>"See anon? I told you math can be fun!"
>"ANON, WAKE UP!"
Thanks for waking me up op,
for a second there i thought i was in a shitty spin-off universe
You been drawing shapes and mumbling to yourself about the Riemann's hypothesis colluding with the illuminati. Look, I don't want to butt into your life but, I seriously suggest getting help.
I have an idea for a story with this subject
not EQG related
>implying it being not eqg related is a bad thing
>you were sleeping at the desk in front of the pony princess we all know and love/hate, Twilight Sparkle
>"You fell asleep again. Is this really that boring?"
>you rub your eyes a bit
"It is when you already know all of this. Then again, Cheerilee's students are almost the same exact way. They just don't care to learn this stuff."
>you let out a yawn and get up from your seat
>"I just don't understand. I used to love learning about all these numbers when I was a filly."
"Well, according to history, things were a bit... calm back then. Nowadays, everything is too flashy and 'interesting' that normal teaching is just too boring for ANY young filly or colt. Not even my teaching could help them."
>you look at the chalkboard in front of you and get lost in deep that
>an aspiring teacher who was warped into a land that shares the same name with an African city
>after getting settled into the world, you tried to use your training for a good use
>Cheerilee was a little hesitant, but soon accepted you as her assistant
>over the next few months, a new set of younger students entered her early morning classes
>unlike the ones later on in the day, these foals are like kindergarten students from your world
>and, sadly, they share the same problem
>with everything being so 'innovative,' it becomes increasingly difficult to teach these young ones
"If only you found a way that could stick to the guidelines of the educational system."
>oh fuck, you thought that out loud
"Uh... yeah, educational guidelines. Can't do any extravagant ways of teaching."
>"What are you talking about?"
>Twilight picks up a book from who knows where and opens it up
>"Any teacher may use any means to help their class learn any subject, so long as no harm may come to any of the students."
>she slams the book shut
>you dash on over to Twilight and pick her up
"There's no guidelines, so I can teach them how I learned my math when I was a kid!."
>you start twirling her around out of joy
"This is going to be fantastic!"
>all of a sudden, you let her go
"Wait! how am I going to recreate these methods? Its not like I can just make them all individually learn that way. This is a class, and this needs to be a group thing."
>Twilight quickly recovers from your drop
>"Anon, what's going on?"
"I need to figure out how to teach kids a certain way. With this world's technology, I don't think its currently possible. I could be wrong, though."
>"Anon, we can probably assume it's-"
"Shut up, Twilight. We don't even have ways of showing the screen onto the board because LCD screens aren't even invented yet."
>"Anon, what are you even-"
"Enough, Twilight. I just need to project images onto something. If I can't use technology, what can I-"
>why can't you move?
>you quickly realize a purple aura around you
>Twilight soon hovers next to you and looks you straight in the eye
>"Alright, Anon, what are you even talking about? If this is about teaching, then at least explain yourself clearly!"
>her horn is glowing with magic
>"Oh no, not this again. You're explaining this to me now!"
"Alright, alright, I'll explain. Just let me down first."
>she abides by your request
"Ok, so... when I was a kid, my teachers were awful. I couldn't learn a damn thing. However, I had something in my pocket all the time, wherever I went. Without realizing, I was actually learning vocabulary, math, and all that good stuff... without using those stupid educational programs."
"Nevermind that, just... let me ask you one thing. Can you project images into reality by using magic?"
>"You mean... like your imagination?"
"Yeah, like animals, numbers, etc!"
>"Well... yeah. any unicorn can with practice."
>time to plan things out
