With all the speaking I’ve been doing, I couldn’t help but remember my live session with the amazing and passionate Sir Ken Robinson. Those two hours of passionate discussion and debate about one of my favorite topics PASSION, gave me, and everyone who heard it, so much to say. And, some of the most provocative discussion was BEFORE the session during a lively 140 character exchange on Twitter.
The entire #edchat was the perfect warm-up for the main event . This does not begin to cover everything we learned in preparation for Sir Ken Robinson, but here is a sample of the conversation that took place:
And of course, I added my own ideas for the future Passion-Driven book again:

And now the conversation is continuing in the Passion-Driven Book Club!
I fall asleep tonight with a smile on my face knowing that passion is alive and well in the world of teaching and learning. The book club is moving along nicely, hitting chapter three with the same message as ever: Passion Matters!
Lots to dream about here!
