I love the concept shown in the following video. I think the FUN THEORY makes perfect sense. I also think it is a VW marketing campaign....but that works for me and I'm OK with that...
What I'm thinking about now though, is what applications does this have for kids and school?
Relevance is not the only factor that increases motivation. Fun plays a part too. What old ways can we get rid of and replace with new fun ways of getting to the same place?
Spelling lists and tests? Math basic facts? Tests? There are lots of educational escalators out there!
