“You can’t belittle people into agreeing with you.” — Kathy Jackson
Nobody likes Derp. We all want to fight it. But how do we do that effectively without doing more harm to the people we are attempting to educate? Ballistic Radio is happy to welcome Kathy Jackson from the Cornered Cat on the show to talk about this very issue.
In order to educate people you must first build a relationship with them that allows them to trust what you have to say. Often, the anonymity of the internet fosters a dialog that drives potential students away instead of builds the connection necessary for them to learn. Kathy discusses the need for caution when dealing with new and naive folks and students. She discusses the responsibilities of instructors who teach new students and fostering a mutual learning environment.
If you really want to fight the Derp, don’t miss out on learning the most effective way to do it.
