  1. I loved Sir Robinson's presentation. As a former student, I think the most important point is that our school system has to change. We can't keep doing things as we've done in the past, it does not work anymore!

  2. I just got the app! Oddly enough though, I can only get the audio to work if I use headphones. Good stuff though!

  3. I think every teacher should watch this video. It really makes you think about how little we are doing to stimulate our children's minds.
    It seems as though we are deadening their minds and their capacity to want to take in knowledge.
    Society is "drugging" kids up just because a teacher is being boring. If you are boring, why should I even bother listening to what you say? Don't put a student on Ritalin when it is clearly the teacher who has to change.
