March 7, 2010

Randy Pausch's Last Lecture hit home. I have been going through a lot of medical issues right now, so it has taken me a while just to get through the fist 5 minutes without walking away from the computer. We teach our children through activities. An example Mr. Pausch gave was a "head-fake," we send our children out to play football, but what we really want them to learn is bigger than just the game. Another thing I really liked about his video was the reference to a brick wall, it isn't meant to keep you out, it is meant to keep out those who don't want it badly enough. He also worked on Aladdin which I find very exciting because I am a Disney fanatic! The end made me cry, I knew it was impossible to get through without crying, but the birthday dedication to his wife did it! What a great way to show how to take the focus off of you and pout it on to others. He gave great pointers on how to be a better person. It was definitely a great video!
