Last week I posted about passion and passionate educators after reading Silvia Tolisano tweets on passion and watching her video titled Passion in Education …make a difference! Little did I know that passion was now a huge buzz subject on my PLN? I guess I’ve been more focused on activities at school than I realized. Angela Maiers has been featuring guest bloggers on the topic Passion Driven Conversations. I invite you to visit her page and check out the list of guest bloggers like Larry Frelazzo and George Couros. You will find some great reading.
My PLN has many individuals that would qualify as passionate educators. In putting together my list of passionate educators last week, I know I could not include everyone that qualified. I listed the names of those that first came to mind. In doing so, I left off one outstanding educator in Melbourne, Australia - Jenny Luca. I really enjoy her School’s out Friday postings. She also posts on Learning happens. If you read this week’s post of Learning happens, you will see a passionate educator in action. Jenny participated in a ‘camp’ program called Creative Communication. She was working with 21 very special girls who have all made an effort to extend their thinking and contemplate how we communicate in today’s world. One outcome of the time with Jenny was an online publication called passionfruit. Here you will see the efforts of some passionate students.
What do you think of the new online publication passionfruit?
