Thank you so much for sharing your insight and wisdom. I was a terrible student at school, now I find myself teaching. Not in a classroom but small photography workshops and online photography courses. I will incorporate what I have learned here as much as I can

Choices?! This is ridiculous in your slavery society! ))) What choices you and your children have got - to pay off loans for the whole of your life, survive in unemployment, eating GMO food... You don't even have a right to get true information. Your television is full of lies and propaganda based on lies of your hosts.

I am teaching in a quite Isolated area in Indonesia. Applying this method is a big challenge for me. it because of the lack of the school facility and educational system that designed by the government that requires the teacher to move from one classroom to other classrooms while the students are waiting for the teacher to come and substitute with the teacher from other subjects. it spends 15 to 30 minutes of my hour to arrange and manage the classroom, besides, I myself struggle to accommodate the method's requirement of the technological device to support the learning. I need a suggestion from fellow teachers to cope with the issues during this type of classroom activity. thank you.

I think it's what new generation need because in the classroom we have different mind students so this would really work and I believe this would give interesting results because luctures are really boring I have one high energetic child of 5year I am really concerned about his education how teachers are going to react to his behavior.

The man gave a present to the child who had just broken the window! The child was shocked,frustrated but amazed by this present. Yes,"he could make mistake.He could break the window by fault or deliberately.' But anyone before could not have given her a present for a 'crime(!)' Yes,because he has not been a criminal,just he was a child but a child who has the right to make mistake like elder ones. From now on,he would not make just mistakes,and he would be a good one.

currently studying for my methodology finals, this TED talk inspired me so much, I wrote down everything in order to make my classroom the place of the 6 Cs Joe Ruhl lists in this Video. What a great mentor.
Mathew Levenson (2 months ago)
He truly puts the students first and removes himself as being the focal point. This is the future of education. You become a facilitator rather than a traditional teacher.

I just knew that love would come in to it. After 40 years as a teacher I know that without a shadow of a doubt a teacher's love for her students is a key factor in their success.
Ruohao Chen (2 months ago)
Nothing new, and his numbers didn't actually lead to very profound and insightful findings. He is an idealist, but he fails to see that education is the product of different forces: economy, social pressure, political power, etc. John Dewey is a great educator and philosopher. However, some of his progressive ideas may not fit today's world. For example, he thought highly of giving students' opportunities for having experiments in labor work. These days, as technology and the Internet develops, Dewey's ideas from 100 years ago don't actually fit our preference and meet the needs of the fast-developing world. We need more effective and practical ways of education. Based on this, we do need boring basic education as it is the foundation for further learning. Moreover, we need chances to explore our creativities and problem-solving abilities. This speaker saw only the boring part and made a mediocre conclusion that we need to go back to John Dewey. Man, look forward, not backward.

rick padgett (3 months ago)
We all have our methods but teachers must remember we are dealing with individual people.They know if you care.Humans are wired to want to know the why's of life.Ask the question then get out of the way and aid in their discovery when needed.It's fun for the kids and the teacher.I spent much of my time in the back of the room with students up front sharing their knowledge.I was amazed at what I learned.

Pre-K I remember my teacher Miss Dabbs was teaching us about art and painters. She told us that Michelangelo painted the Sistine chapel and we taped piece of paper on the bottom of our tables, laid on the floor, and painted like Michelangelo. One of my best memories and a big reason of why I started loving to learn.

Zxi. Hate. You
Wonderful talk! Congratulations on your achievements, prizes, awards, recognitions... Well deserved. I am an English teacher in Spain and recently graduated (Primary teaching degree). If not the most inspiring educational video I've seen yet. You breathe, speak and live passion, pouring out of your soul when you speak of your students. No act could beat this performance, which more than a performance, I would dare to say that Mr. Ruhl spoke out of pure love for his work, seeming to be his treasure and wanting to share that treasure with all since the greatest treasure a human can have is sharing that knowledge with the rest. There's no room for greed, envy or jealousy in this profession. We must be pure, transparent and authentic, and this talk definitely transmitted all of that - and more. Thank you Mr. Ruhl for sharing.

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 ?

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 (6 months ago)
