I think that next year when our School (Burlington High school converts more to One on One we should keep the desks and class rooms the way that they are. in row with desks. I personnally feel like when i am in a class that i more structured i perform better then when im in a room that is all close and confined.

The Miami Heat big 3 are what can be called "over Rated". not only did they lose their opening game in Boston against the Celtics, they did it in dramatic fashion. With the Celtics leading the game at points by more then 15 the Heat substituted out Dwayne Wade one of the members of the new big 3. once Wade was out Eddie House lead the Heat on a comback, with the help of Lebron James who Managed to Drop 30+ points in his opening regular season game as a member of the heat. Even thou House was only in for around 5 minutes he and James were able to bring the Heat back with in 3 points of the Celtics, late in the 4th quarter. with about 2 minutes left in the game Wade was suppstituted back in for House and the celtics again surged a head to a 88-80 point vicotry over the covident Miami Heat.

In the youtube video RSA Animation Ken robinson acuratly describes the real reason as to why the ADHD "epidemic" is increasing over the years. this reason is that kids now a days are more pro to play video games instead of studying. with the new advances in technology kids get more of a chance to do things that entertain them instead of like the video said "boring stuff".

Stuart Hughes a rich man from australia that has nothing better to do with his time but to radically increase the price of some of the most popular electronic devices of todays world. hughes spent over 8 million dollars by cutomizing his Iphone 4 with sides made out of dimonds and entirly made out of gold. this Iphone also consists of a large pink diamond that takes the place of the only button on the phone. along with this phone, this man has made other objects like Tv's, gaming systems, watchs, sound system's, laptops, and even clothing. covered almost completly with diamonds, gold or both. i personnally find these altercations un necissary and a complete waste of money.

I personally believe that students like myself struggle with self directed learning for a couple of reasons. One reason is that there is basically no guide or teacher that is telling you to do something a certain way or in a certain time frame. When I get an assignment I will usually wait until just about the last minute to do it. This is because I have no one pushing me or telling me that I need to spend time on it. Once I have to do it I feel rushed or pressured all at once and that does not really provide me with a positive learning atmosphere. That is when I am nervous, stressed, and cramming. Another reason I believe students have trouble with self directed learning is there are a lot of distractions when there is no one around to tell you to focus. There are friends, music, computers, TV’s and a lot more electronic and non electronic devices that make it hard for students to focus on work; that to them is boring when they have something that is more interesting or more fun to do at the time.
