It Is All About Hard Work
Hi my name is Ashley Johnson. I am taking EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I was assigned to follow your blog for the next three weeks and I will be summarizing them in a post on my blog for my class. Here is a link to my blog page My Blog .
I agree with you 100% about trying to get our students to work hard. In today’s world the students that we are teaching have always had home computers and many of them do not even know what the inside of a library looks like. Many students today do not have any patience and why should they with all the gadgets like iPods and laptops available to them? As great as these gadgets are in aiding education many people use them as a distraction from their education. I like your idea about timing the students to see how long that they can focus on particular task. I am willing to bet many of them will not last long. The first time their cell phone “dings” they will instantly check their text message.
