Did You Know? 3.0
The information was very interesting. The facts that were flashed across my face made me look at the video over, and over again. The United States needs to speed up a bit on education. It's crazy how China has more honor students than we have people. I never knew the first commercial text message was sent in 2002.Its really scary that in the year 2049 a computer will have more knowledge than a human. I guess it's true that computers will take over the world.
Mr. Winkle Wakes
Now this video basically shows how even after a 100 year slumber, Mr.Winkle could only find comfort in a school. The office building, and hospital had evolved with technology. The school was just as he remembered it. The so called tradition of teaching. Computers are a very important part of education. Technology is forever changing and we should encourage our children to learn new things. We should surely use computers and other multi-media devices in our classroom lectures.Not only for the students, but for ourselves also to keep up with the ever changing world.
Wow! Looks like I need to move to Finland. As children we are taught that reading, science, and math are the three most important subjects. It's now hard to believe that when the dropout rate is twenty five percent. Seems we are not as educated as we think.I really would love to get a lesson plan from some teachers, and some techniques to use so that my classroom will have the upperhand. Maybe that way my peers can see this and want to do it also. It would start a trend and before long the U.S will be right there with Finland. ON TOP!
I absolutely love this video. The rural part of Georgia is connected to the world!I love the fact that the classroom is not just standard desk with blackboard.Every student has access to a computer. I believe that children of the next generation will learn so much more using digiteen, and other computer literate techniques.I appreciate how Mrs. Davis states that you don't have to know everything to teach, because in some cases the children will have something to teach you.The education system needs to jump on this and Harness the Students Digital Smarts.
Sir Ken Robinson
First let me say that Sir Ken Robinson made those 19 minutes very interesting.It states that we as educators are educating others on things we know nothing about.Teachers tend to place the academics as the important subjets, and Art, Music, and Dance are just electives.People are so programmed to believe that you develop creativity. This is not true. Creativity is a trait that yyou are born with, and everybody has a creative background. Some people will not step up and do what they love in fear that what they believe is wrong.All subjects are important as a whole. We as eucators need to teach whole body not just literacy. Dance, music, and art should all be at the top of the education hieracy.
