Extended Comments: using Sarah Araujo's Blog as part of my blog.
- Wesch discusses how students in the class room are less engaged than ever before. In Sarah's blog, she mentions certain parts of the video where students hold up papers saying: teachers do not know their names, their classes has 115 students, they are on social networks during class, and how they spend a lot of money on texts books that they never open. I agree when Sarah stated, it has to do with the teachers, teaching style. From my own experience, many teachers do not know my name, I understand Raeann is not a common name, but when a teacher does not even know your name, it makes me feel like they do not care about their students, and it just a job to them.
- In Sarah's blog, she mentioned Progressive Education, which I have actually never heard of until now. I agree with what Sarah says "
1. embrace real problems that the teacher does not know the answer to 2. do it with students to bring them (teachers and students) together, 3. using relevant media tools ( YouTube, Google, etc).
