Art of Inspired Education: What do teachers and parents see when they envision a sensational learning environment? What is the fundamental recipe for creating a positive student culture?
The answer: As educators, our primary purpose is to understand how our students' mental and emotional wiring either ignites, or inhibits, their learning. Once we tune into the frequency by which they learn, and live, we cultivate the very bond necessary for inspired education. Then they thrive.
The Art of Inspired Education is exactly that: an artform. It's about so much more than teaching tactics alone. Tactics are important, yes, and they are an essential part of the conversation. Yet at the heart of any learning exchange lies the very people taking part in that exchange. We all go the extra mile for those whom we feel a deep connection to. Understanding how people learn most effectively is the basis for all our success.
Author of the acclaimed new book, One-on-One 101: The Art of Inspired & Effective Individualized Instruction, Robert Ahdoot has given TEDx talks and travels across the country to share his message of inspired learning through human connection. Yay Math strikes a heartfelt chord with worldwide viewers for this very reason: once we gain insights into the modern student psyche, we all flourish.
