What Can We Learn About Teaching and Learning From Randy Pausch?
As I started watching this hour long video, my though was "For real?!". What could this guy possibly talk about for an hour on teaching and learning. In the video, Pausch talks about three different topics, 1. Childhood dreams 2. Helping other enable dreams 3. Lesson learned.
Through Pausch's lecture, I realized that with me as a teacher, I will always be learning.
With teaching, and the example story in the lecture that Pausch gives, when you give your students a project and the over come your expectations on what they will research and learn, Pausch tells his students that they have done a good job, but he thinks they could do better. With that, I believe that is a great way to teach because you, as a teacher, are complimenting your student's work , but at the same time pushing them to learn more.
