Research suggests that humor produces psychological and physiological benefits that help students learn.
Philip Powel Smith's insight:
Far too often I am told that a student has lost all joy for learning. Slowly, using humour, I show that I make mistakes and can laugh at them. Although exaggerated, I show them that sometimes laughing at oour mistakes can make the stree seem less intense.
Being Dyslexic, I often make mistakes, and it is always a delight when a student spots the mistake and lets me know. We try and figure out how the mistake was made; sometime it is impossible and we just laugh at it.
Every day I have the pleasure of having fun with students with learning disabilities as they learn. Humour makes the process that much easier. Humour lets them know that learning does not have to be so serious. We can learn through our mistakes, forgetfulness, and frustration.
We need to know when humour is a good tool and how to use it without hurting anyone. Humour is fun and must not hurt, bully, or alienate anyone.
