    Any advice for someone newly entering the world of education? I'm not a natural teacher, but want to get better.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I am so sensitive to environmental stimuli.

    My use of the word "personalized" was somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I used it because it seems to be one of those eduspeak words of the moment. It seems to be showing up where "differentiation" used to live. One of the ideas I like to push is that all students need IEPs. One of the questions I have is "do all students need to acquire all skills?" Are standards like the CCSS the ones we really should be aiming towards or are there other standards that are more needed that address things like compassion or community?

    Perhaps I read into your statement about a focus on student learning producing better outcomes than a focus on teaching but it seems to imply a critique of both a stringent focus on pedagogical methods AND the content of what needs to be taught. If we focus on student learning we focus on where they are at, what they lack, as you have pointed out, in most cases, but also what they are interested in (if they are interested in anything at all - some students need help finding their interests). Should teachers provide a push or pull? or both?

    Personally, I have always been an independent learner and for that reason see it as an ideal but I realize, partially through MBTI and other psychological instruments and theories, that my ideal isn't ideal for everyone. Even so, I think it is a good model.

    I don't know about the rest of this thread but I made note of "And yes, I am better than most teachers in terms of student learning outcomes, however, this was most definitely not always the case, especially in my earlier years when I focused on teaching instead of student learning" which I find to be a very insightful thought in regards to teaching. I've been reviewing some of my exchanges with forum members over the past year with the goal of finding other teachers. I'm a 10 year veteran second career educator (I was in tbe food and wine biz for 23 years), now a school librarian lookijng to branch into consulting and this idea that you've posted is at the heart of what I would like to offer "personalized" learning and life long learning. So, hey hey!

    Yes I'm trying to teach myself math, python programming, and another language. Math becomes intuitive but there are still rules to remember. For programming I want to memorize the spelling of key words and basically the syntax since I keep having problems which are syntax based. For another language.. yeah I literally want to add as much words a day to my vocabulary as possible. I want to master the concepts of mathematics so I can recall them verbatim as well as the syntax while programming. I don't need to master everything though. For the language I just want to understand what the words mean upon hearing them.

    Hello I spoke to you before about memory and recall. I just wanted to know if you have any links to information about that?

    I am a psychologist (forensic), and what happens in asia do happen anywhere else. But some people tend to mask lots of things just to prove their lives are way more contented than everyone else on this planet. I notice that you are into cognitive psychology. Then you would understand that kind of behaviour. I don't want to write its term here.

    it has nothing to do with the country/community he's living in. he's just one of those rare lucky people who have everything good going on for him. I am in that part of region where he's living too, but I have witnessed the worst parts of people's attitude,. so either he is just so fortunate or we all are the unfortunate ones

    Can I check out some of your art sometime if you got any up? It'd be fun. So rare too. I don't know anyone with any real interest in it.

    You won't let anyone see your work, so everything you say here matters not, since it's just your personal bias.

    I can express far more than my technical ability allows me to - because my technical ability does not control my expression. this is what you are unable to conceive.

    It's not as constrained as you'd like it to be either. You're very technically-minded, I get that. I don't think you really understand expression though, and how it transcends technicality. This is probably because you are not a very expressive person, and while that's not a fault, it is a limiting quality in its own right artistically.

    eh, that is simply arguing conceptual semantics. we view these things differently - neither pov is wrong.

    I struggle at verbatim recall. Actually I have never really tried it since it's better to phrase in your own words. I know the method works since I just used it today but I'm starting to think you just have genetics that allow you to remember better. 100 in an hour? I did only 36 in around 2 hours. I did have to gather the knowledge first and not just review though. How long have you been practicing memorizing?

    How much do you remember about a term? If for example you were to remember the term evolution, what would you recall? Would you recall "gradual change in a population due to variation and natural selection."Or would you recall something like:

    Evolution:

    variation - most populations of organisms contain individuals which vary from one another.
    over production - mosts organisms produce more young than will survive to adulthood
    struggle for existence - Because populations do not generally increase rapidly in size there must therefore be considerable competition for survival between the organisms
    survival those with advantageous characteristics are more likely to survive this struggle
    advantageous characteristics inherited Better adapted organisms are more likely to reproduce successfully passing on the advantageous characteristics to their offspring
    gradual change - over a period of time the proportion of individuals with the advantageous characteristics in the population will increase compared with the proporition of individuals with poorly adapted characteristics, and the poorly adapted characteristics may eventually be lost
