Fire the teachers and bring us better internet and computers. Seriously. The internet is full of educational material and allows students to choose their own material, videos, text, graphics, and audio books. Teachers should only be there as a moderator to the students, to promote open discussions and to assist the ones who need one on one help.
In all of my schools and classes we rarely ever used online resources in class. The majority of our computer use was typing up essays and other documents or researching one assignment. Like researching an author, then we never got to touch the internet again for the rest of the class.
You can forget educational video content, we were still using a vcr and tv even though our county is in the top 25 wealthiest in the US. Our education system is ridiculous. /off topic rantEdited by s-x - 3/31/11 at 5:20am
