Wonderful insights as a former Maths and Physics Tutor( After Graduation) I still miss those tiny creatures, our future leaders in any country. The kids need the 6th C the most whether they're your own kids or otherwise. Amazing video.

What about their results ? Do they perform better than before ? Do they perform better than their cohort ? What do they do after they graduate from your class ? Do they continue with this subject ? Does this method suit every student or are there exceptions ? What percentage is the exception ?

Um Ibrahim (2 months ago)
I absolutely love this, however, as a GCSE teacher in England, the curriculum must be completed in a limited time period. If it wasn't for that, I'd use these teaching methods.
Muhd Isha (2 months ago)

He is a great teacher. I want to be a great teacher too.
Jayne (3 months ago)
I've same teaching experiences and teach in the same way. His assumptions are absolutely right. As always there is a catch; you've to work enormous hard backstage to reach the goal. In numbers; thousands of hours extra over five to seven years. If a teacher isn't addicted to his/her job, he/she won't make it. Congrats, Joe! Brobdingnagian Job!! Best, Jane.

After a 30 year insurance claims career, I’m going for my teaching credentials, needing a positive before-the-fact way to help rather than a picking-up-the-pieces after-the-fact world. Should have done this years ago, but wanted some life experience under my belt first. OK, it turned out to be a big, longer-than-expected belt, but I’m now ready. His lecture reminded me of the teachers I had, the mostly average, the few bad, and the few, exceptional, memorable teachers whose teachings, personality and humanity that are role models for me as I pursue this new career. I can’t wait!

Amber Miller (5 months ago)
I love this a million times! Mr. Ruhl made me cry. Our elementary education professors always remind us the kids will not care how much we know, until they know how much we care. I am certain that your students are some very fortunate students. I believe a person must be "called" to teach. You have the gift and the calling for sure!

Research on techniques is good, but not always. There is already too much research on alternative pedagogies for any teacher to try out in a lifetime -- it takes a whole semester (or two) to know if a method has improved learning. A better thing is that teachers should be trained by the MORE AWESOME teachers who can teach teachers how to find their happy zones as well (or more importantly) the happy zones for their students. A great teacher will also be flexible and not rigidly devoted to a research finding about good technique. If students do not "take" to your awesome research findings, you need to find another way.

This makes a lot of sense. The challenge in my classroom is getting the different formats of information for the students. The pre-planning is excellent. I would like to see if i can implement something similar in my classroom in the near future.....like....next month.

Learning environment along with teachers’ pedagogical skills is important for quality education. Similarly, the students have also become both, geographically and socially diversified. There is a great need of new teaching methods and pedagogies to meet global challenges. Hence, we can say that there is also a need of change in the learner and teachers’ means of interaction. All the schools are striving to integrate curriculum with technology so that the students are provided quality education and learning takes place their way and they are focusing to provide quality education to the students by all the means so that they are ahead in the education industry. The teachers should align their professional experiences with their teaching practices and pedagogies in order to benefit their students. These days one of the major roles of the teachers is to ensure that the content delivered has achieved the learning objective, which can be considered a key challenge. Despite the years of teaching experience, there is always a room for improvement and innovation for the teachers to adapt as per their requirement. Demands and needs change time to time so the teachers should also undergo professional and personal development to benefit both, the students and themselves as well, both are the learners. There is no age limit for learning; it depends on priorities and awareness only.
Anamika Mishra (9 months ago)
Quality teaching is tend to necessarily be student-centred. It aims to help most and for all students learning. Therefore, focus should not only be pedagogical skills, but also learning environment that must address the students’ personal needs. Students should also be aware as to why they are working so that they are able to relate to other students and receive help if required. As a result, great emphasis has been laid on “quality teaching” by many educators. In the same way, there is a need of elaborating the term “quality teaching”. Globalization has influenced each and everyone’s life. Quality, successful and effective learning actually depends on several factors e.g. availability and selection of instructional resources, staffing quality, nature and its level, professional development implication as a system, and also the support of parents and administration. Recently, research also highlights one of the key features of “quality teaching” i.e. student-centred classrooms, which aims to benefit all students learning.

I just watched it after knowing about it as an online student and found it amazingly worthy and important for forwarding online learning. Important part of online learning is discussion and forums tossing view reactions. These are the integral part of distance education which now is spreading around as a forest fire. This video is another instance of horse shoe spark expanding the digital science further high in the skies. Thank you prof. ABC
It was really an awesome video..! Great thanks

As a current student the caring part is very important. I grew up in a rough environment that led to me feeling uncared about and so when my teacher showed genuine care for me and what I did it made me feel so much better and so important
