Discipline Through Punishment By: Ahmed Eric Ali - ESP Teacher, HIPF Day 3: Teaching for Understanding Institutional transition to the learning paradigm Emphasis on Delivery of Content Emphasis on Learning with Understanding
By: Eng. Sanjay Rawat - Education Coordinator, HIPF “Knowing vs. Understanding” “Knowing is just to memorize the facts but understanding means the integration of information to make a concept. Knowing the facts and doing well on tests of knowledge does not mean we understand. If you learn by knowing, that means you know the facts but if you learn by understanding, that means you understand the meanings of the facts. When you understand something you not only know if that something is true or false but you also know why it is true or false. If you understand you can judge yourself and know when and when not to use which you know.”
