🔗
Don't set goals for your students.
🔗
Ask students what they want to do, and help them achieve that goal.
🔗
If they don't know what to do, give suggestions of interesting things they could do.
🔗
Once they have a goal, just help them learn everything that is needed to achieve that goal
🔗
If they don't have a goal, any attempt to learn is a total and complete waste of time.
🔗
This is because the universe of potentially useful things that can be learnt is infinite, and no human can ever learn everything.
🔗
The only solution, is to try and learn only what seems necessary to reach your goal, and just try to reach your goal instead.
🔗
This approach is called backward design.
🔗
Also, setting overly ambitious goals, is a good idea: the side effects of ambitious goals are often the most valuable thing achieved.
🔗
"Graduating" and "getting a diploma" are not valid goals, because they are useless. A goal has to be either an amazing specific technological or artistic development.
