A Deeper Dive into Curiosity

  • A Deeper Dive into Curiosity

    Posted by Susie on August 3, 2023 at 7:12 am

    Today is our very first Thinking Thursday! 🌟

    Let’s take an exciting dive into our theme and explore the incredible power of curiosity!

    Curiosity acts as a guiding torch for learners in their Project-based Learning projects. It fuels their desire for exploration, inquiry, and knowledge, igniting a spark of wonder within them.

    Those thought-provoking questions (why, who, how, what) become their trusty companions as they seek out resources and dive deeper into the subject matter. 🔍💡

    As a catalyst, curiosity works its magic, inspiring learners to think critically, solve problems, and actively engage in their projects. They take ownership of their learning, delving beyond the surface and forging meaningful connections.

    In Project-based Learning, curiosity becomes their compass, steering them towards authentic, engaging, and self-directed discovery. And trust us, as a teacher, you might need to run to keep up with their boundless enthusiasm! 😉

    Why does this matter, you ask? Simple! This same curiosity-fuelled enthusiasm for learning will continue to drive them in their futures as they embark on career paths and studies, leading them to successful and fulfilling lives.

    Now, let’s make it actionable! What one thing do you think you can do in the next week to nurture learner curiosity? And what result do you expect from this exciting endeavour? Share your thoughts and ideas with us! 🗣️💬 Let’s spark the flame of curiosity and make a difference together! 🚀🔥

    By learning, reading, writing and doing orals

    By teaching, dancing or dancing

    If you see that the learner is curious you can give that learner an investigation to do in order for that learner to get helped
