This past week I had an opportunity to sit and chat with a group of high school students about meaningful learning and WOW was it powerful! I was blown away by their incredible insight.
Directly from the mouths of students:
This conversation has been playing back in my mind all week. We try so hard to figure out the best strategies to engage students in meaningful learning, yet how often do we ask them? How often do we really listen to what they have to say? When these students started talking about learning, they were passionate. They want to learn. They know how important it is for their future. How can we tap into our student's passions? How can we tap into our own passions and bring our best teaching and learning to the classroom each day? How can we make learning come alive for every kid that steps into our class? What an honor we have to educate our youth and to make a lasting impact on how they view learning. We need to listen to our kids....they have a lot to teach us.
