Hello everyone. Our children aren't doing well in school because of the rising boredom it has created. Many of our students don't want to learn "boring things" and want to skip school. A way that we could make school easier and fun is to incorporate memes. Students will enjoy this new way of learning because it will add the latest trends with subjects from school. This is mainly to help learn history but can be incorporated in other subjects.

How would this help the children to learn?

Simple. Most children like memes and want to spread them with their friends. By spreading these memes with their friends they review the contents of the meme and remember it later on.

Should memes be used in every assignment?

No I do not think that memes should be used in every assignment. I do believe they should be used as a teaching tool instead of work. I say this because memes can teach a basic idea. It is harder to teach students more complex details using memes.

If it can't teach more detailed things then why use it at all?

It might not be able to teach more detailed subjects but if it can get the general idea in the child's head then the detailed parts will be easier. Imagine a child's understanding of a subject like a tower or building blocks. If the bottom/base (Referring to the basic lesson or idea in the text) is weak then the rest will crumble down. But if the base is strong, adding more layers (Referring to details like date and events) will be easier.

Is it possible to use this idea for an assignment?

Yes it is possible. If you were to make an assignment every once in a while but making the students make a meme you can increase the student's creativity. They could choose between many formats and templates to try to create a short meme explaining the subject/topic.
