Nine Tenets of Passion-Based Learning | MindShift

Nine Tenets of Passion-Based Learning | MindShift | Evolution of Work & Education | Scoop.it

This is so true: "We say that we want creative, passion-driven students, yet we reward the opposite. Standards-based education stifles engagement and passion in students. While drop-outs are considered to be lazy and unmotivated, many are simply not interested because they don’t understand the relevance of what they’re being taught. We’re rewarding students who are best at obedience, memorization, regurgitation, and compliance. And those who do succeed in school often don’t know what to do when they get out. We need to prepare kids to be successful in the real world, not just while in school."
