However, this viral innovative method makes learning joyful for the students. The video is an excellent example of how far a teacher can go to help students understand their subjects.

A unique teaching style benefits students greatly in the learning process. Previously, a video of a teacher was praised after he devised an innovative technique to boost his students’ confidence. The teacher asked the students to look into a box to find out who was his favourite student. They walk toward the box and return with a smile. They seemed overjoyed with the results. The smile on every student’s face left many wondering about what was there in the box. Finally, it was revealed that the box contained a mirror. The teacher’s message to the children was clear that all of them are his favourite students.
