What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’?

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’? | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
It’s the hunger for learning rather than raw intellect that distinguishes Extreme Learners from the gifted. Intensely motivated and harboring a breadth of interests, they also consider ignorance a temporary and reparable condition.

Some of us know how to provoke a love of learning.

“You combine my love for my family history and my love for trees and this living legacy project has captured me,” Hart said.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Who could ever forget the panoply of the civil war with the personalization of it on NPR and also the grisly problem of taking care of the dead. So many deaths a whole change in the way of taking care of bodies. I got in trouble once for having a "faux" reenactment soldier of each side to the classroom just to liven up the unit.

This CityLab article and the embedded maps show the rhythms and patterns that make city life so beautifully complex.  The Center for Advances Spatial Analysis has compiled numerous maps, time-lapse videos and other animations to show flows of urban life.  These are great resources to visualize the 'spaces of flows.'
