Sometimes, someone finds themselves overwhelmed with the amount of information they are supposed to retain after class. I am a student myself, but being a university student has enabled me to help all my teenage friends with studying, and my not-so-slighty older friends with…well, technology. More than often, I find myself overwhelmed by the process of trying to fit carefully moulded-according-to-my-mind attained knowledge into their mind.
Everyone is different and sometimes I have struggle using those differences to my advantage when it comes to “teaching”.
It’s incredible how our minds can act like sifts — leaving out valuable chucks and bits of information. Teaching is all about breaking those information crumps down into thin dust and letting them get sifted all the way to the Grand Bowl Of Knowledge. Each mind is a sieve, and it is painfully unique at that.
