I believe "social interactions" are the greatest link to the mastery of intellectual skills. As an educator, I feel most effective when I simply initiate and guide the interactions that engage students in the learning process. When I have done my job right, the students emerge as people who can discuss, reorganize and connect information and are genuinely motivated to learn.
