Is this a fair comparison to fact-push style teaching? Is it just me or does it seem that our entire education system is set up to fit this mold. While I think this is still a valid teaching method in certain situations, we have so many other options in the 21st century. In a world where experiential learning is so easy, why are our schools still set up like it is 1899. We have the ability to make learning more real and allow a deeper understanding of almost any topic just because facts are so easily available. If you understand a topic at a deeper level, you can’t help but learn the facts along the way. So let’s stop making it harder for teachers to do this and give them the flexibility to create experiences for students that help them understand content instead of memorizing facts.
