Miro Svetlik's curator insight, June 20, 4:12 AM

I wish I would have Prof. Frenkel as my math teacher when I were in the college. His passionate explanation why we fail to motivate and teach people math is quite honest. The psychology behind this is real and I would probably add that math teaching should focus more on underlying concepts and not a computing drill. It is 2014 after all and we do have the computers...

Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Great Maths Teaching Ideas | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.
William Emeny's insight:

Send trainee teachers to witness rap shows, barbershop banter and Pentecostal Churches to learn how to motivate an audience.
