Who is Adil Baguirov?
For years being a board member in Dayton school, Adil Baguirov relieved his position for new opportunities. After all, his past works gave a huge contribution to how the education system is and to how it will affect students.
Adil Baguirov Dayton has been telling that education is not finite and it doesn’t begin when the morning bell at school rung and ends at dismissal more so, it doesn’t start on your first day as a kindergarten and finishes on your graduation, it is more of an ongoing process.
What really saddens Adil Baguirov is that, our current education system followed in different parts of the world is more focused on passing the tests, achieving goals and getting the right answers. There are numerous foundational blocks being missed which is critical in developing lifelong learning. And no, this isn’t a new idea introduced in the public instead, it is long overdue and many studies can back this up.
Number 1. Learning should be relevant – it will be easier to learn and grasp new skills in the event that it is something that we need. So to give you an example, students who study how to get the measurements of the area of the land and calculate it to where they will grow a garden need a formula to do so. In one way or the other, they’ll get the formula on their own which can improve their skills and widen their knowledge.
Number 2. Extrinsic rewards – Adil Baguirov do believe that giving people rewards for activities they find enjoyment on are diminishing their motivation. In other words, if your children love reading and they start receiving stars or stickers for reading 30 minutes a day, it is likely that they’ll lose interest and have less pleasure from reading sooner or later.
As a matter of fact, Adil Baguirov Dayton believe that such rewards has to be saved from the time that it is needed in motivating people to do things that they don’t want. In addition to that, the learning associated with grades has become learning for grades only and not for additional knowledge. Truth is, there are countless of students who graduated college with honors but can’t remember the content they’ve learned once the test is done.
Number 3. Group study – through collaborative learning, it pushes students to express themselves, think for themselves while also learning from others in the process. As soon as they leave school, it’ll be more important for students to collaborate with each other. This is why Adil Baguirov Dayton is trying to rule out the tradition of testing every student one by one and make them compete against each other instead, encourage them to collaborate.
