“Extraordinary Educators Influence, Impact and Inspire Students to Grow as Leaders” ―Professor M.S.Rao
“A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart.” ― Anonymous
Every educator intends to teach effectively in the classroom. However, their teaching pedagogy and styles are different. Some educators teach by reading the academic text books. Some educators teach by reading academic books and referring more number of books to share their knowledge with students. Some educators teach by reading academic and reference books and sharing their ideas and insights and experience. However, there are a very few educators who go out of the way by thinking round the clock about their students and sharing their knowledge, experience, ideas and insights and to inspire students. Such educators leave everlasting impression in the minds and hearts of their students. In fact, students prefer listening to lectures from such inspiring educators.
Nowadays, students are more intelligent than educators globally. They are well informed and equipped with technology. The present generation of educators are not technologically savvy. But the young generation of students are technologically savvy. Currently the difference between the educators and students is that educators have immense knowledge and experience whereas students don’t have knowledge and experience of particular disciplines. Hence, students attend teaching sessions to acquire knowledge and experience from their educators with very high expectations. Hence, the educators must understand the aspirations and expectations of the present generation of students and rise up to their expectations to ensure effective takeaways.
Characteristics of Inspiring Educators
"We should learn something and teach something every day of our lives." ― Denis Waitley
Inspiring educators step into the shoes of their students to understand the challenges. They enhance focus in their students and help students dream big. They create spark in their students. They convert their students as better personalities. They inspire and reform the students with negative attitude through counseling. They build positive attitude in students and change the mindset.
Inspiring educators challenge their students to think unconventionally and create excitement about learning. They help students unlock their hidden potential. They explore and experiment new teaching and learning styles. They research a lot to add value to their existing knowledge. They often think about their students. Precisely, they are very passionate to make a difference in the lives of their students.
The ordinary educators build confidence in their students while the extraordinary educators build confidence to enhance contribution to build a better society and world.
The digital technology has changed the face of the world. The educators must reinvent as per the changing times and technologies to update their knowledge to stay relevant and competent to win respect from their students. To conclude, any educator can share their knowledge but only a few passionate educators share beyond their knowledge and experience to influence, impact and inspire students. India needs such inspiring educators to groom students as great personalities and leaders.
"Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength of the nation." ― John F. Kennedy
