EDUCYCLE – ENVIRONMENTAL
LEARNING OF THE FUTURE

EduCycle is an educational augmented reality game for school children. It teaches children how to reduce their personal carbon footprint by simulating their energy, food and traffic choices in the game’s physical map board. Players can then see their choices come alive on the mobile app. The main objective is to balance between human and environmental needs by making smart choices with limited resources.

Edublocks

EduBlocks are the tokens of the game.The 3D printed and AR tagged blocks all represent factors that impact the environment’s CO2 levels.

Game Board

A physical game board that represents the gaming environment. EduBlocks are placed on the map and scanned in order to finalize the choices.

Application

The augmented reality application where choices come alive. Children can choose which tokens to place on the game board and see how their actions affect the augmented reality game.

    Hello! By reason of you because your articles! This is very absorbing! Carry on with to eradicate more, with impatience I wishes gap exchange for news from you.

    Schools shouldn’t have grades at all if there was no grading there would be no failing, if there were no failing there would be no kids believing they can never succeed. And schools need to do a lot more for their students I am going into high school, and at my current middle school they do not do much about bullying. I had a friend who went to the principles office three times about the same person and they did almost nothing to help she went twice for verbal abuse and once for cyber bullying, they asked the kid to leave her alone. That’s it. He did not have any consequences. Speaking of consequences, we have lunch detentions, Iss ( in school suspension ), out of school suspension, and you can be permanently expelled as well. A lot of kids try to get Is because they don’t make you do ANY work at all. They say they do, and sometimes they bring you a work sheet but the teachers who run Is let you sleep, or have free computer time. And being suspended is not a punishment. You get a few days off from school. Basicyly you usually don’t get in much trouble for anything unless it is REALLY bad. Like when a kid set the garbage can in the boys bathroom on fire, when a girl took a picture of another girl changing in the locker room, when someone stole a clay during tool for on the art room, and at the rec night stabbed another student in the shoulder with it, etc… Schools in Janesville suck and I think all schools could use a lot of MAJOR improvements . They also will hire pretty much anyone. Next year thery are moveing some 8th grade teachers to high school, and 1st grade teachers to 8th grade. I have hated school for as long as I can remember because it was hard for me to understand, and focus ( no I don’t have any learning disabilities or anything my 1st grade teacher actually thought that I did and asked my parents to take me in to get tested or whatever and there is nothing wrong with me, I don’t take, or need to take any medications I just don’t learn the same as most other students ) I hate google class room, and USA test prep, and common cores, and all of that because they don’t help me. I wishs they had us read more, and write more, and draw, and paint, but I know that a lot of other student wouldn’t agree because they might not learn like me. I would love for every students main classes to be revolved around what they want to be / do with their life like music, photograpy dance, sports, art, technology, science, etc. Thank you prince ea now I know that its not just me who doesn’t learn by listening to 45 minute lectures and doing work sheet and stem word’s. ☺ ❤✌

    *get more times to enjoy to be calm for studies
    *let teachers know what are the dreams of a student
    *give time for art,dance,music etc
    *and let thee read all the comment in this website

    As part of my degree we have to write an assignment based on how we would reinvent childhood. I called for a re-design of our curriculum. In fact not a curriculum but a framework for life. Teaching children the vital skills and knowledge such as how to vote or pay a bill . Children aren’t taught but are shown how to navigate this complicated world by being out in the community rather than shut away in classrooms for hours on end. For example, they are taught citizenship by participating in their society rather than being kept separate from it, maths by solving problems they are likely to incur rather than how to find the value of ‘x’ which has never been useful to me apart from when I had to sit a standardised test and guess what…I got it wrong. Children are experiencing educational bulimia where they consume information but before they can fully digest, they are forced to regurgitate it in a test. Children’s mental health is at an all time low. The anxiety and stress caused by these standardised tests is too much. This has to stop.

    • Alexandre 16 May 2017

      You are actualy so right. We should make the childrens learn how to pay bill, to vote, to be good at their job and that should be the question if it would be on a test not MATH OR ENGLISH! We should learn childrens how to succed on life rather than succed in school…You see that one problem cause, semone could be good at school but could not know what job to choses therre is no classes for that…You know e=if you are an adult and you don’t know nothing about politics or economy you are screwed yet, school do not teach us tosse VERY important subject…I just give somme idea to help maybye they are wrong but at least I am felling that I help.

  • I don't know 6 May 2017

    I’m sorry for my language skills.

    A few days ago in my school we introduced the class to math class when we work out extra points, and we get extra points for a thesis. If not then you get minus points. The class then started working after the idea.
    I think kids have no great motivation to learn. At least like me, like another country. I do not learn anything at school. When I was a little bit I expected the school to learn what I could develop and use in life. My dreams are broken. Not because I was not motivated or persistent. But I did not have the opportunity. One is programming. I can not speak English and need it. My teacher comes to class and teaches nothing. The other is the media. It’s hard and nobody’s teaching here. But if I have the opportunity to write here, at least I want changes here. I feel the world is cheating against me.

  • Thomas 5 May 2017

    little idea…..or just a part of it:
    from 6 years old give very basic, but different kind of lessons: classic ones, but also many others as art, cinema, tecnology, languages, design, biology, music….more and more… and why not, involve kids more with practical lessons instead of only boring theory.
    Move children toward different institute and classrooms where they still follow really a little of some classical lessons: math, grammar etc…but MAINLY their favourite one and keep following their interest and not going against it.
    Keep doing some open test without giving any kind of score to students, that’s just useful for teachers and parents to understand what the child really like to do and follow.
    Just year after year, make sweetly deeper lessons on what student choosed to follow.
    no scores, no competition…..no scores, no pressure….. no votes, no fear to fail, but just passion to discover and follow their own passion
    No homeworks, when you do what you like, your mind remember it immediatly.
    When we are forced to do something or study something is really useless, because our mind will forget everything within few months or even weeks. We erase and reject what we don’t like.
    Well sorry for my English, that’s just a wee part of idea, hope something of it can be useful for somebody else.
    Hugs!!!

  • Tugra 1 May 2017

    i think there should’ve been 8 diffrent classes
    Mathematical
    Language
    Kinetical
    Social
    Visiual
    Natural
    Psychological
    Musical
    First 2 years of education should’ve to be about teachers figuring out what class will the student go and being a good person

    The reason students dont select by themselfs and teachers select is that students’es parents might force the student what class they want the student to go exept for what student wants

    • Alexandre 16 May 2017

      Yea but the teacher might not know the kid enough to choses and the kid might get in the wrong class…The kid should actualy learn more of his passion and dream to choses he need to totaly know himself and be confident on what he choses…

  • Dora 23 Apr 2017

    Waldorf (Steiner) education is one of the solutions too

  • Christopher Ojeda 21 Apr 2017

    Schools should teach students what they want to learn. Here is my idea.. you go to one school to learn the basics of everything you need to know…
    THEN you go to specialized schools for different jobs to learn everything you need to know FOR THAT JOB so you are not being taught extra things you NEVER ever use.

    • James Wischusen 28 Apr 2017

      Yes, but, when would this happen? I myself am a student and should not be forced to make a life changing decision at such a young age.

    • Lana 30 Apr 2017

      Ever since kindergarten I’ve had anxiety from school I’m in 8th grade now I even have to take this sleep medicine because of school I just want it to Change. An I’m also and all my classes are way to easy. It’s not fear to me. And the kids that are put in advance just because they get distracted and are not able to the the work. That’s my statement

    • Jocelyn 1 May 2017

      I agree so much with this.

    • Sierra 3 May 2017

      I totally see where you are coming from but I think hopping from school to school would still be a lot for some students and not everybody knows right away what they want to be and sometime they change up what they want to be, so I think having a specialized school(which does sound really cool) would be difficult to start because as I said before we don’t all know right away what we want to be. so my idea would be as you go on with school say you’re in high school you take the required classes and in the beginning of the year choose 4 jobs you think you might be or are interested in and you’ll be given a number of classes that help prepare for that job or are connected to it and each year you take one of those job courses to better prepare you for that job in the future. you’ll try the courses for the 4 jobs and whichever one you like the most or felt you leaned a lot more from and decide to take on, when you get to college to study for whatever it is you want to be, you will already have a better understanding of how the job is done.

    • Alexandre 16 May 2017

      Yea I think you are right…

  • Ifrah 20 Apr 2017

    The first 3 yrs of school should be focused on improving manners and language and after that students should be given options of what subjects they wanna choose so that they can learn what they are interested in.Schools should cover every single subject from music, learning langauages, diff sports to technology and science etc.And we should always have access to change our subjects so that when the students grow up and they realize that there’s something which they are more good at and have that talent so they can easily change it.And during the first 3 yrs of basic learning, schools should held events of every subject every year so that the students get to know about what inspirits them the most.And students should be given access to all the subjects so that they can learn as many subjects as they want.This is my personal opinion about how the school system should be.I am also a students and i’m interested in a lot more than just what we learn in school but i can’t learn diff stuff because my parents just want me to focus on this school and its sad.There are many other students like me who have so much more potential in other stuff but they are just stuck in this school where they are forced to sit 8 hrs a day.I believe that self growth is more important than just memorizing stuff which many of us forgets right after that class ends then what’s even the point of learning like that.What we need is experience which we’ll never be able to have of we’re gonna just sit in class everyday and then lock ourselves in our houses for studies.I really hope that this system changes.I want to experience this life and this world, i want to learn diff other stuff and not just memorize same thing for a year.

  • ANGIE 20 Apr 2017

    I personally think that the school system is why our world is so unperfect. The school systems main goal was to reach minds and teach but in the real world it is destroying minds and not communicating with all the students correctly. I everyday see one conflict after another and another the school system is never helping stop these conflicts for one reason. Most teacher say they are overwhelmed and need a break. This is because the system is having them teach the way that is too much work and they have most likely not seen all these operations since college. They are tired of all this nonsense.And when it comes to conflicts it is hard for them because they are tired. I think that there should be more teachers and that 1 teacher should be put with about 5 to 6 students in a classroom with either high tech technology or with books. Right know many students are forced to reach other students levels. I am one of a high potential students in my class not trying to bragg or anything. But other students that are not as lucky are sometimes forced to reach me which i think in my case is more pressure for me and my peers. I AM ALL IN FOR HELPING A CRIME LIKE THIS STOP. THIS CRIME HAS BEEN COMMITTED MANY TIMES AND MORE THAN OT SHOULD HAVE. SO I WILL DO ANYTHING BECAUSE EVEN IF I KILL MYSELF IT WOULD BE A BETTER EDUCATION AND FUTURE FOR OUR CHILDREN . IMAGINE IT A WORLD WITH KIDS DONT HAVE TO HATE THE DREADED ALARM TO WAKE UP FOR SCHOOL AND EVEN SOMETIMES HATE A SUNDAY BECAUSE SCHOOL IS THE NEXT DAY. SINCE WHEN HAS THIS BEEN AN ISSUE. ALWAYS HAS. AND IT WILL STOP MAYBE NOT TODAY,TOMORROW, OR MAYBE NOT EVEN IN A CENTURY BUT IF WE WORK HARD AND PUT OUR HEARTS BRAINS AND NOSES TO IT …. BELIEVE IN ME ONE DAY WE WILL ACCOMPLISH OUR GOAL.

  • Sheely 11 Apr 2017

    Prince EA’s right. you will never realize a child’s true potential if he/she’s stuck in a classroom for 13 or more years. The early (formative) years of someone’s life are very crucial in their development. once you take that away from them, that’s it…

    • Uzziel A. Coronado 14 Apr 2017

      I think the school system should be teaching what the students want not things theyre forced to take. For example a engineer shouldnt be fored to take classes and switch those unessesary classes and out useful classes for their career. Also Life skill classes li,e paying bills, sex ed. , etc. I also think homework stops people from enjoying time with their family and friends and stop them from exploring the world outside of school. If schools also taught students to respect one another and find ways to deal things respectfully and peacefully, our country would’nt be in any wars. There is so much to change in the school system, but I hope we the people could find a way to stand and make a change!

    • Uzziel A. Coronado 14 Apr 2017

      If the school system was smart enough they would of not being using textbooks for schools because those textbooks are the reason why we have no more forests. I believe schools should use technology in their classes and leave paper behind because it is more easier and eco-friendly.

    • Juliette 17 Apr 2017

      I am a student who starts to stress around the time everything is due. I wish that teachers could spread out finals, due dates, and assesments. I believe that testing should be when school is the least stressful. Only a few percentage of people can multitask and almost my whole class and I start to loose hope when the end of the year rolls around. For some reason it’s crazy I know, but I perform 35% better in the begging of the school year than when it is close to summer. My teachers, parents, and even the district believes that having everything due durring the last month of school is a great idea, because everyone is excited for the 2-3 month break! That is terrible summer is one more thing on our plate, not to mention after school activities, some people are even playing SCHOOL sports,all of this is happening during the same time the state wants to sit us in front of a blue light computer, and answer 35-45 questions in one sitting, that is crazy. I am only in middle school, but I believe that with schools like this my future doesn’t look bright it looks dull and that we will all just blend into the background year after year after year. Everyone deserves a chance, everyone deserves a light at the end of the tunnel, and everyone needs a reliable education. D
      I will repeat that, education not testing, not pen and paper, not competition, not school, education. I haven’t even mentioned homework.

    • Ebtisam Aldaais 17 Apr 2017

      If we can change the educational program and exchange the degrees certificates into skill certificates or knowledge certificates. For example, in couple of years a student can be certified fur different simulation techniques, computer languages, mathematical methods, dancing methods, musical instruments, art, or hestory. Actually, the market is in need for skills not degrees.

  • Victoria 11 Apr 2017

    The school system is what is destroying the minds of millennials today. Parents think that children don’t know what life is like and that we don’t see the reality of situations. And that is because of the school system. Most parents want to shield their children from the bad things of the world but, these are the things kids need to know about. The school system should be teaching kids on how to maintain a steady job or how to raise a baby. Instead, they’re teaching us about math concepts that mostly likely we’ll never use in the future. Algebra doesn’t teach us how maintain good credit or pay our taxes. As a 13-year-old, I need to express myself in a way that the current school system doesn’t allow me to do. I currently go to an arts school, and there I have the privilege to express myself through my art. And yet I still get stress and anxiety because of my state standardized testing. I am ALL FOR helping the future people of our world to succeed by meeting our goals and dreams.

  • AV 10 Apr 2017

    I completely agree with everything on the video, but what I think would do a big change in how students view classes and schools is to change how the classrooms are set up. Adding a variety of colorful and fun chairs, different tables, lounge chairs, couches, options for students to work in would create a more interesting environment in which students are more intrigued to learn, instead of coming in to the usual classroom and being bored immediately.
    Also, I think the most impactful change would be to change the curriculum, but we all agree that the idea is quite difficult. For this reason, I say we should raise children with a prepared mindset for school, teach them that they will have struggles in school, because we all have weaknesses, help them with homework and support them with outside activities or cultural classes such as art or dance. If we raise awareness, we will be able to form great leaders who will be able to make a change in the future.

  • Luci 7 Apr 2017

    I am a 14 year old student going into high school next year. I have been in and out of public and home school for 7 years. I truly can not express how much it means to hear our (students) voices heard. I’m constantly under estimated because of my age, constantly being told that I can’t possibly have an opinion or know things. If there is one thing I have learned about why the world is not progressing, it’s blame. Every new generation blames the one before it or takes their pain and hatred, only pitting people against one another. But there is always a tomorrow, always wiser, more informed people. I have listened, to so many people. From those who love school, to those who hate it, to those who don’t care. I would like to be a writer and artist. But even the teachers who do care, can’t do anything to help. Most kids I know are putting school before mental health, having panic attacks and meltdowns. They are told to grow up, to get careers that will pay well. “Your passion can be a hobby.” I don’t believe this to be adult hood. I believe that being a fully formed, intelligent, rational, adult means being vulnerable, accepting your flaws, using your gifts for good, loving fully. Yesterday a 63 year old woman who runs a progressive education stystem, listened to me for an hour and a half. She had such a want to learn more, further her horizons, become a better educator. And I can not stop crying. Because for once someone listened. To our voice. Thank you so much, for listening, hearing, and acting. Together, we will make great strides.

    I my dream (in a time real) school, Adolecents can use cellphones or tablets in class with some regulations as social networks because the point is to socialise and in the school you can chat face to face, instead of using books which will prevent some back diseases, Every teacher have to respect every type of learning of each student, have to encourage them without forgetting to correct his/her moral or his/her ethic with asertivity, patience, and firm voice, less hours at school the time there have to be productive for most of the class, the teacher have to focus personally with the ones who really need, mini breaks to chat or play around (5 minutes) to recover the brain energy and concentration, Teach courses about personal development, No raise hands to participate instead of that talk with a modular voice, Teach some specific course about manage of money to adolecents, Teach them to do volunteer work since they have 11 there, and most important Please make that love each other have to be the first topic of the list in every people profile.

    In my ideal school, the people who do the time table should make pupils start later and finish earlier as in the United States where pupils finish at 3:10pm because some pupils have a bus to take early. But in the english speaking countries, they eat at 1 :35pm, they does eat later as in France 12am or 13pm. We should’nt have the homework or less homework because undergraduate need time to do extra-curricular activities. Also, teachers do not seek to make understand their courses to their pupils but To teach the test even if they do not understand, while the olds methods been better. Standardized tests are problematic for pupils because all the students Do not think the same. Some subjects will not help us in the future, they will not help us to carry out tasks of the active life (Like looking for a job, filling important papers, …). The days should be less filled than the bags. In addition, teachers are not encouraging: like reminding us of the low percentage of success instead of explaining again and in another way pedagogical. In conclusion: reduce the number of days by thinking about those who have a long journey between their institutions and their homes, having a lighter bag, avoiding too much homework, adopting a less supervised and freer pedagogy and having fewer controls because Exams do not define the student’s intelligence.

    I personally have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks this is mainly because of tests and teachers. I am in the top set for maths but if it weren’t for my teacher I probably wouldn’t. In class I can concentrate and I understand almost everything but when it comes to the test I panic and screw it all up. I think that the education system is rubbish everyone expects all children to have the same ability in everything and then if you don’t you are made to feel bad about yourself. My ultimate favorite thing to do is art and it helps me feel calm but then I get in trouble and punished just for doing what I like. My school has even banned drinking water outside our eating area and so we can’t drink unless we ask a teacher and if they say no then I guess we just die of thirst. I wish that the idea of tests could be scrapped and work could be scrapped it would be amazing if all lessons could be done actively with creative exercises I’m sure that would stay in people’s heads better as well because they are having fun! I maths we could do number games and in history we could act out stories from the past. I am sick of being scared to come to school everyday and competing to be the best at everything. Why does no one listen to the victims of this! If nothing had changed with cars or phones then we all wouldn’t be able to do things as easy as today so why hasn’t school changed! I just don’t understand

  • Mary Massey 2 Mar 2017

    One thing we can do in education is to perceive children as unique individuals, rather than teaching a CLASS, we teach each individual student. Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) shows a different way of defining intelligence. It doesn’t reduce learning to Math and English, rather it includes music, art, movement, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills as intelligences. If we, as teachers, saw children through an MI lens, they would enjoy learning and have better success in reaching their full potential.

    Yes I agree with his whole video everything he says because EVERYTHING he said it was what I have agreed with for a very long time. This was because my dad… he would complain day in and day out about the changes school needs to make. I am not saying I don’t want homework because I don’t like it, it is because it actually has studies that say it doesn’t help students in a high percent. It helps them in a small percent%. Plus, even though I am only 10, I still have a mind of my own and am typing everything. Also, when people have many dreams, many personalities, many abilities, many struggles yet we still are teached the same. But, the best of all is our teachers good or bad ones they must get paid more. They do so much for kids our age throughout our lives. My homeroom teacher had to have a second job just to make enough money for himself and his wife. That is ridiculous! They should only have one job to make enough money. Life can change here and there but something better needs to happen!

    I am an American student in 8th grade. And when I saw in the video(I just sued the school system) there was no change in the pictures I had an idea. What if we had one huge classroom for each subject and in each classroom we would have four teachers, a visual teacher, an audio teacher, and a hands on type teacher , and a teacher that does all those things combined. And we would learn the more important things like creativity and not what is the sqare root of pie if it is multiplies by 45565 times 3 I want to learn things that will help ME in the future things I will remember.

    I am currently in Middle School, and I think it’s way better than my 6th grade year. Switching classes, Lockers to put your stuff in. I am on a team at my middle school where we are all about outdoor education. Friday Hikes, Team Exclusive field trips, and the 7th and 8th graders all combined. Personally, I think this school is one of my favorites out of all the other schools I have been to, but why not have this sort of thing in other schools across the nation? A school where you tie in the outdoors with school and learning. Any outdoorsy person would love this concept. Even a person who loves using technology, computers, video games, etc like myself love this concept. Fridays give you the opportunity to go outside on a nice hike and enjoy the outdoors. We sometimes go sledding, and even have a snowball fight every now and then. Does that sound like fun? And our school is integrating technology with our classes, but this started only recently. Instead of carrying books, why not bring a tablet such as an I-Pad, Kindle, or even a Microsoft Surface which would be perfect for schoolwork? Why not have homework be digital and something fun? Why not integrate more and more technology into our school system? Most kids these days have phones with them and those devices could easily be used for note taking. And if you do not have a smart enough phone, a tablet could do fine as well. Why can’t all this be integrated in other schools across the nation? Is funding an issue? No. We have taxes and part of that goes to the school/s so that’s out of the question. Cyber Bullying? That can be monitored when it happens, and nothing that you post, send, or even comment on cannot be removed forever. This is an opportunity that can occur right now.

    Prince ,you are so right, the system needs to change and change starts from within each and everyone of us. We must first accept the fact that all knowledge is within us,meaning that all there is to know is that all we need to know is already within us,we just need to become aware of it. That is done by closing our eyes and looking within. the practice of Transcendental Meditation,dont worry its not a religion,nor cult,nor a way of life,its just a mental technique.

    Technology is important in today’s society and the holographic gadget I feel is pretty useful which increases interaction and better allows students to learn about the impacts that are brought against the world with the things that people are using to make progress in the world. But the thing is that I feel that other than these things, which are taught in school, more importantly is the values that should be taught instead of these knowledge. Firstly, we should focus on creating an environment which teaches them the correct values that should stay firm in their lives. People who are doing things that harm the environment like for example, using up fossil fuels for their company’s production, to increase the amount of money that they can make, they are all doing it for the sake of money. Why? Because money allows them to buy the things that they want, money have the ability to bring happiness into their lives. Like for real, everyone is living for the happiness that they can get whether it be by money or other means. Humans’ greatest goals in life is to be happy. If you think through the things that you go through in life, doesn’t it seem that you like things that will make you happy? And that is the same for every other issue and every other human in the world. So back to the issue, people who are harming the environment are doing it because of personal gains or whatsoever. But the thing for these people is that they didn’t think deep enough because they are causing trouble for others. So the main thing is that if we are able nurture generations and generations of people who have values in their lives, who stays firm and cares for the others, who does not discriminate others and respects others, then there will be much lesser troubles in this world. Currently, terrorism, presidency, prejudices such things are hunting our human race down. It isn’t about how smart you are, but how well are you able to bring happiness to yourself and others.

    But also, as much as we try, as much as we try to create a better environment for everyone in this world, even if the problems now are solved, people are receiving the correct type of education, things seem all set and good, there will still be problems. Why? Because we will be customed to such an environment and if there is anything that doesn’t suit, that is problem for us. It is a cycle that it hard to understand, just like life itself.

    Sometimes I use to think and tell myself, I want to change the world for it to become a better place, for people to be happy, nothing is impossible, well of course, nothing is impossible and we should never limit ourselves in life. But it is the things that are surrounding us, society, limiting us. But really? Let’s not feel limited and do the things that we want and be happy. And even so, if I wanna change the world, how should I change it to? How do I want it to be? How do you want it to be? Even if we changed? What’s the point of it? How do we understand the way of life?

    teachers need to teach us more about our future job more then what they want us to think.

  • Jorge Contreras 26 Jan 2017

    I think the school system should change very soon, students now a days aren’t learning much, we study one subject in whatever class and then when we go back to that subject we forget about it a week later, the school system hasn’t changed a bit for years and its sad, the schools need to teach us how to right a check and other stuff that’s important to us in the future, not only that, schools gives us anxiety and stress with homework and tests, we all want to do good with are grades, its killing us inside and us waking up at 6 am is not helping. The school system needs to change very soon.

    I think it’s important to give students the chance to INTERACT with each other. I mean that’s our everyday life right? Interaction with one another? So why don’t we learn that at school, or high school or even universities. I am in college and still, there’s nothing. I feel like it’s “sit, listen and don’t talk”. Well nobody ever learn that way. That’s just brainwashing. You know I would love to have the ability to THINK TOGETHER, that’s how we evolve right? that’s how we can move forward, right? to LISTEN to each other and especially UNDERSTAND the others point of view in order to learn from one another. I think that is how we learn. Of course teachers are essential, but they need do bring their knowledge creatively, and not just throw them all at once like during lectures for example.

      I have been a teacher for many years. I design and implement new programs that engage students in doing and building and planning and working together to make things happen. I am so sorry that your education was so limited in presentation. You can be very grateful that you were still able to get an education with that limitation. And, you can make a difference. Volunteer in your local school. Learn a bit about lesson planning and present some of your college material to middle school students. You’ll be amazed.
