Mohammed Al-Amleh21316107"The Roles of the Teachers, Students and EnvironmentThat Lead towards Genuine Learning"Dr. Rana SurakhyAugust 24, 2013I have been reading various articles about how to achieve what is called "Genuine Learning" which is the main goal of the educational process or pedagogy. Through the -somewhat- deep reading and analyzing the goals and aspects that will ultimately lead to this term (genuine learning), I noticed several ideas, factors, theories, elements and views that intercrossed to share altogether in order to support and reach to the point of deep understanding and deep learning as well. The writers of these articles wrote and explained deeply to convey their ideas about such an aim that we all should seek for- that is genuine learning. They all focused on this idea and shared or participated in providing theories, offering solutions, changes in some strategies, and giving new ideas that will lead to our goal. For me and as a reader to these works, I totally agree with them about their concerns towards these very crucial points of view that will make the great shift and change in our pedagogical regimes. All the aspects and the views that they discussed are fruitful and beneficial ones and they altogether would in the end make a great success in this field of life which is education produces deep learning and understanding -that if these views and theories came into real life and backgrounds.

Despite this fact, I really consider those three previous elements as they already available tools that for sure will make the shift and change, if they do what they should do in the proper ways. In this paper, I am going to present and state the roles of teachers, students and environment that can achieve real understanding and learning regardless of the other factors that have main impacts on this process. In other words, what are the distinguishing features that the teacher should have, what strategies that he or she should follow with his or her students and what should he do to make use of the environment during this process?To begin with, I think that the good, successful, teacher is that one who lets students try and take the chance to express themselves in the ways how they want to share their own existing understanding of any new piece of knowledge or information. That requires the teacher to be patient and good listener to his or her students. By doing so, students will feel more relaxed in expressing and talking about their own experience and knowledge that they already have, and each one of them won't feel...
