If I may… ? Just the other day, while I was on my scooter, I happened to overhear a couple of children commenting on how they were starting to like attending their classes on the computer. That it was easier not to have to worry about how the other kids felt about you. They sure couldn’t talk about you to the other kids. I thought, “Wow, what an interesting concept…” Nobody could pass notes, nobody could put their hand next to their mouth and whisper to the girl next to them. And funny looks, forget about it. Everyone sees it… including the teacher.
Hummmmm, think this new style of teaching hoses down the heat of bullying? Perhaps. I’m as old as the Turkey pardoned on the lawn at the white house during Jefferson’s presidency, so, I wouldn’t know, but it sounds good. If this can keep those silly kids from threatening the innocent, sometimes even the strange, often times the shy wallflowers to the misunderstood nerds from being picked on, I say let’s keep maintaining this unique way of holding classes. And, if perhaps there’s a way, in the near future, we can learn to communicate in the same way, acclimate it to the neighborhoods, and families… What a way to get along 🙂 Of course this is just me… thoughtfully speaking.
