This video is extremely interesting. Teaching students how to be able to gain knowledge rather than just rote memorization is something that I have been struggling with. As a teacher, it is so easy to lecture and expect students to remember what you said, and produce this information on to a test. However, this is not teaching students any skills other than just memorizing something. They are not learning to become hands on with information. They are not questioning anything, or becoming engaged in learning, or being excited to pursue knowledge. They are merely memorizing information to pass a test. So the struggle is how to present information to students that will engage their learning. I totally agree with how the students in this video feel. Many times in my own education I have played on my computer, or ditched class just because I could. However, that is not what the true value of school is. Students should want to be in class, and should feel valued. I want to create a schooling environment where the students are creating a discussion amongst themselves about the material they are learning. I want them to question and become excited about gaining knowledge. The question is, how? I am constantly trying to push myself to create an atmosphere that is accepting of students and interesting to them so they will want to manipulate the text by questioning it or talking about it. In our technologically driven world, students are quickly becoming disengaged in learning and more and more infatuated with becoming significant (through Youtube, Instagram, reality shows, Facebook...). For our students today, they are more concerned with how many people liked their photo, or how many people saw their snapchat versus learning about novels or writing papers. In the classroom today, we need to find a way to connect to students through technology and make them feel significant.
