I have had several consultations with parents this semester about their boy not fitting into the classroom setting. Some of these problems have been a teacher-pupil mismatch. Other problems have been maturity issues in the child. While other noted concerns are ADHD and learning disabilities.
In this TED talk, Ali Carr-Chellman pinpoints three reasons boys are tuning out of school in droves, and lays out her bold plan to re-engage them: bringing their culture into the classroom, with new rules that let boys be boys, and video games that teach as well as entertain.
