A Look Into Education

In regard to the post on: http://insync21.com/ titled:

WELCOME TO THE iGENERATION: Make Learning Real

I think this is a very useful lesson to everyone involved in learning and education. I especially like the part where it states that kids should be able to learn in a way that interest them and which will help involve and engage kids in every lesson or topic, this could possibly be achieved by using technology in a affective way. I think if teachers could master this skill, kids would be more enthusiatic about learning and going to school. Even if the number of kids in each class that were interested in the lesson increased, I think something great could result of it. Kids could be sharing ideas that could intrigue other kids into the discussion, creating a web of never ending involvment for all the children. School these days (and even in the past) is stereotypicaly thought of to be boring, work, a mean to discipline kids into the ways the teachers want it or in a way that teachers can do as little as possible, but why? Shouldn’t education about discovery and learning about the world we live in? Hopefully with the great ideas of this blog and the many ideas out there in the world like these ideas, something great will happen.

Topic/Question: The brain operates on the same amount of power as 10-watt light bulb. The cartoon image of a light bulb over your head when a great thought occurs isn’t too far off the mark. Your brain generates as much energy as a small light bulb even when you’re sleeping.
