In my opinion, an Educator’s role is to gather resources and 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. That’s why I have a great Editor;-)
