Do You Teach or Do You Educate? was a great video. Being an educator is more important then just being able to teach. An educator is a mentor, an advisor, a guider that guides a person who advises and show the way. I love the statement that was stated in the video "Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive, easy to govern but impossible to enslave" quoted by Peter Brougham. I think I would be a good educator. I will love to mentor the young and guide them in the right direction. I was always teach to but had a few that educated me. I had a mentor, a guider, and an advisor that cared for me and my education. She never gave up on me even when my family and friends did. She was the best teacher and educator that I will always remember. "EDUCATION IS THE KINDLING OF A FLAME NOT THE FILLING OF A VESSEL. -SOCRATES"
Don't Let Them Take Pencils Home. Mr. John post was very good. On the other hand his post was not about pencils. One of his focus was about how teachers will focus on eliminating a problem, rather than promoting a solution to the problem. I think his main focus was about technology and how students should be able to take technology home. Technology is a good thing and can help students achieve a lot through using many networks. Mr. John made a good point about letting the students use technology but have fun using it.
