For a long time, education looked like this.

The teacher was the authority, sprinkling information on thirsty students.

Paulo Freire likened traditional teachers to bank tellers, doling out information in frugal doses.

Students were considered sheep, needing to be led.

Then, some people said, “Stop!”

Maybe things were out of order.

Maybe students could work to build their own understanding.

Maybe students had something to say, something that needed saying, and the saying of which would allow them to educate themselves.

They could communicate and collaborate.
