Morgan Bayda's post
In this post there is a video by Dan brown about why he dropped out of school. It explains how higher education has developed from being primarily for the upper class to being obtained by anyone with the funds to acquire access to the education. Now even though the accessability to these Universities and Institutes have changed, the method of teaching has not. Our society in the 21st century has continued to change with the ever growing advancement of technology. If we do not incorporate this technology into our classroom we will be doing exactly what Dan was talking about to our students. We will expect them to know the information we have them read are that we let fall out of our mouths durring lecture. This technique is not learning, it is memorization. Being a math teacher, or planning to become a math teacher, I feel that books and paper are still an important learning tool. Practice is how people learn mathematics. The internet is how we can share our solutions and learn from each other's mistakes. Like Morgan I would not have dropped out of school like Dan did but I strongly believe in communication inside and outside the classroom.
Two questions that can change your life
Two questions that can make you reflect on what is important to you:
What is your sentence?
Was i better than yesterday?
These two questions are the basis for motivation. What motivates us? Everyone has different motivation. My sentence is "He is doing his best to make his wife and kids' future everything they could want." This is my sentence today but can always be revised by the second question every day, Was i better than yesterday?
