James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Laugh and Think

Posted on | January 30, 2012 | No Comments

I have just wrapped up another round of exams in my classes at Zayed University.

And I can’t help but look at the results and ask if I have achieved my goal.

The goal being very simply to make my students laugh and think.

And of course there is the application of the laughter and thinking into some real world possibility.

How often to we link the comic side of things with the thinking side of things?

Not often enough is the short answer.

Well there is an answer to this challenge.
