    I think one of the problems with schools is that we take to many classes, and that greatly reduces the time we need to actually learn something. It’s just to much work, along with other important things you have to do out of school. For example work, chores at home, spare time, and sleep. When there are so many classes, grades do impact us a lot. We tend to lose focus and build up anger or frustration. When were doing bad in one class that can cause us to do worse in another. It’s not only schools that need help but there are much more important things that also need help similar to the economy.The world is corrupted in many ways. If you hire only teachers that are qualified rather than certified, a lot will lose there jobs and there will be less teachers and more without jobs. In the end it isn’t impossible to learn something with a bunch of classes but when your done getting your bachelor’s degree or masters, I bet that whatever job that they go into if they get the job, there will be someone teaching him what to do and that possibly might not even have a college degree. It seems that students that graduate from trade schools that focus on one thing like being a electrician, carpenter, plumber and more are better at what they do. College degree programs should only focus on the most important classes that a student needs in order to be successful and to be great at with the career or degree that he or she is choosing. Most people complain that there are so many classes in college that are a waste of time. Also students in college that still don’t know what they wanna do with there life

    Oh my. I have tears running down my face. Thanks for the good advice, and I hope you have fully recovered by now. Because that sounds painful.

  • Adrienne Hestenes says:

    Great talk! I only planned to listen to the first few minutes, but you sucked me in for the whole time! Have you heard of the Sudbury school in Massachusettes? Students choose what and when and how they learn. You might be interested in this sort of democratic education.

    • Shawn says:

      @Adrienne: Thanks for the kind words. I have heard of Sudbury school, and I’m definitely going to do more research as to how we can scale that model up!

  • [...] highly recommend watching Shawn Cornally‘s talk “Pointslessness: The Future of Education Without Coercion or Toy Economies” which overlapped with many of the ideas in my talk but from a completely different [...]

    Omar reminds me of JD. Years ago I had a student named JD, a college senior, who did an independent study with me in computer science. He took a ridiculously complicated, but theoretically important, data structure from a research paper, and tried to implement it. This data structure was about 15 years old at the time, but had never been implemented before. He worked on it all semester. He did fantastic work, and more than earned an A+ from me…and he felt like a complete failure. He never did get the data structure to work. I tried to convince him that he wasn’t a failure, tried explaining the nature of research, that the value of research is what you learned from it, not whether it turned out the way you initially planned, but I don’t think he ever believed me.

    Wow…nice job! But…Rebecca Black? Really?

    One thing I’ve often wondered about is the widespread acceptance of SBAR. Sure–some teachers may start pushing it and some students may understand its versatility and usefulness, but what about those who resist it? So many students have, for so long, been conditioned to expect school to be a place for instruction rather than discovery, that I don’t know if we can really expect an overhaul in the immediate future. Of course, I hope I’m wrong…any insight?

    • Shawn says:

      @M Rees:

      Yea the Rebecca Black point got obscured because of time. I was trying to show that Omar doesn’t need to care about our school when he can just put his muon detector online and get into college that way.

      Students do resist it, they’re used to gaming the game, but at least SBAR is a game worth playing. I believe that reformed assessment is one part of a great change to our school systems. I changed over the course of one week, and it changed my classroom that quickly, so, yes, I do think it is reasonable to expect immediate change, and I’m super pumped about it.
