Meme: Passion Quilt

I've been recently tagged by Doug, Patrick and then today, David. It's been everywhere and dodged me until now. I thought I had the perfect photo if someone ever decided that this game of tag should come this way until I checked and found it was © copyright. 🙁

So, I've found a CC version that is pretty similar - more on that in a minute... here's the rules.

Passion Quilt Meme Rules:

1. Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
2. 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.
3. Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
4. Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.

Collaboration And Linking With Others Makes You A Star! 

"Hand Star" by Chris.P. 

The thinking behind my photo was that it had to be about learners, be they students or educators or anybody. How do they/I learn best? By collaborating and linking up with others - you can learn by yourself but not in isolation from everything/ everyone. Everything you learn has a connection to someone else. Also, every time you learn/ create something, it becomes more powerful when shared/ linked with others.

Who am I tagging? Let's go for some of the most passionate people I know on my network.

Alexander Hayes
Ken Rodoff
Leigh Blackall
Chris Harbeck
Konrad Glogowski

I just hope that Alex doesn't throw up my Open Educator logo as his example - it could end up well utilised in the near future anyway.

    I just did a ‘reverse image’ search out of curiousity on my image to see if anyone was using it… and here I find it, with such a great, inspiring message. Thanks for using it and amplifying it – peace and have a great day!

      It’s a very cool image – I’ve also used it as a motivational lure when dealing with a friendship group of 5 middle primary girls who were having problems. I told them that if they could get through to the end of the term without any dramas and sticking to an agreement we had drawn up I would take a similar pic of their hands together in a “friendship star”. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to take that photo. 🙁
