Gever Tulley përdor foto dhe pamje për të treguar si fëmijët mësojnë mësime të vlefshme në shkollën e tij të Punës. Kur u jepen mjetet, materialet dhe udhëzimet, imagjinata e të rinjve ngacmohet shumë dhe vihet re zgjidhja kreative e problemeve për të ndërtuar anije të veçanta, ura dhe madje edhe një Rollercoaster!

This is the exact moment
Ky eshte tamam momenti
00:12
that I started creating something called Tinkering School.
qe une fillova te krijoj dicka qe quhet Shkolla e Punes.
00:16
Tinkering School is a place where kids can pick up sticks
Kjo shkolle eshte nje vend ku femijet mund te marrin shkopinj
00:21
and hammers and other dangerous objects,
cekic dhe objekte te tjera te rrezikshme,
00:25
and be trusted.
dhe ku mund t'i besohet atyre.
00:29
Trusted not to hurt themselves,
Ku mund ti besohet qe nuk do vriten vete,
00:31
and trusted not to hurt others.
dhe nuk do te vrasin te tjeret.
00:33
Tinkering School doesn't follow a set curriculum,
Kjo shkolle nuk ndjek ndonje plan mesimor,
00:37
and there are no tests.
dhe nuk ka teste.
00:40
We're not trying to teach anybody any specific thing.
Nuk perpiqemi te mesojme gjera specifike.
00:42
When the kids arrive
Kur femijet arrijne ketu
00:46
they're confronted with lots of stuff:
ata ballafaqohen me shume gjera:
00:49
wood and nails and rope and wheels,
dru, gozhda, litare dhe rrota,
00:51
and lots of tools, real tools.
dhe shume vegla te tjera, vegla te verteta .
00:55
It's a six-day immersive experience for the kids.
Eshte eksperience gjashte ditore per femijet
01:00
And within that context, we can offer the kids time --
Ne kete kontekst, ne mund ti japim kohe femijeve --
01:05
something that seems in short supply
dicka qe nuk u mjafton
01:09
in their over-scheduled lives.
ne jeten e tyre te mbiprogramuar.
01:12
Our goal is to ensure that they leave
Qellimi yne eshte te sigurohemi qe ata te dalin
01:15
with a better sense of how to make things
me me shume dije se si te ndertojne gjera
01:18
than when they arrived,
qe kur ata erdhen,
01:20
and the deep internal realization
dhe po ashtu me ndjenjen e thelle
01:23
that you can figure things out by fooling around.
qe mund te kuptosh si funksionojne gjerat duke lozur.
01:26
Nothing ever turns out as planned ... ever.
Asnjere nuk ndodh sic e planifikon...kurre.
01:30
(Laughter)
(Te qeshura)
01:35
And the kids soon learn
Dhe femijet shpejt mesuan
01:37
that all projects go awry --
qe gjithe projektet shkojne keq --
01:39
(Laughter)
(Te qeshura)
01:43
and become at ease with the idea that every step
dhe u mesuan me idene qe cdo hap
01:44
in a project is a step closer
ne nje projekt eshte nje hap me afer
01:46
to sweet success,
drejt suksesit,
01:49
or gleeful calamity.
ose deshtimit.
01:52
We start from doodles and sketches.
Fillojme me shkarravina dhe skica.
01:56
And sometimes we make real plans.
Dhe nganjehere bejme plane te verteta.
02:00
And sometimes we just start building.
Nganjehere ne fillojme direkt te ndertojme.
02:03
Building is at the heart of the experience:
Ndertimi eshte zemra e nje eksperience:
02:07
hands on, deeply immersed
te angazhuar, te zhytur thelle
02:10
and fully committed to the problem at hand.
dhe duke u perpjekur ta zgjidhim ate problem.
02:13
Robin and I, acting as collaborators,
Une dhe Robin, si bashkepunues,
02:17
keep the landscape of the projects
kujdesemi per projektet
02:20
tilted towards completion.
qe shkojne drejt realizimit.
02:22
Success is in the doing,
Suksesi qendron ne berjen,
02:25
and failures are celebrated and analyzed.
dhe deshtimet celebrohen dhe analizohen.
02:28
Problems become puzzles
Problemet behen gjeza
02:31
and obstacles disappear.
dhe pengesat zhduken.
02:34
When faced with particularly difficult
Kur ballafaqohemi me pengesa
02:38
setbacks or complexities,
vecanerisht te veshtira ose komplekse
02:40
a really interesting behavior emerges: decoration.
nje menyre interesante paraqitet: dekorimi.
02:42
(Laughter)
(Te qeshura)
02:47
Decoration of the unfinished project
Dekorimi i projektit te pa perfunduar
02:50
is a kind of conceptual incubation.
eshte nje lloj inkubacioni konceptual.
02:52
From these interludes come deep insights
Nga keto gjera te panjohura mesojne shume
02:56
and amazing new approaches to solving the problems
dhe menyra te reja per ti zgjidhur problemet
02:59
that had them frustrated just moments before.
qe kane hasur pak me pare.
03:02
All materials are available for use.
Mund ti perdorin te gjitha materialet.
03:07
Even those mundane, hateful, plastic grocery bags
Bile dhe qeset plastike
03:12
can become a bridge
mund te behem nje ure
03:18
stronger than anyone imagined.
me e forte sa mund te imagjinohet.
03:20
And the things that they build
Dhe gjerat qe ata ndertojne
03:24
amaze even themselves.
i cudisin edhe ata vete.
03:27
Video: Three, two, one, go!
Video : Tre, dy, nje, shkojme!
03:30
Gever Tulley: A rollercoaster built by seven-year-olds.
Gever Tulley: Nje rollercoaster e ndertuar nga nje shtate vjecar
03:41
Video: Yay!
Video: Yay!
03:45
(Applause)
(Duartrokitje)
03:48
GT: Thank you. It's been a great pleasure.
GT: Faleminderit. Ishte kenaqesia ime.
03:50
(Applause)
(Duartrokitje)
