Conversations #52 - Passion in Education


55:59 minutes (25.63 MB)

This week, we discussed passion in education. What makes up passion, how is it related to learning, how is it sustained and how is it related to giving/helping others? Lisa was unable to join us today, but will be back next week. We were joined by Alice Barr of SEEDlings. We also discussed the SEED program in Maine, and how it is perpetuating the passion for many.

SEED packets can be found at http://www.actem.org/pages/Actem_Seed/index

Catch SEEDlings at edtechtalk.com on Thursdays at 7:30 - 8:30 pm EST.

What would you do with a magic wand to change education? That was the topic for our conversation this week. It was from a question posed to Lisa by David Warlick. Alec Couros and Paul Bogush joined us. Although we didn't stick to this topic per se, there was much conversation around change in education and school. The folks in the chat room kept thing going as well.
