Jessica Brown, Experience Designer for Business Innovation Factory, speaks about the impact of teacher mindsets and how a shift from a teacher/learner mindset to a mindset in which both the educators and the students can be teachers, empowers students to take agency of their learning.
[MUSIC PLAYING] One of the biggest mindsets that can support students as they dive in to their dreams, their passions is being adaptive, being ready to take in, where students are? Where they want to go? And find ways to create that path together.
Another big thing we always say is we’re not the experts. And we have a lot of knowledge to share but so does everybody in the room. So really kind of dismantling the rigid structure of teacher and learner, so that everybody in the room is a teacher.
Everybody in the room is a learner. Has been really important for me and then I also perch most of my work through the lines of facilitation. So again, that’s all about pulling out the genius that already exist and not so much about me as sage on the stage, giving and delivering knowledge. So those are kind of the mindsets that have helped me.
