Expert Learners Make Their Own Destiny | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
8th Grade learners from Mid-Pacific Institute in Honolulu created a music video as part of a global collaborative project.

 

"Their water song project was a self-directed project based on students’ passions. It was done entirely outside of class time… before school, lunch, after school, weekends and vacations."

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The expert learners from Mid-Pacific Institute collaborated on a global water project where they were driven by their passion, goals and dreams. Kai, one of these expert learners expressed it in this way:

 

"One of the major points about the Water project is that it was completely drawn and lead by our dreams, goals and passions. We, as students and as individuals, created this project and with help of a few truly remarkable, incredible people,  we have been given the opportunity to reach our dreams, find our passions and pursue our goals. One thing stands alone everywhere you look. There's the famous, the rich, and the important. It all started with a passion. Everything can be achieved with passion, opportunity and drive. You make your own destiny." Kai
