Poor instructors in technology courses
Your problem is probably universal.
Teaching, and teaching methods,
have never been seriously studied.
It is likely that a teacher in a
technology class is not there because
he or she is a great teacher, but
most likely has been a great student.
In watching your 'teacher' you are
actually witnessing the performance
of the smartest student in your class.
Any instruction you glimmer from his
or her performance, you aquire by
The stupidest teachers do next to
nothing other than repeatedly put
example after example on the board,
(I can look in a book to find example
after example.) and add no insight,
or even focus on the concept the
lesson is supposed to cover.
'Education' is a vast problem
I agree with your perspective that
education is over studied.
To modify my comment:
Education is under studied because
it is incompletely studied.
Fads dominate the education arena.
Their flaws are ignored by the talentless
dimwits who dominate the education
colleges. They are implemented without
testing or proving them.
An overwhelming percentage of
'Education Philosophy' is actually dogma.
