The Moral Power of Curiosity

The Moral Power of Curiosity | Education | Scoop.it

Most of us have at one time or another felt ourselves in the grip of the explanatory drive. You’re confronted by some puzzle, confusion or mystery. Your inability to come up with an answer gnaws at you. You’re up at night, turning the problem over in your mind. Then, suddenly: clarity. The pieces click into place. There’s a jolt of pure satisfaction.

 

We’re all familiar with this drive, but I wasn’t really conscious of the moral force of this longing until I read Michael Lewis’s book, “Flash Boys.”

 

As you’re probably aware, this book is about how a small number of Wall Street-types figured out that the stock markets were rigged by high-frequency traders who used complex technologies to give themselves a head start on everybody else. It’s nominally a book about finance, but it’s really a morality tale. The core question Lewis forces us to ask is: Why did some people do the right thing while most of their peers did not?

 

The answer, is that most people on Wall Street are primarily motivated to make money, but a few people are primarily motivated by an intense desire to figure stuff out.

Very interesting op-ed column in New York Times by David Brooks linking curiosity and the behavior on Wall St.


The column relates to Michael Lewis' recent book, Flash Boy.


I suggest you also read the counter argument from Todd Essig on Forbes: The Morality Of Curiosity And The Immorality Of Certainty.


Tony Vengrove's curator insight, April 13, 2014 3:35 PM

Funny, I just wrote a piece about curiosity a couple of days ago and along comes this interesting article.  Love this line:  "...but a few people are primarily motivated by an intense desire to figure stuff out."  Yes!

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | Education | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

Students first learn to write questions for before, during, and after reading, then they progress to writing beyond the text questions.

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:18 PM

Integrity is situational and there is no way that we can teach morality in the strictest sense. We can help students understand what it means to be a good person and to take questioning stances. By turning classrooms into political and cultural sites, students can learn valuable lessons as they apply ethical thinking in practical situations. In that fashion, we might end up with leadership that says we have to trust them when all the evidences suggests not trusting.

How do we learn best? This is a critical question for educators to understand and to keep up-to-date with research, and this post from the National Geographic looks at new research that shows that our auditory memory is not as robust as our visual and tactile memory.

Much more information is available in the post but the shorthand is that having students engage as many senses as possible is the best way for us to reach our learners!
