Clickers

Interesting enough people can be taught to behave or do things in a particular way using a similar method as B.F. Skinner used to train numerous animals with a clicker back in the 1940s. This was done by a gymnastic instructor who used it to train her athletes how to correctly complete moves and did so in an effect non-insulting way. Even though there was some opposition from a concerned parent this seemed to be an effective method of teaching any animal (human or not). I'm curious as to what else this could be applied to and how effective it would be. It is already somewhat popular with dancers and gymnast but is mostly limited because of people closed mindedness on the idea. If people were more open to trying this technique it could speed up and perfect almost any physical movement and could even be applied fields such as mathematics and lab sciences.
