Lack of Motivation on the Mountain of Education December 13, 2008

Filed under: Cairo Kids,Education,Ministry Stuff,Youth — charredsmore @ 2:54 am

I have been stepping back onto the mountain of Education recently. I’ve noticed quite a few things at the high school that I really dislike. One, a lack of a desire to learn. Hey, I’m not even pretending to say that when I was in high school I LOVED learning. Certain subjects, yes, not all. The students lack motivation, because they lack vision.

Here is a tool that I think would help – the ActivBoard by Promethean. Perhaps I love technology a bit too much [cue song from Napolian Dynomite…”I love techonology”] but this activboard would be stinkin’ amazing to have in class. Check it out.


So, yeah, let’s pray it in since I am pretty sure I don’t have an extra 2 grand sitting around, and I don’t think the Cairo School District does either. Jesus, hook us up.

  1. Appreciate Life, Achieve Excellence! Life is Excellent!

    We have been Provided with amongst “The Very Finest Of Things That Life Has To Offer”.

    We have to Appreciate with Gratitude, the Precious Moments that Life Bestows us With, Each Day, Moment by Moment.

    By Appreciating Life, We are Achieving Excellence; We are truly Reciprocating the Excellent Virtues that we have been Endowed with, and Utilizing these for The Universal Constructive Progress and Meaningful Benefit of our Wonderful Universe and its Wonderful People.

    Make each moment “Count”, each moment “Matter”! Count & Matter, like nothing else!

    Calibrate The Precious Moments, they truly “Count”, they truly “Matter”, each Moment encapsulates and reflects “Treasures Beyond Compare” !

    Pursue your objectives with a steadfast belief and confidence “at each and every instance”, whether in “Thought” or “Action”!

    Always endeavor to make a “Difference”, carve a “Niche”, the “Difference”; the “Niche” that incredibly matters!

    Fill your World with Excellence in each “Thought” and “Endeavor” for Universal Meaningful Benefit and Constructive Progress

    Pursue your objectives with a steadfast Belief and Confidence at each and every Instance, whether in “Thought or Deed”

    Best Wishes,

    It seems that hardly anyone wants to learn, and those that do are using it as a means to an end, not an end in itself.

    Proverbs 2:6
    For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

    Proverbs 1:21-23 (New International Version)

    21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out,
    in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:

    22 “How long will you simple ones love your simple ways?
    How long will mockers delight in mockery
    and fools hate knowledge?

    23 If you had responded to my rebuke,
    I would have poured out my heart to you
    and made my thoughts known to you.

    Proverbs 10:13-15
    14 Wise men store up knowledge,
    but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.

    You get the idea…
