If more kids and adults were encouraged to ask questions, there would be much more sharing of knowledge and less assuming throughout the land. Kids (and adults) need to be encouraged to ask intelligent questions about what they are curious about. This develops a lifelong curiosity that works well in our ever changing world. Heck, remember that 12 year ago, people laughed if you had a website.
I also repeatedly encourage trainees to ask any question that they have throughout my classes. Why? I have found that if someone has a question in a class, there is at least one other trainee thinking about something similar, and neither of them are actually paying attention to the class itself.
Also, as a trainer, I have failed in my job if someone leaves the training with an unanswered question.
Now, that said, they are also responsible for asking that question, since I have not passed the Karnak certification test. It is almost impossible to answer a question that is unasked.
That is what I am passionate about. Raise your hand! Ask the question!
The topic? Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
So, if you read this blog you know sometimes I have a wicked independent streak (yet I answered this question..go figure). So, I am not tagging anyone else officially. If you have something you are passionate about kids learning, create an image, blog about it and link back to this post.
So..I tag you all….go forth and meme!
