This video was inspired by our desire to illustrate the common ground between teachers and students. Both groups are looking for the same objectives in education: the setting in which they learn, the way they learn, what they learn, the relevance of the material to their lives, their community and their world.
As you will realise when you see the last frame, each statement could be expressed by either a teacher or a student.
We are hoping to highlight how learning is all around us, in all aspects of our lives for our entire lives…not just at school as children.
We’re all watching this speech today and each time we see it something else may strike a chord. For me, today, it was:
You’ve got to find what you love..the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe to be great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Consider how it applies to your teaching and to your students’ learning.
