Hate to crap on a local high school, but this is one of the most hilarious and yet sad tweets we’ve ever seen:
Oh FFS. Michelle Obama’a been gone for two months and this is what happens?
I’m not gonna pretend to know the first thing about what is going on here. All I see is a tweet that says, “love seeing PE class integrate technology.” And I think it speaks to a bigger problem – schools try to adapt to kids instead of vice versa.
Hey schools – stop trying to be hip and cool. Stop trying to speak to kids on their level. Yes, we all know children are addicted to iMachines and the days of neighborhood kids getting together and playing 3 on 3 or home run derby are long gone. But it’s not our job to adapt to them. It’s their job to adapt to us. Because that’s clearly the type of thinking that led to this tweet.
“Kids are different now. They don’t read books because they don’t have attention spans like we did in the 90’s.”
Shut up and read the book or you don’t get dinner. End of story.
“Integrating technology” is more than likely the latest buzzword administrators shove down teacher’s throats. And I’m 100% pro-technology in the classroom. Except for physical education. Gym class was the greatest 45 minutes ever growing up. Don’t take it away from kids so we can help them become mindless zombies.
Anyway, the fact that it’s since been deleted tells you that whoever is behind this account realized how dumb this looked. Which once again shows that some adults should stay far, far away from social media and stop trying to speak to kids on their own level.
