…to cultivate curiosity! We are all naturally curious. Our job as educators is to bring the natural curiosity back out in those (students and teachers) who may have been constantly told to hide it, and those who have for various reasons just forgotten it was there. In this TED Talk, chemistry teacher Ramsey Musallam (@ramusallam) does a great job speaking about this and reminding us that if we can see the world through the eyes of little children there is no limit to what we can learn.
It took a life-threatening condition to jolt chemistry teacher Ramsey Musallam out of ten years of “pseudo-teaching” to understand the true role of the educator: to cultivate curiosity. In a fun and personal talk, Musallam gives 3 rules to spark imagination and learning, and get students excited about how the world works.
