While many teachers begin by creating their own content and videos, most start by sifting through free online sources. Singapore's 21st-Century Teaching Strategies (Education Everywhere Series) Adrian: I think it is important to make school fun. And when school is fun, you don't get kids waking up in the morning and saying, "Do I have to come to school again?" So we embrace technology, because it helps us make learning more engaging. I believe that when kids are engaged, when kids are interested, that's where learning takes place.
