Concept Brainstorming

After we brainstormed in class about education, Joseph and me narrowed down our interest. We ended up with 2 ideas. One dealt with how to maintain long term memory with students and cater different teaching methods to different learning styles. The other one was what we went with and it dealt with how can we teach students extracurricular activities (dancing, music, etc.) using unconventional teaching tools like YouTube. So far, this is what we have came up with.
