The Element Of Fun


"Play is our brain's favorite way of learning." ~ Diane Ackerman

Who likes to have fun? Raise your hand! Come on, don't be shy, be honest with yourself! It is not an assumption, but a fact that everyone likes and wants to have fun.

For learners, having fun:

-makes learning more enjoyable.

-makes learning more engaging.

-makes learning easier.

-makes them forget that the are 'learning'.

-encourages the shy and quiet ones to participate, even if only a little.

-is contagious and will spread around the whole class, creating a great environment for learning.

-can make even the most unmotivated ones have a shot eventually.

For educators, having fun:

-gives you the motivation to climb out of bed every morning.

-makes you more approachable to learners and colleagues.

-makes it easier for you to teach your lessons.

-is less stressful in those rowdy classes.

-generates fresh and FUN ideas for activities.

-is productive and will make you more efficient at your job.

-is healthy and will spread to all other aspects of life outside of school.

Without a doubt, having fun has its fair share of merits. If fun is not your thing, then I challenge you to come up with some demerits of having fun.

Go play! Add an element of fun to your classes! We do hope that you are having fun being an educator. Life is too short not to have fun!
