2016 Kia Optima | Walken Closet “Big Game” Ad

My Challenge to You

Did you happen to catch this video during (or even before) the Super Bowl? How awesome is that closet.... I mean Christopher Walken is sitting in the closet... who wouldn't want that!?!?!? Yes of course it is a really huge closet and it has a secret compartment that hides a car. But enough about the closet.


What did you hear in the first 45 seconds of the commercial? Did you just hear beige socks vs colorful socks? Or did you hear something else? Go ahead, play it again.


I heard about a choice that everyone faces. The choice between being content with what you are doing, going with the flow, doing what has always been done and the choice to shake things up, be different, take risks.


I continually come back to the message of risk taking and doing things differently because I want you to know that it is perfectly okay to change things up in your classroom. In fact I highly recommend that you change things up from the normal routine. When you choose to change things up in your classroom you will increase the engagement in your classroom merely because things are different from the same routine. Don't believe me? Try it. Let me know what happens.


So how about you? Are you content to blend in with your teaching or do you expect more from yourself? You choose.


Think. Achieve. Succeed.

AMCMS Technology Tip of the Week

Don’t change what you teach, supercharge how you teach it.


Classcraft is a free online, educational role-playing game that teachers and students play together in the classroom. By using many of the conventions traditionally found in games today, students can level up, work in teams, and earn powers that have real-world consequences. Acting as a gamification layer around any existing curriculum, the game transforms the way a class is experienced throughout the school year.
