History Of Teaching
The video starts by showing off a modern teacher, Mr. Matt Jessett, and transitions to teaching history. He said that he always wanted to become a teacher since he wanted a career that would be very friendly, especially with kids.
Teaching has always been important and has undergone some changes in the past generations. For example, the video showed that Australian schools used to be run exclusively by churches, and Philemon Portfont opened the first public school only in 1849.
There were a lot of differences between the education system today and back then. Teachers were very strict, hitting students was allowed, and the educational system sent boys and girls to study different subjects, namely metalwork and home economics.
Today the way of teaching changed a lot with the influx of new technology and the ethical implications of the way of teaching in the past. Teaching is not solely stuck inside the classroom, some schools teach in different languages, and boys and girls have the freedom to choose what subjects they want to study.
Who Taught The First Teacher
The video starts with an introduction that the channel is dedicated to answering people’s questions online. The question of the video was “Who taught the first teacher?”, and it was presented visually by a robotic voice saying the question and answer.
The answer was Aspasia of Miletus, like in the hit film “Assassin’s Creed.” The video stated that Aspasia was at the Academy teaching Plato and Aristotle, but it was never stated who among the two students was the first teacher.
The video finalizes with a couple of encouraging words from the female speaker, like, be informed, be confident, etc. These messages were made to advertise their channel more and end the video.
