[Youtube] What Most Schools Don't Teach - Page 16  

post #151 of 276
I'm amazed at the people who say get rid of physical education altogether, and then are in favor of something like coding being mandatory. Physical education could benefit just about anyone. It doesn't matter what your profession or your hobbies are, physical movement/exercise and general knowledge of health and nutrition promotes healthier lifestyles. You don't have to be a professional athlete or a personal trainer to benefit from the knowledge and activities introduced by PE in schools. You only need to be an individual who cares about their personal well being.

Actually, programming is more basic than sports.... because it begins with "thinking" and "problem solving".

Programming doesn't embodies many disciplines? Anything that sports covers.... programming does as well and more because it again breaking down tasks into work units.


Programming is not writing code in front of a computer.... that is the easiest step in the process. Understanding a problem, the scope, dependencies, how to tackle...

How about education gets more funding and schools teach everything? Just a thought.

yeah, but you dont get those skills in coding classes, for logic you get it from philosophy or discrete math classes and when it comes to breaking down problems, i got those from physics. in most of my CS classes that taught coding except for 1 large scale software class, they basically only teach a language + data structures and what they do. they don't teach you how to break down problems, come up with solutions to problems, etc. Being able to break down problems is a skill that i learned in my other classes, especially my electrical engineering and physics classes, but not the programming/coding language classes, which is what the video encourages students to take.

And of course i'm wrong, all those schedules are for watching people do it on TV, and not actually doing it

Sorry but you will have to be more specific than that.

Now you're just trolling.

Pretty sad that theres people that think "physical education" means "educating" yourself about physical activities from a chair.

This is how bad its gotten

you know all about abs right?

I mean actually having abs, not talking about having them

I'm sorry but you're straying so far off the point you're bordering on incomprehensibility.
You were wrong deal with it, I can't stress this enough. You're acting like someone who go an F on a test and then waves the admission form to space camp to defend himself. Unrelated subjects are by nature unrelated. Trying to steer the argument away from it's origin will only make you less and less credible.


And in response to the last part of your post

Abs, I have those, they're protected by a couple of cm of fat I have no intention of getting rid off. My biceps and triceps are fancy enough, happens when you heat your house with fire wood and chop it yourself.
The Trapezius can act up some times but that's mostly due to my less than ergonomical position when trying to post stuff on OCN and watch TV at the same time. I must admit that I'm a bit disappointed with my Calf's as of late, many men have problem with building hefty Calves, mine looks like something out of 17th century fashion when ever I devote some time to them, Sadly this has become rarer and rarer since I absolutely hate thigh excerises. Something which more often than not results in severe Kneecap grinding cartilage pain.
You know what I really like? My shoulders, they're awesome, Being naturally v-shaped (sadly from a case of Pectus excavatum) My shoulders have always been a focal point of my physique, Now some people use dumbells, I have nothing about dumbells, but If you want to have real fun you grab an uncut piece of 2X4 and juggle it over your head, burns like something from Dante after awhile, that wobbly action sure is fine.

Even with infinite funding, time is still a constraint.

I know....

However, entry level coding with a good guidence can train people to examine their thoughts and teach them to think.
