How watching “C Street” helped me write my blog! (and if you want to know what Becky is doing watch it yourself)

So last night I thought how in heavens can watching “C street” ever help me in this blog in concern of “learning and technology” or even one or the other!? low and behold  a scene occurs in the first couple of minutes to help me out! The characters are a couple of high school students (or the high school equivalent in the UK) and one says to the other…. (try to read this with a Manchester accent) “What do you go to school for anyway, they don’t teach you anything”.

What a loaded question/comment! What does it say about “the system”?  How is it relevant to adult learning”? Do we figure out that answer as a result of “life lessons” or is there a change in the institutional approach we must take? What does it say about the facilitator? What are we doing wrong to make a young adult feel that way? How can I make a change? Is it possible to make a change in my lifetime, with the many hurdles we face as facilitators?

Way too many questions to answer tonight, but many to ponder!

Thanks “C Street”!

well here I am! Took in all the info today and am still overwhelmed with all I have to learn. Phoned my friend bumped into Brent and they both said the similar thing. Just write.

A step at a time and the thought will become more cohesive. I also told Brent thast I was going to watch “C Street” and he said watch that and write about it so that’s what I’m going to do! See you soon!



The beginning!
