3 Reasons your kids should not have school teachers | Penelope ... | is too much technology bad? | Scoop.it
So many parents tell me they can't homeschool because they can't be a teacher. But kids learn much better without teachers, because teachers are largely there to restrict freedom. If you leave 30 kids alone, together, they will ...
marissa gibson's insight:

(Phase 3)  10. Some parents feel that kids learn and achieve more without teachers. They feel that teachers hold kids back from reaching their full potential and also keep them from getting complete freedom. 

 

(Phase 3)  9. Parents feel that the teachers we have now a days only care about teaching but they need to care more about what the kids are learning and if they are learning, not just about getting the information out to them.

 

(Phase 3)  8. Kids have more creative brains than adults, therefore kids are better at teaching and learning things themselves rather than having a teacher.  

 

(Phase 3) 7. Kids learn better with hands on things, there fore when the teacher is in front of the room talking and trying to teach most kids really are not really getting anything out of it therefore the teacher is pointless for that child.

 

(Phase 3) 6. After 8 hours of instruction kids start to lose their patents and focus so after awhile anything the teacher is saying is going in one ear and out the other but if the kid was trying to teach his or herself with a computer or other form of technology they would have to pay 100% attention on what they were doing.

 

(phase 3)  5. Teachers main purpose is to encourage the kids but its the kids job to actually take the time to try to learn what is being taught, the kid is the one who decides if there gonna learn something or not so in a sense a teacher isnt as useful as some might think it is.

When I first applied for teaching jobs, I didn't have to show them I could teach – people assumed that with a PGCE under my belt I could do the job, so all I faced was an interview. But recently things have changed: to get a job ...
marissa gibson's insight:

(Phase 3)  3. Now that teaching jobs are getting more scarce to come by, the expectations are way higher than they use to be.  You now have to be more than just qualified to receive the job. You need to be able to prove your qualified, not just have the papers.

(Phase 3) 1. Schools are having to start to cut teachers salaries cause they no longer have the money to pay the same salaries.  The schools are talking about either cutting pay or just cutting jobs all together.

Is all this technology good for our kids?

Jen and Barb speak with Anastasia Goodstein, author of Totally Wired, about all the technology in our kids lives. Is it good? Bad? Scary? How much is too much?
marissa gibson's insight:

7.    Technology can be a good thing for kids but only in moderation and thats the thing alot of parents miss.  They either want their kids using no technology or they let them use as much of it as they want, parents need to find a happy medium of technology usage for their kids.

The balance we need to find is in appreciating and using technology the right way, but still knowing when to turn it off to experience life to its fullest.

Via Liz Sumner
marissa gibson's insight:

5.    Technology is so important in our everyday lives, maybe more important than it should be.  When you think about not having your phone or the internet being down or even your tv not working, all these things would cause you to go crazy even though none of them are neccesssary.  Its plain and simple, we just depend way to much on technology.

Too Much Tech for Kids

marissa gibson's insight:

1.    47% of kids who claim they use the internet alot get mostly C's and below in school while only 23% of kids who say they dont use the internet that much usually get grades of C's or lower.  Only a third of kids say they have limits on how much they can use the tv or internet and the percentages show that this affects their grades.

marissa gibson's insight:

(Phase 3) 4.  There are teachers out there who just allow student to sit around and do nothing during class, some even turn their tvs on in their classrooms and allow them to do whatever they want. so is their really a point in having teachers or should technology just be the one teaching the children?

Yet some of the biggest learning moments in my life, even before I became involved with the Maryland Adventure Program in college, happened not in a classroom but on a soccer field or at summer camp.

Via Yasemin Allsop
marissa gibson's insight:

10.    Schools are trying to bring all kind of new technology into the classroom but yet it doesnt even help anything.  For example many teachers received smart boards and instead of utilizing them they just used them as advanced whiteboards.  Also kids go home and play with technology, they dont need to come to school and have it shoved in there face also.

Sometimes Technology is Too Much Too Soon for Kids

Sometimes Technology is Too Much Too Soon for Kids | is too much technology bad? | Scoop.it
Can too much technology -- or delivering it too soon -- overwhelm kids and harm their development? It's possible, some argue.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
marissa gibson's insight:

8.     technology is put into classrooms too soon and to often.  Kids are given computers to play on at such an early age that they dont even know what exactly there suppose to be learning.  When they figure out how to use them they will depend on them for everything school related which will cause them to not work as hard.

Too Much Technology

Here is a sample section of my keynote: Is too much technology making us stupid?
marissa gibson's insight:

6.   To much technology can over whelm us. Also technology makes us lazy because it makes us not have to work as hard to talk to people, get information, spread information, etc.  Technology can help us but in the end all it does it makes us alot lazier than the people who grew up without it.

Too much technology

Extremely short clip illustrating the mindless usage of technology today; I only intended this video to be a test for my new editing software.
marissa gibson's insight:

2.   This video doesnt say much but it doesnt have to.  This video shows how every teenagers life revolves around electronics such as their cellphones, computers, video games, ETC.  Its just to much technology.
