Education and its Process

In the first experiences in the classroom, I was able, through observations, experiences and conversations with students, to create a notebook that culminated in difficulties, notes and a series of ideas, which was composed with the aim of writing down what was most crucial in the teaching of subjects and in the exercise that is carried out in the practice of didactics at the moment when the teacher apprehends the content through its linguistic and artistic elaboration to the student with beauty, satisfaction and effort.

I noticed that the students looked at the teachers, like a zebra watching the arrival of a lion and, not knowing what would happen next, refrained from any sudden movement that could reveal its existence. 

This awakened my gaze to what I will call "confused information synthesis." The book The Culture of Education by Jerome S. Bruner adds that: “Being able to “go beyond the information” given to “find things out” is one of life's few unsullied joys. One of the great triumphs of learning (and teaching) is organizing things in your head in a way that lets you know more than you "should." And that requires reflection, meditating on what you know. The enemy of reflection is maddening rhythm – the thousand images.”

I believe that modern education is undergoing a synthesis of confusing information; the symbols of knowledge (Teachers, Intellectuals and etc) are not managing to find the place of balance between new knowledge and old knowledge, thus losing several cultural and familiar references, giving way to what is unprecedented, so say, the novelty.

Well, the concept of education is something that changes from time to time and with the discussion between intellectuals and groups that speak on behalf of civil society and prevent them from speaking and representing themselves in the educational, political and civil spheres.

If we look at what the Greeks historically accomplished in the field of education, it was something wonderful, a work to be applauded and recognized, because from a very early age they sought to guide young people towards moral and intellectual virtues, thus preparing generations and generations of minds and spirits. who served their people with love, gratitude, respect and knowledge.

We can observe the model of education that was also developed by Christian and Islamic societies, etc., which prepared groups of human beings for more complex tasks during their lives.

The Professor Seyyd Hossein Nars in his book “Intellectual Autobiography, The Philosophy of Seyyed Hossein Nasr” (Chicago: Open Court, 2001). He describes his upbringing and upbringing as a Muslim or boy from a prosperous family in Teeera. He took possession of religious, cultural and poetic knowledge already in the family base, after that, Syeed reports the contacts and knowledge obtained through soirees, coming from the best that there was in Europe by its most illustrious representatives of schools such as: Positivism, Marxism and Existentialism.

Thinking about an educational aspect, that gives the student the opportunity to venture out and make education their best and appropriate choices, that's what makes me worried about a modern education, because I feel more and more that it freezes the sense of real preparation and freedom, transforming the student just like a configured part of an electric car.
