what if teachers shipped their students
ship wars in the staff room
anonymous hate mail in other teachers' assignment boxes
fanfiction written by english teachers, fanart drawn by art teachers
the real edgy teachers write teacher/student fics and hope the school board doesn't find out
(the school board knows and eagerly awaits each new chapter)
((This is posted somewhere else on tumblr, but I couldn't find it again.))
You know what’s fun?
Learning things because you see the value in them and not because someone else does.
This is the story of Parallel and Isosceles...
Me: Parallel lines are my favorite kind of lines. Parallel... That's a pretty word. That would be such a pretty name for a baby girl! You know, like if I wanted to give my children nerdy math names!
My friend: Parallel? What? Okay, I guess that's a cool name. If I had a baby boy and I was going to give my child a nerdy math name, it would be Isosceles. That's the nerdiest math name ever.
Me: Oh my gosh! I'll have a girl named Parallel and you can have a boy named Isosceles and then they can have cute little math play dates and they can eat pi together!
My opinion on how school is going to be in 100 years time...
Teacher: Today we will be learning about the start of the World Wide Web War on January 19/20, 2012, now turn to page 394 on your Kindles
Student: My great grandparents fought in that war. On their Tumblr blogs.
Teacher: You must be very proud of them
How would you feel if you went to school tomorrow and had all of your books taken away and replaced with an iPad?
I was reading this article about the technology of the iPad and how Apple is making educational apps, books, and games more available for academic use. What do you think?
Can’t say this has ever happened to me, only because I’m dreadful at math!
Thanks to lavidadelachica!
