How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning | 21 century education | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

 

Read more, very interesting, a MUST:

Fato é, que algumas praticas, como encorajar a democracia na sala de aula por meio da discussão moderada,  são milenares e ainda muito dificil de serem adotadas com uma comunicacao nao violenta em diversos aspectos.

Quiçá as recomendações sobre video, posts, fotos, etc...

Sei que alguns educadores tem se empenhado para traduzir as angustias da geracao do seculo XXI, mas o movimento ainda é timido e mereceria ganhar um apoio publico.
