Many times I try to recollect my school memories, and one thing I find amusing is that I was never interested in what ever was being taught in the class (except few..). Never figured out the reason, but one thing I realize that its deadly difficult to keep the audience attentive even for 10-15 minutes. Teachers were doing it for the entire year, over and over every year.

I still certainly dont have a solution to it, as I am not yet a teacher neither a good public speaker, however here are some points I will be working on

  • You must generate interest and curiosity
  • Systematically open some Gaps in their knowledge, and then fill those gaps over the time.  (borrowed from Made to Stick –  by Heath Brothers)
  • Ideas wrapped in stories fly high, and have long life expectancy

Are we training our teachers enough to be effective? To tell stories? has a mission to Democratize Education. And Teachers are inevitable part of my goal.
