Having fun teaching with technology.

Matthew Weathers teaches Maths at Biola University and can play some interesting technology tricks, with a little help from his friends, on his students. The clip has been out for 4 years so you may have seen it. He is using the element of surprise to engage his students and to gain a high level of interest which he can then utilise to lead them into some solid learning of concepts and ideas. We’d love to be this clever. We’d love to be able to do amazing things with technology. It would take time, energy , thought and very careful planning. Matthew Weathers is obviously very good at thinking out the logistics of a presentation such as this as well as having considerable skills. You can emulate the approach ,at least, and start your lessons with something which is eye-catching, interesting, highly amusing and bound to create  interest. We can all think about how to raise the bar at the beginning of the lesson. All I saw written on a science board in big letters this morning was Mendel’s Pea Plants. I wanted to know what that was about, who Mendel was and what was so scientific about peas. Thanks to the obliging science teacher I am now fully au courant with Mendel and his peas.
