Starting fires – passion and experiential learning

A passion for learning is a hard thing to teach.

It’s something that’s ignited.

As parents, we see this potential in our kids. As educators, we see it in our students. We continually search for a key; something that creates a spark and turns it into a fire. It’s a fine line. A yin and yang between hoping young adults find this passion of their own accord, and trying to facilitate it within educational structures.

The desire to learn, apply knowledge, and ultimately, move it forward, is essential. Not only because it embodies what we want the next generation to be, but also because it’s critical for success on any level. Today’s competitive advantage isn’t in having knowledge, but rather, understanding how to use knowledge.

Preparing students in this regard is straightforward. You simply create this kind of environment. There’s no trick to it. You make passion, inquiry and creativity a normal, everyday thing. At LCS, we have two tools for doing this. The first is having teachers who love what they do.
