Teacher is like a philosopher who guides his student. He is responsible to be aware about growth and development of the students.

yes and some of a teacher doesn't realize they have so much power and influence over their students, some of them behave like students are just a toys of their's, and then students does not realize it's about humanity and give up on studying.

We never forget what we learned in school, only what we crammed in school. The bad news is, we didn't learn that much.

This is definitely true!
I know because my dad was a teacher and I have been oppurtuned to have met people my dad had taught

A teacher can give sunshine and water, or they can shade the student and deprive them of hydration. Education is in need of a reform and I believe even the idea of a teacher could change. A teacher could be a mentor, or a star that guides an individual toward a goal. I believe in what you're saying. A true teacher is aware and connected.

I believe that educational psychology is essential inorder for us to understand the behavior of every human being - to be more patient with every differences we encounter in each individual. It will also teach us how to deal with every person we get along, and it will help us understand ourselves for us to become a better person.

The founder of the "Sigmund Freud University" in Vienna used to be my landlord. They were also running a Psychology Center for children there and they were using some really warm and supportive techniques to teach the kids. Supporting kids early in their psychological development can really yield amazing results. Your post reminded me of that.

I believe without doubt that psychological education is one of the bases of success and development of an individual, excellent post!

Thanks for amazing sharing! Please post more this thema :)

The term 'academy' was coined by a guy named Plato. He created a school called The Academy where students would join him under an apple tree for deep and worthwhile lectures and discussions. He had a student for over twenty years his name was Socrates.

People need to learn to pass the knowledge down more efficiently. We can see the significance from the time of Plato, Socrates, Alexander the Great, Pythagorean. They understood the importance of mentorship and nourishment.

Schools are our gardens, and if we don't nourish our seeds properly, we'll sooner or later have to begin all over again.

Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, many teachers are still just experts in their area (for example, mathematics) but don't know how to pass the knowledge to their students or how to maintain a positive learning environment. The importance of educational psychology for solving this is huge. Cheers!

psychology should be studied at early age so kids are educated about it! This would decrease bully strikes and many negative other behaviors!

education is the essential for a better future and a better understanding of everything

Education is such a broad area which can be complex. Learning is very individual, knowing how to bridge the gap between knowledge and action is key. Having the right state of mind can help students with overcoming obstacles that prevent them from learning. Education is a fascinating field that will continue to evolve and change as technology disrupts the way we learn.

I love your post, a lot of truth in your point of view. One remembers his brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to the one who touches our feelings.

There are many countries that apply the contributions of educational psychology, however, there are still those who do not know or simply do not dare to implement, this is experienced significantly in underdeveloped regions, the learning process takes place exactly as it did 50 years ago , although the population is not the same and is exposed to different stimuli. Interesting post

Thanks for sharing such a nice topic regarding the psychology. I would love to read more post about you.

Great post! I'd love to know more, As a full time (after-school) private music teacher, I've been surprised on how hard it is to find concrete research on effective methods of teaching, and given that I have no formal training on how to teach, It's been a long slog of trial and error so far of figuring out what works for people.
