Hoarding Knowledge Like Property

Just imagine lot many books on various subjects are closed in a room and locked, all authors who had great knowledge and their experiences published in the form of books (knowledge) exists, but this knowledge which is not given (shared) with others to read,  it will remain there only and one day books in the room will be damaged by time.
Similarly, if an intelligent person does not share his knowledge and experiences, one day it will get destroyed along with person’s death. Learning is not storage of knowledge but it is about sharing with others, it will then get multiplied. Learning is abstract and cannot be divided.

Should Knowledge Chase Student

Under this topic, we have learnt what the other's tried to explain, that how can we attract our students to a class. It is not always necessary that we push our students into the class rather it should be like they are pulled towards the classroom. The teacher creates and generates the curiosity within the students that they are pulled towards to gain and chase the knowledge.

Following points are the measures a teacher can apply in her/his classroom to pull /attract the students:
  • We can conduct an activity-based study for chapters.
  • Giving them responsibilities and making leaders (chance to everyone) work in a group.
  • Sessions of audio/visual classes attract students e.g. storytellings, adventure activities/tours.
  • Taking a value-based class and practical knowledge- Learning by doing.
  • Asking them to find solutions to problems and in return rewarding them.
  • Appreciating always, whatever they do or submit work and knowledging their efforts in the class.
