The Fun Theory

Catching up on my blogs (can't you tell) I came back across a post from Naketa that I loved the first time and have loved everytime after that. It's a Volkswagen initiative called The Fun Theory. It's based on the concept that if we make the mundane more fun - people might do it more. Here are two examples:

Walking Stairs:



Recycling Bottles:



Picking Up Rubbish:



I think this is a great concept. Naketa has talked about challenging her kids to see what mundane tasks can be made more fun... I wonder what my class could come up with? They have a competition that is open til the 15th December where you can enter your ideas and the top ten entries will be revealed. First place offers 2500 Euros too!

I really enjoyed watching those videos - they were fun:) Thanks for posting them. And the challenge to our teaching they represent.

I love these videos. I'm glad I came across your post in my feedly as I'd forgotten that I'd downloaded these. I think I'll show them to the kids this week - think they'll enjoy them.
