Curiosity is the seed from which everything else grows.
Think about it… How many times have you found yourself curious about something that resulted in exciting and genuine learning? How many times have you learned something you weren’t curious about? See the difference?
If we can allow ourselves the opportunity to feel curios about technology, we’re on the road to doing the same for our students. Check out the TED Talk below where acclaimed educator Ramsay Mussalam talks about the three rules to spark learning:

Our students have the ability to change the world!
There are kids out there right now, who are using technology in ways we can’t even fathom.

There are kids like Taylor all over who are re-imagining the world they live in in order to make it a better place for everyone. With the right environment, these could be our kids!
