In my opinion, an educator’s role is to gather resources and to present them in a way that is based on the interests and the learning styles of students (or children in your home if you’re homeschooling).
I also believe that it’s better for an educator to facilitate learning rather than to teach. A facilitator is more like being a cheerleader, once you’ve provided information. A teacher ‘talks at’ rather than ‘with’ their students. It’s a hierarchal approach and undiplomatic.
As a documentary filmmaker, I’m an educator of sorts. My medium of digital film appeals to visual as well as auditory learners. As I see it, the tricky part is enabling viewers to come to their own conclusions about the content rather than being pedantic about it.
