Gigglebit: The futility of teaching

10 Sep 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today’s Gigglebit looks at times when a teacher might have an existential crisis asking himself/herself whether he or she can handle the idea that they are meant to be the infallible beacons of truth to their students.

Can they and their students just accept that not every teacher can be right all of the time?

Well, maybe not every teacher …
