We Discuss: Education


We Discuss: Education

by Dwiputri Pertiwi


As you may already know, Whiteboard Journal is introducing a new offline program called We Discuss so that we can interact more with our readers. The theme of our first meeting is education, and to give you an idea about the kinds of topics we are going to cover, please refer to the details below.


What is education? We associate “studying” with formal institutions and “learning” with something that interests us. Are the two concepts really different, or are they interrelated? Are there things that we need to know, or should knowledge be customized according to one’s personal needs?

1. Sources

– What do we need to educate ourselves?
– What can we get from formal institutions (official curriculum) or other sources available in society, especially with the rise of Internet lectures and websites?

2. Educator

– What is the role of an educator? A teacher or a coach/guide?
– To be recognized as an “educator” does one need to be formally educated, or can they also learn from experience?

3. Learner

– What is the difference between a “student” and a “learner”?
– Are we really capable of educating ourselves with the amount of information available on the Internet?
