Spent the day at Sea World. I found it interesting that compared to when they were in Ohio every show discussed education and how coming to Sea World helps conserve endangered animals. The entire experience was about education and really addressed education in an entertaining way and with the excitement of why you would want to learn more. It’s like I cannot even go on vacation without being in teacher mode but it really is something to keep in mind.
Shows were only 20 minutes and many times we left saying, “Is that all?” (Since I cheated and am writing this late this theme becomes important as I relate it to my classroom later.) What stood out in the message was educational through the entertainment but also consumable as in you could really take in new info in those 20 min. segments.
Something to ponder.
