How can you promote independence of thought and action if your methods are exclusively teacher directed and classroom based?

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.

    imagine a perfect world where every time a learned made a comment or asked a question, they were rewarded for commenting or asking.

    i dont mean that every comment or question would result in manufactured praise: i mean every comment or question would be turned into an opportunity to give the learned something interesting or exciting to think about; an instantaneous, collaborative learning environment.

    this is something any teacher can practice doing, so we dont have to wait for a perfect world.

    and the best part is, you can teach new teachers how to practice doing this using **exactly the same technique** that you are trying to teach them.

    this i think would result in a more organically engaged, stimulating classroom environment. and im sure that no part of this is a new idea, i just havent ever witnessed it (actually i can think of perhaps one or two teachers that were able to pull it off. those were fun classes, too.)

      this is the second time today that “learner” has turned into “learned” in my comment, im sorry. theyre close together on the keyboard, but at this point im going to check for a crumb jammed in near a key or something.
