This is an amazing thing to think about for teaching. Sometimes as teachers, we become so involved in what we need to teach the students and what worksheets/lessons we want them to do. Maybe, if we allow the students to be the teachers, or allow them to choose the assignments they work on, they will have more passion for it. The teacher needs to be a facilitator, and an observer, but maybe the students will do better if they are working on something they want to and are self motivating. This is an interesting concept that I will try to work in to my curriculum for self motivation and autonomy of the students.
There are so many amazing things I got out of this video. I had never thought of the education system as a factory line. Now that I have, I see how inappropriate the way we teach our students today is. We should reform the schooling. More and more kids are being medicated for ADHD. This video explained that this could be because we live in such a stimulating, exciting world. There is so much technology and exciting ideas floating around, then the students are penalized for being interested in the world. Learning needs to be as engaging as the world to interest and engage the students. The schools need to have the students work together as well. Collaboration is a huge part of the real world, and students need to share ideas and thoughts throughout their learning to really get excited about it. In my classroom, I need to allow the students to be engaged with exciting information given to them in a variety of different ways.
