A New Education Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

As a 15 year old student attending a school in Australia, I am well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of modern education. Yet increasingly we are seeing a new type of education - one that takes into account individual learning styles and the thoughts and opinions of the children.

In this style of education, teachers are no longer lecturers, but rather mentors who help children to develop self-learning abilities. With the aids of technology, educational tools and teachers' help, children most often are self-taught.

I believe that this new style of education is the one that will empower children - empower them to not be dependent on adults, but instead find strength and courage within themselves. They can find courage to speak out against potential abuses and to create a future that is for themselves and for the children that they will have. This is a future I hope we have, and I will do all that is in my efforts to make it happen.

Writer Profile

I am a 13 year old boy working to become an author. My love of writing surfaced when I was about 7, and my ambition to become an author has grown and so has my writing (I hope), I feel that writing is the easiest and the most satisfying way to express myself and that words are one of the most precious things, and to stretch them to their very limits, use them in unique ways, is the most expressive form of media. I aspire to one day master this intricate, beautiful language and use them in more creative, wonderful ways. I would greatly appreciate any tips or constructive criticsm on my work, especially from a current or former author. I would recommend writing to anyone looking for an enjoyable hobby or career,and you might be surprised, everyone has a different style of writing, and if you think yours is only average, it might actually be brilliant.
