In this day and age, the teaching methods have been evolving from the chalk and board to the Power Point and digital projectors. However, getting attentions from students has been a challenge of these computer-generated visual aids. Some say that technology has detached the learning process because it does not engage in the classroom.
Now, students in Philippines have an effective solution to get eyes on the screen. Some marine students in ICCT College use sexy pictures of girls as background pictures of their Power Point reports.
Without a doubt, the photos catch the attention of students to listen to the reporters or at least, not sit on an armchair. The photos belong to sexy stars and social media sensations. In fact, one of the photos belong to a popular pornstar – Mia Kalihfa.
However, as a teacher myself, I think the photos are more of a distraction than a tool for teaching. I bet, the students will remember more the photos of attractive girls than the lessons itself. I can imagine the classroom setting, the students might be howling for the seductive spectacle.
On the other hand, if the students will not learn the lessons after the report, I don’t blame the students. It is the fault of the education system itself which allow a very static setting in the classroom, but this is another story.
If these photos circulates online, I am pretty sure die hard feminists will complain about objectify these women. However, we must also understand that the Marine Transportation student population and the current seafarers’ community is dominated by men. Added to that, the Philippine society is very “macho” is a sense that manliness can be manifested by showing interest to women.
But anyway, in a meme point-view, this very interesting. As the caption says, “Reporting Level: Hokage”.
