The Facebook Platform Group demonstrates research showing how educators can use AI for three different types of teaching.
In Machine Learniing What Is Online Learning
When I first started doing teaching for my company less than a year ago, I was using materials that were obviously outdated and outdated within a matter of weeks. I was excited that an educational format was there, and more motivated to show that as an entrepreneur I could start a technology-based school. However, as I learned more and more about what was possible, I became increasingly disappointed with the core qualifications and values involved with the content. In fact, when it came to content, it was almost completely devoid of my core beliefs and values. From a corporation standpoint, I also learned the materials were teaching certain strategies that weren’t all in alignment with the goals of an American business or the overall understanding of an individual who was trying to start a business.
Now that I have almost three years of teaching experience and that I have enough of a foundation to create my own content, I feel my responsibilities and priorities are somewhat better. Which is not to say that there aren’t challenges. One of my former students stopped coming to classes a few months ago. His main reason for not coming back was because he was not convinced I was offering the best content for business, or that I was teaching more than business strategy, but was instead teaching the techniques of what I had viewed as a typical business program. He said he didn’t think there was a lot of substance in the lessons I presented, and that he didn’t believe I was taking anything seriously. It was frustrating, and for someone who is in the education business, it was tough to face such a true critique of my content in the face of so many supporters and friends. However, I understand what he meant. Unfortunately, a small minority of students can’t see beyond the surface, and stop recognizing the true value of the education I was offering.
Moving forward, I don’t want to be the kind of person who expects students to become like me or hold the beliefs and values I do. I love entrepreneurship. When I was interviewing for this job and talking about my passion, one of the reasons people keep coming back to me is to discuss “the best companies” and the ideas they are focused on. More and more today, I look at it as collaboration. So, if we’re looking at building a company, I really want to be able to see a student who knows more than I do. My role should be about using technology in a way that benefits the people in our classes, not just telling them how to do something to get the job done.
However, in today’s world of cutting-edge education, we can no longer hide behind cliché gimmicks. I’m not saying that we can’t have fun or make learning interesting. We can do it both; but it has to be part of our core mission as educators to present material that you would find valuable and interesting.
To end with a more positive piece of advice: that the majority of students do learn and grow from the company experience, but you can’t take that for granted. One of the best teacher I have had was George Ferris, who founded Hult International Business School. He reminded us that while it’s important to teach, it’s also important to take a critical eye and reflect on our learning. Rather than trying to convince our students to go after their entrepreneurial dream, we should be teaching them the way to develop a positive work ethic, work ethic that will actually be useful. That is the most important thing you can do as a teacher, and something that is often lost in modern day business as a subject.
