I have an idea that if we started early, we could turn kids that only want to listen to music and party also interested in school from a young age and well into their teen years. there is already an example of this - 'the periodic table song.' if this was implemented at an early age, then the kids would be more attentive, as at younger ages they are more obedient, of course. say at the grade four level, they could learn this song and remember it for the rest f their schooling? it stands to reason that earning the numbers will reveal the amounts of electrons and protons too, which is great for grade four, yes? Then, if they were to observe that kids would always listen to older kids in the same school uniform, they could get, for extra credits or a replacement for detention, have the older kids prepare lessons for the younger ones that they would actually listen to, of course. this is because the kids with bad marks will almost always be rebels and respected by the younger kids, of course. maybe if the older kids were to sit with the younger ones, and mock the teacher, constructively, the younger ones would listen to and remember things? Then, there is my favourite, 'role playing.' if the kids were to play a game like a table top role playing game in class, it is more interesting i think than console games - definitely more fantasy. they could research things for their characters in the game, and then play the game with a bit of rules and input from their imaginations, keeping them very interested... well, i am not really sure how it will work, but it should reward hard work. i am not talking about some little mouse that runs around with questions, i am talking about a marine in a drug zone that has to solve a combination lock to get some assault rifles for grilling the dealers with rules for engagement that resemble 'game system mechanics.'
