Meme: Passion Quilt

Caption: My Class Can Touch the World

I was tagged by Derrall Garrison for Miguel Guhlin's Passion Quilt. In this meme, I'm supposed to find an image that encapsulates what I'm passionate about and also what captures what I want my students to learn.

This image of a hand holding the globe up to the sky sums up my latest passion: using the Internet to connect my students with others around the globe. When I was in grammar school, I loved having pen pals in Sweden, South Africa, Illinois, and Missouri. It helped me see children who were in many ways the same as I was, but in other ways having very different experiences.

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of many teachers around the globe this is rather easy. I see some of the same excitement in connecting with other children that I had. I'm passionate about connecting with teachers who are looking to make this the best experience possible.

3 Simple Meme Rules:

  • 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.
  • Title your blog post "Meme: Passion Quilt" and link back to this blog entry.
  • Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.
The five people I'm tagging are:
