Edumaaaa punkedddd :O

I watched a video entitled, “A vision of students today” and I was so saddened to see what was going on in the video.  A quote that stood out to me that was probably written on the wall by a bored college student:

“if these walls could talk, what would they say?”

Imagine, that’s how tortured and bored college students are in class and how they suffer alongside not learning and learning in a way thats different and approachable to them.

This video really stood out to me in so many ways. I was hooked from started to finish and this video speaks the truth about those in debt after graduation, those are not 100 percent certain if they will have a job in the future, those students who are there with their laptop in class but don’t even pay attention because they are on Facebook majority of the time.

The video showed me the boredom these college students endure. Most of them are there and payed for their course but they are not really fully PRESENT there. They sit there probably because they are told that college is a great thing and that if you don’t have ab Bachelor of Arts degree after approxiamately four years you are nothing. That is not how we should be taught and our mindset in society is so different nowadays that it is totally different.

I personally feel that this video has enlightened me and proved to me that we are all feeling the same yet different about college and our degrees and our future endeavors in life. I hope one day our mindset changes and we are not left hostage as prisoners in our society. I hope that one day debt wouldn’t exist and that education could be afforable for every single person. I hope for many things but it would take more than an army to get to where I feel society should be.

 

So what now?

TECHNOLOGY, TECHNOLOGY, TECHNOLOGY!!!! That’s what I feel would really help society and I think that others would agree with me on this one. Technology helps people come together and also sets them apart. However, it really is something that I can personally say helped me to learn a lot about the world and how to use different programs that I have never used in my life like Sound Cloud and even Youtube and Flickr. These programs have really opened my mind to something brand new and showed me that as a future educator, I can incorporate the use of technology heavily into my teaching so not only can I make it fun but I can feel that the students would want to use it and enjoy it because, I was once an elementary student and now I’m on the road to becoming something which is my life-long dream and I don’t want to mess it up. I want my teaching as a teacher to be fun and joyful and I feel that by incorporating 100 percent personality, a dash of sarcasm and playfulness and a load of technology, the recipe for future success will be fantastic.

This is the video that got my head spinning and thinking so many things. It’s so addictivee. You will keep watching because, its the honest truth and many can relate to things that have happened. I’m glad that there is a video that enlightens everyone and talks about taboos that many are afraid to discuss.

One day I hope college students are happy and genuinely they are happy and they look something like this:

  1. I really enjoyed your post!! That quote “If these walls can talk, what will they say?” has always been a fav of mine because the walls hold so many truths, lies and secrets of individuals that have crossed paths with it. I agree a lot of students are in school just because their parents told them to, or to attempt to make better of their lives. As a student I fear the possibility of graduating without having a job waiting for me, but knowing myself I know that wouldn’t last for long because I know how to stand out from the crowd. Anywho enough about me, technology is a MUST as society is forever evolving around it and colleges and universities would need to catch up to keep the students coming in.

    • Thank you so muchhhh! Yes that quote really did stand out to me and I’m glad it also stood out to you just as much. Thank you for your helpful feedback and yes technology will power the entire world one day and cause less boredom. I love the way that you think and your confidence as well. You will definitely prosper in life and in this society as well.

  2. I definitely agree and I think your recipe is loaded and complete and I hope for the best, that we will be educators who are in tune with the times and the constantly evolving world and society we live in, That we will not be a part of that percentage of teacher who are just talking and blind to the fact that their students are not receiving anything and therefore not learning,nice post and good thoughts.

    • Thank you so much for your engaging and helpful comment. I really appreciate it and yes these thoughts I have are so relatable to the college students I know not only in York College but also amongst other colleges as well. I made my own recipe to stand out and that’s exactly how I feel about everything. Thank you so much for commenting and letting me know your thoughts as well. It is very much appreciated.

  3. I think that we all have had an awakening of some sort by taking this class. I love Michael Welsch’s video and I think you have great insight as to what you want to achieve as a future educator.
