Fun lessons?

Students would actually learn and be engaged.

I had a couple of real teachers in the many schools I went to that were like that. I still fondly remember them at age 54 and I can tell you much of what I learned and I look back at them as role models and with respect and admiration.

A good teacher is rare.

An understanding of the concept of computer programming, apparently some people don't have that.

The ability to understand that games should be interactive, and not just a story that really should've been a book or a movie.

"Press the A button for next page of dialogue" doesn't count.

Creativity and the knowledge that games should be fantasy and escapism and shouldn't try to emulate reality.

How to provide a concise answer. Egads! I decided to ask GPT the question, and it was turned into an essay.

Kuron: I was asked this question and was wondering if you could answer it for me: If you could create a computer program that could instantly learn any skill, what skill would you choose and why?

GPT: The choice of a skill for a hypothetical computer program that can instantly learn any skill depends on the goals and priorities of the individual or organization creating the program. Different people may have different preferences based on their values, needs, and interests. Here are a few potential considerations:

Problem Solving and Innovation: A program that can instantly learn and apply advanced problem-solving and innovation techniques could be immensely valuable. This skill could be applied across various domains, leading to breakthroughs in science, technology, and other fields.

Communication and Collaboration: If effective communication and collaboration are crucial in a particular context, a program that excels in interpersonal skills, negotiation, and teamwork could be a game-changer. This could enhance relationships, cooperation, and productivity in various settings.

Health and Medicine: Learning skills related to medical diagnosis, treatment, and research could significantly advance healthcare. The ability to quickly understand and apply the latest medical knowledge could lead to improved patient care and medical breakthroughs.

Environmental Stewardship: A program dedicated to learning and implementing sustainable practices, environmental conservation, and renewable energy solutions could contribute to addressing pressing global environmental challenges.

Education and Teaching: A program that excels in educational methods and tailors its teaching approach to individual learning styles could revolutionize education. This could help people acquire knowledge more efficiently and effectively.

Empathy and Emotional Intelligence: Developing a program with high emotional intelligence and empathy could be valuable in fields where understanding human emotions and motivations is crucial, such as counseling, therapy, and customer service.

Ultimately, the choice would depend on the specific goals and values of the individual or organization creating the program. The skill chosen should align with their priorities and the areas where they believe the greatest impact can be made.

What's the strangest gift you've received?

Jayenkai
Back in the late '80s, my Nan bought me this weird-ass thing called a "Magic 8-ball".
Hadn't heard of such a thing until then.
The gift went down a storm.
My Nan was awesome

Ohh, Magic 8 Ball. I never had one of my own, but had the one my Mom had gotten when she was little and they first came out. Good stuff. Had a keychain version at some point, too.

My one grandmother did not really know anything about D&D and had bought me an "Adventure". It wasn't just one, it was a pack that the retailer never broke apart when put on the shelf. It had like 12 of the exact same adventure in the pack. She didn't know any better, but the retailer should have known better and not placed it on the shelf like that. But since she bought it, maybe they did know what they were doing, LOL

Anyway, handed out all of the extras at school.

Um..

People tickling them by using the keyboard & mouse or touchpad. Then a sexual harrassment suit when somebody is looking at porn and releasing some steam.
