I like to use funny video’s as part of my ‘How to Motivate, manage & Engage Your Students‘ seminar. The following video titled ‘First World Problems’ always proves popular with teachers.
The context that I show this video in is a discussion on how to reward your students in such a way that they don’t learn to value the reward instead of their learning. Often a student will start off their schooling being very responsive to rewards, but by the time they get to high school it’s like you have to offer to buy them a Ferrari before you can get their attention.
As you watch the video I can guarantee that at least one of your students will come to mind.
The video goes for just under two minutes. Enjoy!
