As CEP 812 and my coursework in the MSU Graduate Certificate in Educational Technology comes to an end, I have been asked to reflect on how my Passion Quotient and my Curiosity Quotient (Friedman, 2013) help me instill passion and curiosity in my students.
As a teacher-librarian, my role is a little different than classroom teachers because my role is about passion and curiosity. Students come to me when they are passionate or curious about a topic. I feel it is my job to make sure that their experience with research, technology and learning does not turn that passion into frustration.
As a final project, I have created an infographic representing how my own passions and curiosity inform my professional actions and interactions.
As always, feedback is welcome in the comments section.
