Who is Adil Baguirov?
Adil Baguirov has vacated his chair in Dayton school as being one of its board members, seeking 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.
Education is not a finite process and it does not start at morning bell then stops at dismissal particularly it does not start on the first day of your kindergarten and ends on your graduation day on college and years ahead, Adil Baguirov Dayton has seen this already.
What is saddening for Mr. Adil Baguirov in this modern world is that, passing the exams, giving the correct answers and achieving goals are the main focus of our education system. As a matter of fact, there are countless of things that are being missed in the process which can later develop lifelong learning. These aren’t new ideas that were presented because in reality, there are several studies and researches that can support this.
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. They will surely get the formula in one way or the other, which will improve broaden their learning and improve their skills.
Number 2. Extrinsic rewards – extrinsic rewards given for activities that people enjoy can cause the decrease of their motivation, which is believed by Adil Baguirov as well. To make it simpler, if you have a kid who enjoys reading and has become a habit for him/her to read 30 minutes a day, giving them rewards will cause it to have less pleasure from reading.
Adil Baguirov Dayton believe that these rewards should be reserved when it is only needed most to motivate people to do things they don’t enjoy much. Aside from that, learning associated with grades becomes learning only for grades and not for added knowledge. In reality, there are so many students who have graduated college with flying colors but, they couldn’t remember the content of what they have learned after the test.
Number 3. Group study – collaborative learning environments actually encourages students to listen to others, think for themselves and explain what they think. By the time they leave school, it is crucial for students to initiate a collaborative study. Still with our current education system, it insists to test them one by one and at the same time, encourages them to compete instead of collaborate, which is something that Adil Baguirov Dayton likes to rule out.
