Helping Put Fun Back into Learning
January 7, 2014
Time to resurrect the blog. New year, new resolution, all that. I had the best intentions for 2013 but really got quite busy. But busy is good, because it means that work is going well. But with the new year I thought I’d opt for a new tag line. I’ve been saying it much of 2013 and have pronounced it as my mission more than once, and that is, “Learning should be fun.”
We’ve gotten far from fun in learning these days. I visit hundreds of classrooms a year, perhaps a thousand or more, and the prevailing constant across those classrooms is that kids are bored. I’m not the first to notice this.
