We Should Listen to the Kids
{July 7, 2010}

This post by Jenny She was great. It was about teachers or adults always being in charge and always being right. The post also discusses how teachers and adults can learn from students. For example, in this post Mrs. She talks about when she was a first year teacher she had no idea how to use a Mac. She was very embarrassed and didn't want her colleagues to know so she asked a grade 6 student to help her use the mouse. This is a great example of how teachers and adults can learn from children. Even if it is as simple has how to use a computer mouse. Mrs. She also posted a video of a child giving a presentation about adults and teachers listening to children advice. This video was fantastic and makes adults want to give children more credit. The over all message of this post and this video is to LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN! Simple as that. It is to listen and learn from children and they will listen and learn from you.
