When I studied at school they taught us that if you encounter a bear you should just lie on the ground and wait till it leaves

it is! Playing dead will work if you're being attacked by a mother grizzly defending her cubs. But it is the wrong thing to do if you're being attacked by a predatory bear. If a bear attacks (particularly a black bear) in an offensive manner and physical contact is made, fight for your life.
