Intangibles in Teaching Frameworks and Guidelines

Intangibles in Teaching Frameworks and Guidelines

All through schooling and life there is an unwrit and unspoken undercurrent of learning and character building.

It is seen in some schools as moral science instruction or Bible class, or sometimes there is a personality development teacher.

Some teachers understand the importance of the “more than book knowledge” – the worldviews, perceptions and attitudes that they so gently and patiently help to shape.

Until recently institutions held onto a value system and ensured that all their teaching staff understood and tried to impart this. With the advent and dominance of consumerism and the thrust for success, many schools have given up completely on teaching these values that formed the basis of a progressive society.

This can change. These band-aid fixes we have applied to life’s problems are not working anymore. There is a growing seed of discord and discontent. We need to regain the wisdom of old and are doing this more as East meets West and new pockets of intuition and heart-led teachings arise.

Some call this the “hidden curriculum” at play in schools. This curriculum, preserved by these inspired teachers needs to now be brought to the fore and expanded upon. Just like we made Wikipedia work, we must rethink our attitudes to life and our struggles to find the gifts Mother Nature left for us on the way, and come up with a thought framework that lays out this invaluable teaching.

It is this author’s invitation to all teachers interested in having time prove their sensibilities and gut feeling right, that there is more to teaching than just imparting book knowledge.

Let us build this hidden curriculum of life that is better learnt in the dreamy days of youth, for it is "dreams that ought to keep our youth from sleeping" ~ Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.

Transcend provides just the technology needed to make these intangibles a part of the guidelines and metrics by which teachers are groomed and given direction.
