Learning is About Understanding Relationships We never discuss the value and importance of human connection. Relationships. According to James colmer no significante learning takes place with a significant relationship. Everybody in this room has been affected by a teacher. How many times did you apolozige in front of your students. Give example of a terrible class. When I blushed. I was wondering how was I going to take my week students from where they are to were I want them to be Sometimes we have those aha moments when we make a different in our students´life. Example Coursera. You made me feel like I was able to pass the course. We come to classe exhausted.. taxi teachers in Argentina and we teach, because teaching and learning brings us joy We are educators we are born to make a difference. Kids don't learn from people they don't like.'" A rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFnMTHhKdkw&feature=player_embedded is becoming less dependent on courses, exams & degrees, & more on people being linked, worldwide, to resources & to each other.
Traditional education focuses on teaching, not learning. It incorrectly assumes that for every ounce of teaching there is an ounce of learning by those who are taught. However, most of what we learn before, during, and after attending schools is learned without its being taught to us. A child learns such fundamental things as how to walk, talk, eat, dress, and so on without being taught these things. Adults learn most of what they use at work or at leisure while at work or leisure. Most of what is taught in classroom settings is forgotten, and much or what is remembered is irrelevant.
This is the best situation for your students but as teachers we never have the possibility of choosing the technology we are willing to use. Generally it is imposed on us and this is not very positive.

Using video games as a reward for finishing learning It's fashionable right now for parents to use video games as a reward for having finished schoolwork or, for the really nice parents, as a reward for just having made it through the school day. The thing is that video games actually teach important skills for work . And kids who play video games do better as adults . I'm r eally happy to tell you that human resource managers understand this so well that it's been shown that people who play World of Warcraft at work during work hours on the work computer are higher performing employee s. There are lots of reasons for this . World of Warcraft is extremely competitive. It requires long‑term commitment and strategy , and it favors people who understand how to shift between different sorts of tasks that require different kinds of thinking.
