TEACHER AS A FACILITATOR IN LEARNING

         The role of teacher is changing in smart and active learning methodologies. Now teacher is as a facilitator in learning. Teaching and learning are being modified due to innovations in education. In this article we are discussing about teacher's role in changing learning environment.
      Teaching is the well known word for teachers. Teachers know the meaning of this word and know how to perform teaching. Sometimes they do not know the difference between teaching and facilitating in learning and it make a distance between the students and teachers. We have to understand the difference between “teaching” and ‘facilitating in learning” because the both words are correlated with each other. Teaching is an activity which is helping the student in learning. In several classes teachers go to the class, teach the students, supply the homework and do some daily routine activities and “finish”. How much achieve the students, it is another question and it is not a matter for teacher….!  Why.....?

     Instead of “to help the students in learning” or “facilitate the students in learning” is a quite fascinating and gentle concept. If teacher think that every student should be sound in his subject is his duty than teaching-learning process become innovative, active and interesting. In our classrooms teachers have to change his attitude about teaching process.
Teachers should become mentors and they should make students learn. Teaching means teacher is doing the act of teaching.  Learning means students are doing the act of learning. 
  

            Discussing about Active Learning Methodology, we find the importance of facilitating in learning. In active learning methodology, teachers help the students in learning. Thus the entire classroom environment is changed. Actually active learning methodology focuses on helping in learning and facilitating in learning. Active learning methodologies include several activities in classroom; such as reading, making mind maps and group presentation and engage the student whole time. Active learning methodologies are very effective to find out students creativity and talent. Active learning methodologies are very smart methodologies very helpful to students in learning. 

 Active learning methodologies and active learning classroom techniques provide very smart teaching learning opportunities to teachers. If teacher is able to create an active learning environment in his class, he has to help the students in learning in various ways. Active learning methodologies are able to make teaching very smart and easy. Teachers may use collaborative learning and try to do an exciting experiment in his class. In modern learning environment, we see that “learning” is a more popular word than “teaching”. Teachers have to understand the modern trends in teaching learning process. Teachers have to make learning more interesting and interactive, so that students may learn better.
