magna disputandum ~ The Great Debate

The Great Debate — Do we teach for the person? Do we teach for a future job? Do we teach for a STEM focus?

What is worthy of teaching and for others to learn has been one of the deepest and greatest debates in educational philosophy.

There are no simple answers and it seems the responses from history says it depends on the times we live. That is not an appropriate answer…

What if we were able to identify timeless skills that are necessary for personal success no matter the age we live and focus our early energies on those in equal to the content (that rapidly changes) that is currently taught to students?

Our world is not slowing down. So, how do we equip the next generation for the cognitive and emotional dexterity to not only succeed, but thrive?

Curae,
Agimus tibi Dominus
