These are anime mouse pads with squishy bewbs to rest your wrists on
“You see this class? A perfect example of an abominable waifu. No personality, generic looks, and no redeeming features whatsoever. I want to be seeing at least Asuna tier of waifu from all of you or don’t bother coming to class.”
@Pangbot, *Blushes* Yeah she's pretty great.
Tbh, thats a really bad teacher. You dont make a scene and embarass your students like that.
I understand, the guy was dumb for bringing it.
But that is not the way to handle that. At all......
@Majesticmoose00, yea it was
@Majesticmoose00, what would be the appropriate response then? Because in conventional psychology he likely won’t bring it to that class again. We learn not to do things once we’ve had negative experiences associated with them.
@The Common Shaman, Not always. If a teacher did this to me I would keep bringing it just to show that I don't care about his opinion and to see him get annoyed by it.
But maybe I'm just a sociopath.
@The Common Shaman, bringing the student out to the hall and speak with them alone. It is still a negative experience. Tell him to put it away and not to bring it again paired with an appropriate consequence.
Follow though if it happens again. Not socially demolishing him. All that does is make the student resent the teacher as a person. It is WAY worse tham the negative alternatives.
@Whole Inn Juan, maybe you’re just annoying.
@The Common Shaman, as a conventional psychology professional why do you think using an anime mouse pad should be looked back on as a negative experience?
@Majesticmoose00, I understand that there are alternatives but if a teacher feels that is an effective method of discipline, why should he not be allowed to engage in that? He’s not going to be socially demolished. Have you heard of consequences? Punishment is supposed to hurt. He’s going to go home and think, “that was embarrassing, I’m not gonna do that again” and he’s going to dislike the teacher for a bit. It’s not permanent damage, he learned a lesson
@Whole Inn Juan, when did I ever say that? I’m talking about the way the teacher handled the behavior, not the fact that he brought some weeb titty mouse pad to class. I have a bachelors in behavioral psychology and a minor in neuro. You don’t need to pull professions out of your ass
@The Common Shaman, notice I did recommend an alternative negative experience. I totally agree that there should be a consequence. There is just no reason to use a cannon when something smaller will do.
I just dont imagine this being effective even if this is not the first time the guy brought it.
This would probably escalate the behavior, not deter it.
I imagine my students would bring in a waifu body pillow next time.
@Majesticmoose00, if you are punished for doing something and your immediate response is to do it again, you’ve got some maturing to do, and I don’t think a slap on the wrist is the answer.
@The Common Shaman, it sounds like you dont have students.
Trust me, the bad kids do things over and over and severe punishment does little to nothing for them. It sucks, but positive reinforcement works best for troubkemakers.
Small punishment works great on the good kids. If my top students get in trouble, they remember it all year long. Probably longer.
Sever punishment doesnt work well for either type.
@Majesticmoose00, I don’t need students to understand human behavior. That’s a ridiculous argument. I’m not saying that “small punishment” doesn’t work. Because it does for some people. But sometimes a kid, student, whoever needs a serious wake up call. Sometimes you just need to experience that pain just once to guide you to not do that thing again.
So I don’t think a teacher is wrong for using any form of discipline. Nor do I think a teacher is “bad” for more severe punishments
@The Common Shaman, students dont need to understand human behavior. The teacher should.
@Majesticmoose00, they both should have some understanding of human behavior just from being human, but I don’t know how that’s relevant.
@The Common Shaman, it is very relevant for a good teacher.
@Majesticmoose00, right. But how was what you said relevant to the conversation- was what I was asking
@The Common Shaman, reinforcing that the teacher was bad because he wasnt doing anything to fix a behavior problem, only escalating it. Also supporting the statement with behavioral psychology and classroom management skills.
@Majesticmoose00, you aren’t very knowledgeable
@The Common Shaman, where is your evidence for that? Seems like an opinion like the rest of your posts.
@Majesticmoose00, I’ll call the morge, they got another body to put in the grave after this murder is done. Shït lol
@The Common Shaman, well he's certainly never gonna get laid now lol.
@Majesticmoose00, I mean my opinions are based largely upon fact and my experience. And is your argument not just your opinion as well?
@The Common Shaman, no, it is based on, as I said, behavioral psychology and classroom management books written by researchers and professionals much more experience than myself. My experience is in there as well but that is not the basis for the comment or reasoning. Therefore mine is not just an opinion
@Majesticmoose00, that’s interesting because that’s exactly where I got my statements from. I’ve studied psychology for 7+ years. You don’t get to label your opinions as psychology just because you’ve got a soft spot in you
@The Common Shama, what part of psychology? There is a broad spectrum and most of it doesn't deal with the classroom.
@The Common Shaman, you don't get to say you know education just because you know psychology either.
@Majesticmoose00, I’ve studied behavioral and neurological psychology. It’s disappointing when the vast majority of people who don’t know how the human brain works assume they understand psychology because they have kids or something.
@The Common Shaman, cool, I studied educational psychology on the road to becoming a teacher following my degree in biology (just about a year, not the main focus). Been teaching for a few years now. Most of educational psychology deals with conditioning strategies because direct methods are either ineffective or not allowed. Example: you mentioned not doing things after a negative experience, that is very true when talking about something like pain. Obviously not allowed in education.
@The Common Shaman, i do have a fairly good understand ing of the brain as well (biology and education requires such). I doubt I am at the same level as a person studying the brain specifically, but I am far from ignorant.
@Majesticmoose00, all I said was that a teacher should be able to discipline his kids how he wants- because you said he was a bad teacher for his choice of discipline. Somebody isn’t bad for doing what works- you have no idea the circumstances or what the teacher is even actually doing. You’ve assumed I don’t know what I’m talking about; and have chosen moral justification of being “nicer” to slander somebody who believes differently
@The Common Shaman, btw, as far as neuropsychology, wouldn't that be kinda limited in this instance? Sure, pathways are made which will discourage actions based on previous negative stimuli. But does it end there or is there more? Because that much we agree on. There should be a negative consequence.
I know that if your negative experience is powerful enough, it will make the association with the teacher and possibly the entire classroom experience (specifically this class) have a negative association. That is why they urge you to go light on the negative aspects.
@The Common Shaman, not at all. What the teacher is doing is pushing the student away on a psychological and social level with his disregard for his student based off of something super small.
Even if this is not the 1st time it was brought, embarassing a student in front of the whoe class is a horribly stupid idea for that teacher. He could even get himself in trouble for this action.
There are so many other things that the guy could do which would be more effective for controlling his class, building rapport with this student, and dealing with this super insignificant situation.
There was a fly on the wall and this guy got out his cannon.
We can assume he is embarassing the kid based off of the caption to the picture. We all know exactly what is going on based off that information. Remove that caption, or rewrite it, and my statement could possibly change. As it is, the teacher is an idiot.
@The Common Shaman, if you read any book, speak with any experienced educator, take any class to find information about embarassing your student in front of the rest of their peers it will always be, "never do that". in every way you can possibly say it. This is just one of those things that is ineffective for fixing a behavior, dangerous for your career, and naturally seems like a good idea at the time.
It is not a good idea.
This is like arguing with a customer in retail. Satisfying now, doesnt make your point, and can cost you your job.
@Majesticmoose00, maybe someone left it and he's trying to give it back?
@ReeseBobby, and that would work if the caption was different.
@ReeseBobby, imagine if the caption was this:
"Coworker showing off his new mousepad. Tech support people are _________."
All of a sudden it is all different.
@Majesticmoose00, I disagree wholeheartedly with what you’ve said and I have the statistics and life experience to prove it otherwise. Have a good day good sir and or ma’am.
@Majesticmoose00, how do you know that the caption is accurate? I'm just giving him the benefit of the doubt.
@ReeseBobby, there is no way to know. Which is why I said my comment would probably change if the caption did.
@The Common Shaman, have a good one!
If you dont mind, I would love to see the statistics so I can learn something new. Where can I find them?
@Majesticmoose00, my psychology books I’ve been reading for the past 7 yeas of my life. Take a crash course on behavioral psychology or something. Because we’re not taught that psychology is magically different in educational settings
@The Common Shaman, au revoir!
@The Common Shaman, thats fine.
Book name(s) and page number or chapter will suffice though. Just wanna check it out if you dont mind.
@The Common Shaman, Adieu.
@Majesticmoose00, fair enough, I just don't think it's wise to say someone is bad based on what dubious meme captions imply they're doing.
@Majesticmoose00, it’s easy to use google nowadays right? Try psychology for dummies, all the pages
@The Common Shaman, so, no particular statistic?
Just general psychology?
@Majesticmoose00, whatever floats yer boat
@The Common Shaman, cool, no data.
Thank you for your opinion though.
@Majesticmoose00, if that’s the world you want to live in mang
@The Common Shaman, i wamt to live in the world where you teach me something new by providing ANY evidence for your claim.
Would you like some of mine?
@The Common Shaman, you could start with reading research or articles my dr Richard Curwin. He studies behavior disorders.
You could also reach a book called what great teachers do differently. Mainly chapter 5 and onward.
You could take a class in educational psychology. You may even get useful credits for it.
You coukd read the work of harry wong (unfortunate name).
That would be a good start.
@Majesticmoose00, listen I’ve read more than what is needed to understand what I am talking about. I don’t need to open any of your pseudo-psych book your English teacher recommended. Nobody is special, or exclusive to the realm of psychology- save for somebody who has a disorder- if it applies in my world of psychology it applies in yours. You’re trying to discredit human physiology with the idea that I don’t understand what you’re talking about because you’ve slapped “educational” in front of it. Maybe you should try morality instead of psychology. It would suit you
@The Common Shaman, if you dont understand that certain situations require different strategies for dealing with the human mind then I think you wasted your time the last 7 years.
Education is not a single unique special flower. It is similar to manager training in business or childcare in that you need to make behavioral adjustments to yourself to those you are in charge of. Harsh negative reinforcement is also discouraged in all these instances.
Also, where did you get the idea I did english?
I said Biology dude.
So not pseudo science stuff either. Actual science.
Also, once again, the action of the teacher would probably cause more problems than it solves. It may not even solve the behavior issue, just excalate it.
@Majesticmoose00, again, in whichever world you choose to dilute yourself, by all means do so
@The Common Shaman, appropriate application is not even close to the same thing as diluting.
Btw, I have been the one looming for concrete evidence. I am the one seeking a reason to validate changing my stance. All you have done is generalize.
Show some evidence or something. Offer an idea that is based on more than the experience of 1 students personal life/opinion.
@The Common Shaman, "the books I have read" doesnt support a case anymore than "I once heard a person say".
It means nothing if someone else cannot validate that it exists.
At least give me the name of one of your previous books. Then I can have an idea where you get your stuff and take ot from there.
@The Common Shaman, isnt science important to someone who studies neuro psychology?
Verifying claims with evidence.
Being able to cite reliable sources. Not resorting to word of mouth and taking things at face value?
Give me a reason to believe you my friend.
@The Common Shaman, dude, you're being quite argumentative about this. If you have credible information, just lay it on us and show up Majesticmoose00. If not, don't act like a child and get all pissy
I see nothing wrong with that. If the teacher is reprimanding him, there is no law specifically stating that anime mousepads aren't allowed. The teacher is being a dïck about it.
@Diabolik, her tits are even reasonably covered. I doubt there's a rule against boobie mouse pads
The actual context for this pic is that the teacher had the same mouse pad as his student and wanted to let everyone know
The year is 2148 and we see a new required class on Anime tiddies
SAO Progrssive Asuna is amazing
I always wondered, are these comfortable?
@AmigoTaco, They’re insanely comfortable. The support really does help your wrist, especially if you spend a lot of time on the computer whether it be gaming, surfing, or doing work. Even if you just do it once a week those mouse pads do help. Had issues with flat mousepad causing small pain in my wrist during game nights. Those 3D mousepads changed all that and I get no pains at all. 10/10 would recommend.
As a former teacher at a middle school, if I saw a kid using this, not only would I laugh, but I would ask him to not bring anything worse.
Of course it’s not the teacher is weebing out on why the student didn’t let him know his waifu came in mouse pad form
