I love watching these two videos; they resonated with me and reminded me that what I am doing right now has an essential purpose. As stated by Sir Ken Robinson, we can revolutionize education with technology and the combination of teacher talent, and each school will flourish tomorrow. However, in order to achieve it, we must have the right people taking the job; Robinson mentioned that you need to have the passion, and excitement, to feel free and get lost in that moment because you love that job so much that this is the only thing you want to do. I love helping my student, but sometimes I get frustrated and tired; I have those moments that I want to quit, but I stay simply because I know in my heart that I can help my students; more than the academic aspect. Moreover, I tried my best to make them comfortable in my class, that it is okay to make mistakes and that we are all learning. I have previous students who inspired and made me believe I am in the right place.
Pinks’ video is so on point; just like Robinson’s ideas, the power of motivation makes people do their best and maximize their potential. Starts treating people as people, and they will be better; applying this notion to students is true; they work more if you have shown them that you care. Based on my experience, they are building a relationship with our student’s matters. It is one of the keys to a thriving learning environment.

Hey Anna! I love those tag and the wordle style layout you implemented within them! I think its a great way to showcase what’s important to you as you take ownership of your learning! I agree with the idea that we need to revolutionize education with technology and teacher talent. I also think that each school can flourish if they have the right people taking the job who are passionate about it. In my experience, I’ve found that building relationships with students is one of the keys to a thriving learning environment.
Anna, the presentation of Mr. Pink’s Drive is powerful for me too. I am looking forward to reading his book in 5304. I am working to highlight failure, as much as I do success in my classroom. Learning through failure is vital in a math class. I want to guide my learners to find their mathematical mindset. We are all mathematicians! This starts with me. My relationships with my students is as important, if not more so, than the concepts I am teaching them.
