Sun (yellow), Earth (blue) and Mars (red) in the geocentric and heliocentric models, respectively.

Copernicus came up with the model that has the Sun in the center, and it was a revolution.

A #Copernicus Teacher puts its students in the center, and causes a revolution.

The first time is the hardest.

This is the idea behind the challenge. If you do it at least once, you might do it again. But you need to do it that first time.

In class, I want you to experience vuja-de (the opposite of deja-vu): it is when you have done something a lot of times but you look at it with fresh eyes.

SOME Benefits of student-centered learning (SCL)

  • Students learn important communicative and collaborative skills through group work.
  • Students learn to direct their own learning, ask questions and complete tasks independently.
  • Students are more interested in learning activities when they can interact with one another and participate actively.
