Children need our Presence not only our presents.

What children need more.
The knowledge is indeed the basis of the humanistic evolution in education but not when it is alone without being escorted with personal will of spiritual/ethical communication with the students.
modern theories and electronic devices,new ways of approaching the gnostic material are so widely spread
nowadays and almost all schools and institutions are provided with them.also the moder generation educators are indeed familiar with the above products and skills but we seem to realise that our pupils/trainees are
more and more distant and indifferent during the lessons.
We ask why and try to solve this question in group dialogical therapies but still no adequate answer is to be given...and the solution seems to be obscure.
Here is the answer of the philosophicaly pedagogical approach:
It is time that teachers should start philosophising ie try to dig inside them and think and adopt the method of getting closer to the "cosmos" of their students.
Finding out that the children need not so much the technological presents but our presence in person and in their emotional field.
Yes technology is a very important add to our teaching procedure but when alienised from the humanistic interest becomes a cold robotic preaching which instead of attracting the spirit of the students it drives them to the opposite edge.
The question that may occure now could be this:Do we have the time needed in a classroom with 20-30 children to approach each one and spend our presence with them?
This could be answered as follwing:"When there is a will,there is a way"
Here are some tips on how we could do so:
~Making a board in classroom where the pupils could anonymously hang their needs,complaints,difficulties.
(this may be a bit riscy depending on the level and status of our attendees)
~Making questionaires every month or two where the children could write either anonymously or in name in which point they would like to be helped at.
(those questionaires are to be handed to the teacher)
~Dedicating a day per semester in each lesson when the teacher and the children could interactively give feedback to each other.
In this ways the classmates do come closer and see that all have more or less the same needs of ethical support an emotional communication.Moreover the teachers get to know better what their pupils are from inside out,correct their character and thus become better educators.At the begging and at last education should and can mean the pedagogy which is knowledge harmonically combined with pure interest for the inner cosmos of every student as well for the class as a whole group.
We know since the time we teachers were students that the way we were approached by out teachers inspired us or not to love or hate the lessons given by them.
And of course as we get even more and more modernised in technical things but still we must not forget that no matter how expensive or modern or "cool" a new present of technology in a class may be,no matter how well teachers know how to use it there still be the great need of the moral/ethical/spiritual connection that will help the technology to play its role the best possible way.
