Mr. Steed's 6th Grade Computer Class Blog
A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

As shown in the 4 clips below Volkswagon and their research department at http://www.thefuntheory.com show that Technology and FUN can change people’s attitudes about things they don’t normally do or want to do.

A)  If you ANALYZE the videos, How could we incorporate more fun and come up with an experiment that we might be able to pull off here at school?

B)  If fun make people do things they don’t want to do and do them better, why are schools so resistant to fun?

C) If you remember the other fun theory things, which was your favorite? Piano Stairs, Bottle Bank Arcade, Deep Trash Can, Slide, Elevator, Shopping Cart, or Speed Camera Lottery? Why?

D)  Speed Camera Lottery was scribbled down on a paper by a regular guy.  For next year’s contest, what would you enter and why?

(You must write 5 complete sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. A) I think we can make school funner by having something on the tables every time you finish your work and get 100% on it you insert it into a little slot and you get some sort of prize and it shows you if you got all the answers right on a screen.

    B) Because schools want kids to learn but if they are having fun they problem wont pay attention or be too destracted.

    C) I think the Shopping Cart one if the best because i love to skate and people don’t really know how to but its probably safe seeming how its mounted on a cart and cant slide underneath you so people will probably be able to get their grocery’s a lot faster and leave easy.

    D) i would enter 30MPH because people shouldn’t go to slow or to fast so they would be able to drive the perfect speed limit and be safe. and people would be try to go to slow and try to raise the speed limit

  2. a.WE can make a skate board zone.
    b.to be safe.
    c.the slide becuase it looks fun.

  6. A) If you ANALYZE the videos, How could we incorporate more fun and come up with an experiment that we might be able to pull off here at school?

    D) Speed Camera Lottery was scribbled down on a paper by a regular guy. For next year’s contest, what would you enter and why?
