Compare and contrast teacher and student centered learning strategies.
For teacher centered, the focus is on the teacher. Generally speaking, lecturers and students do not talk or collaborate much. Its like talk to oneself. Although there is a more recent version of this model, in its original form it is the teacher who holds absolute power and the students are “empty ships”. Whose task is to absorb information provided by teachers through passive hearing.
Generally, teachers are leaders who know the ultimate power; children are people who live in a language that must take what he says and can say it back, while still silent, to show that they have complied with the will of the Great Instructor.
Well, so that’s the extreme for the teacher.
Furthermore you will encounter teacher-based instruction in classroom form with lecture structure, or some subjects where students need to be given critical critical information before they can do much with it.
Student centered, the focus is on students.
But that does not mean that teachers do not lead the room, or that students choose the subject and start experimenting without guidance. Instead, this approach usually involves communication and interaction between both sides in which teacher and student, as well as students through group work and other collaborative activities.
If you think in terms of learning goals, emphasis will often involve students to help develop critical thinking, query skills, ability to connect class topics to real-life concerns, come up with good questions to investigate subjects, and learn from mistakes made along the way. Other features and features that focus on student learning are the built-in benefits of this approach.
