My professional life became so much more rewarding and easier when I stopped being a lecturer and became a facilitator of learning. Inspiring talk Mr Ruhl, thank you.
Today is my first day at school and also my first time. I hope I will become the teacher that every students like and loved.
How insightful was this TEDtalk! As an aspiring English teacher, this video, although it has been published for a long time, it's still valuable and completely motivational for me. Thank you , TED, for including such wonderful people with wonderful things to share! I truly love this channel.

As an educator since 2003, this Tedx has ignited my motivation to continue doing more out-of-the- standards teaching. And now as a doctoral student wanting, researching and learning to become a transformative and progressive educator, Mr Ruhl has encouraged me. This Tedx is shared with the cohort of colleagues and let's see if they share my passion to become transformative.

This is very inspiring to watch. If only every classroom was set up like his:)
So inspiring. Thank you
There are favorite female science teachers. This works when the children are younger - centers. When they are older and in HS they only have so much time per elective and per lab. If you are dissecting animals, doing chemical tests everyone has to be on the same page. It has to be structured and teacher centered although the C's can be part of the care. Otherwise there would be chaos. I dont know if hes ever worked in an inner city high school with many at risk special ed students. Probably not!
Much obliged for sharing that superb knowledge, sir. In my humble opinion from being an educator, knowing what students ‘need’ is one of the fundamental keys to get involved with them. ‘Knowing’ them will gain more love from students and it’ll be da best way to engage with them, rather than being a mandatory teacher that will create an unpleaseant circumstaince in the classroom. It is a natch that we shoulda shift the teacher-centered into the class-centered, and also shift the paradigm from the old-fashion methods of learning into the newest ones, exactly by integrating them by tech and the new requirements that worlds’ expect from the generations. We all know that this is a digital era but the more important is not only by mastering the technology but also creating inovations or creative learning methods in order to catch students attentions or in another word to smash the boredom away of the learning process. The way you teach is fabulous. Thank you for sharing us ^^,
i got a feeling he failed to motivate the audience
In one word Expert

It is the way teaching must be.
Thank you for this! Can anyone offer any 'unit range of activities' for languages please, just to get a jump start on this way of classroom teaching.
I know a believer when I hear one...Thank you Joe!
I’m visualizing this with social studies and ela
