Knowledge transfer to student’s brain doesn’t happen in classroom in spite of massive workloads prescribed for teachers
Teaching is not the system of learning transfer but this is the performance of motivation, instruction and cognition. It means schools are running without the system of knowledge transfer. Thus, teachers are working in the classroom without the effective system of learning transfer. As a result, they are over stressed, burning out and facing the massive workloads in school system. Fix the defective system of classroom operating mechanism for high performing students and happiness classroom. Don’t fix and criticize the teachers.
School can change the livelihood of people in the community if knowledge learnography is processed perfectly in student’s brain circuits throughout the school years. But education is functioning in school system on the basis of two dimensions such as teaching and homework. School hours are mostly spent on teaching activities and brainpage is not processed in the classroom. Homework is given to students for reading, learning and practice. Teachers and their high class teaching are focused in school system for students’ high performance. So, they are always facing the hard challenges of work stress, massive loads and long hours in school system.
- Lesson planning for five different classes for three days a week
- Differentiating lessons for 30+ students in each class
- Constantly checking data
- Constantly documenting everything
- Maintaining positive classroom culture
- Maintaining good classroom management
- Planning and engaging multi-week projects that align to curriculum
- Ensuring those projects are completed
- Testing students, sometimes monthly
- Incorporating STEAM into every lesson
- Spending no more than 10 minutes on a whole group lesson every day
- Making sure I meet with every student in small group every class period
- Staying on top of grading
- Staying in constant contact with parents
- Making sure I follow IEPs, 504 and RTI plans
- Documenting everything some more
- Covering 50+ standards in 180 days
- Using all this “great” technology in meaningful ways in each lesson
- Building relationships with students
- Attending professional developments
- Attending weekly staff meetings to learn about something else you SHOULD be doing
This is not a comprehensive list, and while to the untrained eye it might not seem like a lot, let me put it in prospective. I teach math and I have 30 students in one of my classes. It took me an entire 90 minute planning period to grade an assessment that they took. I LOST a whole planning period grading ONE assignment for ONE class.
Voice of burn-outs
This school system has been designed for high performing teachers. Is it the school of knowledge transfer for high performing students? Certainly not ! The voice of teacher’s massive workloads is not heard in school ecosystem. This is why I am burned out, this is why there is a teacher shortage and this is why my mental health and happiness are suffering. I need to be able to live my life without the soul-crushing weight hanging over me. I deserve to be happy again. I need time with my family again. I need time to take care of myself again. In this way, one of the teachers expressed his pains and grievances in blog writing with hash tag teaching. This blog was very long but I selected a few paragraphs to show the map of teacher’s massive workloads.
Silence is the voice of personal space to achieve perfection of life. Peace and harmony also come in the society from the intuitive state of silence. We can take part in hot discussion and huge energy is consumed and wasted without achieving anything. Massive workload is running in school system but teacher’s silence is considered as the weakness of job acceptance and the fear of unemployment.Happiness Classroom
We know that the nation’s future is in the classroom. School teachers do their very best in the classroom and they are hard working and amazing in performance. But the demands of education system are exhausting and relentless. The results of this pressure are stress, anxiety, mental health issues, burn-outs and early exits from teaching profession. The loss of school leaders and great teachers is of huge concern and it happens all the time. The pressure on teachers and leaders in school ecosystem is extreme for high academic performance. Now it’s time to recognise that this was just the start if our education system is to have a viable workforce who are well resourced and freed to conduct knowledge transfer and ensure that every child can reach his or her potential in brainpage development and academic achievement.
The teacher must play the role of task moderator in the knowledge transfer of school system. Students are engaged in brainpage making process and learning will be complete in classroom by using the dimensions of brain learnography. Teachers working as task moderator in brainpage school may get some reliefs from mental stress, massive workloads and long hours. Students will be transformed into small teachers and they will reflect green worksheets for school leaders and classroom teachers.
Merry Christmas to all principals, teachers, students, parents and whole school ecosystem !!!

Happiness Classroom ! Book is the transfer source of knowledge and student’s brain is the transfer target of learning. To be high performing students, make brainpage in collaborative classroom by applying the seven dimensions of knowledge transfer. The motor science of knowledge transfer should be launched in the classroom for the learning development and brainpage modules of Autistic or ADHD students. Let the students use motor knowledge to make smart brainpage in the classroom from book to brain direct learning transfer. The cyclozeid of knowledge transfer is rehearsed in the classroom to produce high speed zeidstream in the working mechanism of brain circuits.
