 Continuum of Purpose: Fostering a Meaningful Life

 Continuum of Purpose: Fostering a Meaningful Life | On education | Scoop.it
The whole sense of purpose is bigger than self. When you have a purpose, it has a broader reach, is self-fulfilling, and gives you a meaningful and purposeful life.

The purpose of learning is about learners being prepared for their future and reaching their fullest potential as lifelong learners. This means that they have a voice with the confidence to express their ideas and opinions so they are heard and taken into account in any situation.

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 25, 2015 8:40 PM

I have long been an advocate of finding activities that promote creativity and innovation in students.  The seven key skills Tony Wagner lists for students don't involve any specific content.  While I do believe these are vitally important, it seems unlikely that they will replace specific academic standards any time soon.  Because fostering creativity has been an important part of my life, and I have seen it do wonders in the lives of students, I would definitely encourage my teachers to utilize teaching methods and activities that enable this to occur.  Interdisciplinary learning, team collaboration, risk taking, and cultivated intrinsic motivation are definite assets to students in the real world.  But in our present situation we as educators need to find ways to pass on these valuable lessons while still teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic.
