Let’s face it, students are already ranking teachers, discussing which classes they love and which classes they hate, and most importantly they’re talking about WHY they love or hate these classes. Imagine how powerful it would be if teachers had this information, if we could create transparent communication with the students to get their honest feedback about what’s working and what isn’t.
The current generation of young Australians will spend 11,000 hours learning at school in their lifetime, plus an average of 6 hours a week doing homework. Yet most students, and their teachers and parents; the three key-players in the Education System – have no idea how the brain learns best.
This is irresponsible at best – and damaging at worst.
