What I Can Teach You About Education
Adil Baguirov is a board member in Dayton school but has relieved his position for new and better opportunities. After all, his past works gave a huge contribution to how the education system is and to how it will affect students.
Education isn’t a finite process more so, it doesn’t start at morning bell and stops at dismissal and most especially, it doesn’t begin on your first day of Kindergarten and finishing on your graduation day on college, which has been seen by Adil Baguirov Dayton.
Adil Baguirov is saddened with the present education system we have now which different parts of the globe follows as well is focused on achieving goals, passing tests and hitting the correct answers. There are a number of foundational blocks that are crucial for developing lifelong learning. These aren’t new ideas that were presented because in reality, there are several studies and researches that can support this.
Number 1. Learning should be relevant – if we get to learn skills because it’s needed to do something that matters, then it is easier for us to remember it. So as an example, for students who want to know how to properly measure the land area and calculate it to grow a garden, they will need a formula to get the answer. In one way or the other, they’ll get the formula on their own which can improve their skills and widen their knowledge.
Number 2. Extrinsic rewards – extrinsic rewards given for activities that people enjoy can cause the decrease of their motivation, which is believed by Adil Baguirov as well. To make it simpler, if you have a kid who enjoys reading and has become a habit for him/her to read 30 minutes a day, giving them rewards will cause it to have less pleasure from reading.
As a matter of fact, Adil Baguirov Dayton believe that such rewards has to be saved from the time that it is needed in motivating people to do things that they don’t want. Aside from that, learning associated with grades becomes learning only for grades and not for added knowledge. Fact is, there are thousands upon thousands of newly graduated students even those with honors who are having a hard time recalling the content of what they learnt.
Number 3. Group study – collaborative learning environments actually encourages students to listen to others, think for themselves and explain what they think. The moment they leave school, it is vital for students to collaborate to each. Still with our current education system, it insists to test them one by one and at the same time, encourages them to compete instead of collaborate, which is something that Adil Baguirov Dayton likes to rule out.
