I argue that transfer of various skills like understanding, solving and creating are to be transferred from a teacher to a student. Am I alright with these? Should I modify?

      I would agree that a direct transfer of skills from an educator to his/her students definitely occurs. I would also add that students transfer these skills to their peers as well. In my opinion, it's all about creating an atmosphere within your learning space that is conducive for all of these transfers to take place.

        Yes, skills can be transferred from teacher to student but that is just one way it can happen. Skills can also be transferred from student to student, from books to student, from step by step problems that build on previous knowledge and allow for self discovery, and from hands on learning projects that are designed in such a way that self discovery can happen. And these are just the first ones that come to my mind!
