19:10 to: Lisa Nielsen
I think I must share it on my blog

19:16 to: Kim T AZ
Finding a fellow passionate teacher is a wonderful gift....I include Peggy G. in that list...always there to share the excitement!

20:18 to: Kim T AZ
Right back at you Laura

20:22 to: Laura Sheehy

20:25 to: Barbara Bray
Great story! I love it. I'd like to share this with some middle school kids in a high poverty middle school I'm working with. If she can do this, then they can do some things too.

20:42 to: Kim T AZ
The trick, not let the "non-passionate"teachers get you down....

20:45 to: Laura Sheehy
what a great picture!

20:46 to: ColetteC
wouldn't that be cool to have a day where every kid has a day to wear their passion t-shirt to school!

20:49 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
She is a passionate cutie pie.

20:51 to: Lisa Nielsen
Can we get this powerpoint? I want these pictures of "What passion looks like."

20:58 to: Peggy George
all of today's links will be here:

21:10 to: Laura Sheehy

21:14 to: Peggy George
Angela will post these slides in slideshare

21:16 to: angela maiers
She was absolutely infectious!

21:20 to: McTeach (Karen)
Barbara...I've introduced my middle schoolers to the idea of a 20% project (based on Google's 20% idea). I'm going to point some of them in this direction!

21:20 to: Laura Sheehy
cool Peggy!

21:23 to: angela maiers
She changed our lives...literally!

21:28 to: Barbara Bray
Yes - kids have creativity and passion before school even starts.

21:31 to: Peggy George (Slideshare Presentations by Angela Maiers)

21:40 to: Donelle
She's adorable

21:41 to: Norman 1
nice idea about the 20% like google

21:44 to: ColetteC

The title is perfect!

23:36 to: anne-marie.armstrong

23:54 to: angela maiers
We call it the "p" word discussion!

24:03 to: Laura Sheehy

24:24 to: Norman 1
passion is embracing what you are doing

24:27 to: Peggy George
I like that concept "the P word" :-)

24:38 to: Cathyjets
yeah - I teach at a religious affiliated college - whole diff connotatoin

24:40 to: Norman 1
passion of christ

24:58 to: Glenn Hervieux
Passion for Jesus

25:01 to: Lisa Nielsen
I love the word passion. I was so excited when I first discovered the idea of passion-based learning

25:05 to: Kim T AZ
just a thought....professional teachers should be passionate about that they do

25:08 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Angela's passion is overflowing and infectious. But I'm more like Amy, not so touchy feely, but definitely passionate about my teaching.

25:08 to: Donelle
passion is what i want my students to have for learning

25:14 to: Peggy George
passion drives many things we do!!

25:24 to: Laura C
passion is what takes a teacher from being good to great!

25:28 to: Norman 1
all human being have a passion for learning

25:31 to: Laura Sheehy
wouldn't it be a wonderful deal if all teachers were passionate about teaching!

25:33 to: Lisa Nielsen
I'm glad you stayed with passion

25:37 to: Alexis
Passion is what needs to be infused in our classrooms...

25:41 to: Norman 1
schools just beat it out of them

25:48 to: anne-marie.armstrong
Passion is the right word.

25:55 to: Glenn Hervieux
@Amy & Anglea - glad you kept the word

25:55 to: Kim T AZ
schools or the system...fed gov, etc?

25:58 to: Barbara Bray
When you believe in something you are passionate about, you live and work it. Everything changes. Kids want to learn -- especially if they find their passion.

26:03 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
We have to find ways to promote students passion in learning

26:03 to: Cathyjets
that whole discussion over words and what they mean is a wonderful start

26:04 to: Len H
Passion is Perfect!

26:08 to: Angela (kyteacher)
I agree with everyone glad you stuck with it.

26:09 to: Peggy George
I agree anne-marie!!! Passion is definitely the right word!!! much deeper than engagement

26:13 to: Norman 1
enough of the word.....what do you do?

26:22 to: Rob Theriault
passion means that the wheels are spinning...engagement means you've got traction and are moving forward

26:34 to: Cathyjets
u are so right - the pa word is diff from all those other words

26:36 to: Eileen K
Barbara Bray would you say we have passion when we are in the flow?

26:39 to: Cathyjets
p word

26:44 to: Laura Sheehy
I like that @Rob Theriault!

26:46 to: Deb White (MN)
I'm an older first-year teacher who was known for her passion for teaching and learning - with the daily grind and b.s., I feel my passion waning...I hate that!

26:52 to: Rob Theriault

26:57 to: Kim T AZ
deb - we can all relate

27:04 to: Barbara Bray
@Eileen K - Yes. I am in the flow and am passionate no matter if I get paid or not.

27:06 to: Larry A
Passion gives you the energy and enthusiasm to overcome any problem, suffering, obstacle you may get while you pursue your desires, goals, visions

27:14 to: Kim T AZ
that is why it is so important to find other passionate teachers!!!

27:15 to: Lisa Nielsen
Love that, "Engagement is fleeting. Passion is lifelong"

27:16 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
Too many educators and students lose their passion for learning

27:21 to: ColetteC
Exactly Larry!

27:21 to: Barbara Bray
That's why all of you are here on a Saturday before the holidays.

27:22 to: Peggy George
I love the ways you are describing passion in the chat!!!!

27:24 to: Glenn Hervieux
Sometimes the busyness of the profession and life can affect our passion

27:29 to: lwascher
that word is what caught my attention to join this session

27:37 to: Eileen K
Absolutely... we can't put a price on passion, it is a gift!

27:37 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Deb White Do what you know is right. Let your passion shine through.

27:40 to: ColetteC
So true Barbara - always looking for inspiration!

27:41 to: Sheryl Ryder
don't let administrivia kill that passion

27:43 to: angela maiers
Right, right, right!

27:43 to: Cathyjets
kids will get it - they know the difference and they are passionate about their own things

27:44 to: Donelle
@lwascher me too

27:47 to: Doug Peterson
Passion implies a far deeper commitment than the other terms.

27:52 to: Norman 1
so nice to have a presenter give up the mic:)

27:53 to: angela maiers
See...she keeps me balanced!

27:54 to: lwascher
it matches my feelings towards my job and my own passion for learning

27:56 to: Barbara Bray
@Doug so true

28:02 to: Kim T AZ
most often, the passion comes from within, but we still need support of others

28:03 to: Laura Sheehy
Passion equals commitment

28:05 to: Glenn Hervieux
Passion has to do with the heart vs engagement

28:05 to: Cathyjets
if we can connect the passions they have to school.....& learning

28:07 to: Lisa @teachingwthsoul that!

28:16 to: angela maiers
We have a caller!

28:22 to: Lisa @teachingwthsoul

28:24 to: Peggy George
hooray for Vicki!!

28:27 to: angela maiers
Hi Vicki!

28:32 to: The0d0re
Somethings you'e willing to live for

28:36 to: Benjamin
interaction, diversity, openness, and autonomy

28:47 to: angela maiers
Passion is not an emotion it is a relationship!

28:48 to: ColetteC
@Glenn Kids have heart & how often do we really see it in the classroom???

29:08 to: @shamblesguru
Coincidentally had fresh Passion Fruit juice for breakfast today ;-) ... one o the benefits of living in the tropics

29:12 to: angela maiers
Great point Vicki- drive to know more!

29:15 to: Laura Sheehy
commitment to improvement and engagement and life

29:20 to: digitallearning
Passion: Engagews the imagination

29:23 to: Sheri Edwards
Passion is commitment; your personal voice shines

29:23 to: The0d0re
Angela, talk some more about the passion as a relationship

29:24 to: anne-marie.armstrong
Passion is a driver, engagement is a strategy

29:27 to: Peggy George
funny Shamblesguru!!! passion fruit juice!!!

29:28 to: Vicki Cobb
The poet Theodore Rothke said: "The notion of emptiness generates passion.

29:41 to: angela maiers
Hi Barbara! This is sooo true- you do!

29:43 to: McTeach (Karen)
Yay Barbara!

29:47 to: Peggy George
Thanks Barbara for taking the mic!

29:54 to: Kim Caise
i totally agree that you do live it every day barbara

29:54 to: Laura Sheehy
Applause Barbara!!!!

30:00 to: Kyle Pace
Students need to see thevpassion in their teachers.

30:04 to: @SandvoldAmyM
We'll get through the P word quick here and get to putting Passion into Practice

30:10 to: Sheryl Ryder
my husband doesn't understand that passion -- as a business owner, everything is abalance sheet

30:18 to: Laura Sheehy
I'm living my passion with being able to increase my learning and share that with teachers!

30:25 to: angela maiers
passion is drive with purpose!

30:32 to: Eileen K
I love hearing passion related to teaching... we need to keep each other full of hope for our students and learning:)

30:37 to: angela maiers
We love it!

30:40 to: Peggy George
it's hard to explain passion sometimes but it's always obvious when you have it :-)

30:43 to: Laura Sheehy
For me it's all about helping teachers reach and engage students!

30:46 to: Debbie
I love showing my students that I have passion for teaching!

30:49 to: Larry A
Passion can get you to do the next extra steps to make the connections so students can see what you share or new ways of seeing things

30:54 to: Stephe 1
a true educator is a learner. If you're not a learner you can't possibly create the passion and thrill of learining in your classroom.

30:56 to: Laura Sheehy
@Peggy George definitely has PassioN!

31:15 to: Barbara Bray
This topic matters that much. I agree

31:22 to: Peggy George
it's hard not to get excited about the incredible opportunities we have with technology for our kids today!!

31:25 to: @SandvoldAmyM
You are all part of a Passion-Driven Revolution. Spread it!

31:36 to: Sheryl Ryder
what tips do yo have for teachers to translate that passion into powerful teaching?

31:36 to: Lisa Nielsen
@Kyle Pace, some teachers loose their passion when they feel the system ties their hands. As you know I try to help them think outside the ban...but can be disheartening

31:41 to: Barbara Bray
@EdTechLeader Thank you! But it's not about me. It's all about the kids and making a difference now.

31:44 to: Donelle
i work with at risk kiddos and drop-out students too, and my main goal is to help them find their passion for lifelong learning, having a hunger for learning and growth

31:50 to: Kim Caise
cathy and norman, we will come back to you

31:51 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
Twitter and Facebook among others help restore our passion in education. We have to keep the flame burning by supporting each other.

32:02 to: Peggy George (Blog post by Angela Maiers: Education is for the Passionate-Isn’ It? Part 1 of 4)

32:09 to: @shamblesguru
Hopefully not just passionate about jobs or vocations ... but passionate about life itself ... from that moment you wake up ...

32:18 to: Lisa Nielsen
@cybrary Man Jerry - Agree! PLN is a key to finding your passion

32:21 to: Peggy George (Passionization: Part 2 of 4)

32:37 to: Peggy George (Passion: A 21st Century Skill? You Decide Part 3 of 4)

32:40 to: Barbara Bray
Sometimes when you fight you feel all alone. But doing what Angela and Amy are doing is the way to do it. Write. Speak. Share.

32:41 to: Laura Sheehy
PLN Is vital to keeping your passion alive too!

32:49 to: Kyle Pace
@LisaNeilsen I agree. And that's sad. All the more reason we need to be connecting with each other (just like this).

32:50 to: Peggy George (Passionate Teaching: A Gift Every Student Deserves)

32:53 to: mtechman
good point, Chris - we want the love of learning to never be extinguished

32:58 to: Stephe 1
First we need to create engagin and motivating classrooms where students are solving meaningful problems and engaging in meaningful, impactful opportunites before you can create passion.

33:05 to: April Pulley Sayre
Nonfiction starts with passion for the real world and how it works.

Sadly, I have to go. Thank you for doing all you do.

33:08 to: Glenn Hervieux
@ColetteC: And I would love to find more ways to help my 3rd graders uncover what they're passionate about. And letting them join in my passion for things.

33:11 to: Eileen K
Totally agree with shamlesguru,r enthusiasm is contagious!

I'm a teacher educator, I see people drawn to the profession for sometimes the wrong motivations - can we grow passion in educators or does it have to be part of their makeup??

remember all of these links will be in our link today:

I suppose passion involves an extraordinary level of caring towards a purpose or cause

33:55 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
We have to find the passion in each of our children and students

no that is just an image

Peggy, I don't see this deck on the wiki or can you point us there?

Drive is a good word for it... an inner reason to engage in something

34:44 to: Barbara Bray
Passion is hard work. I know. But I love it and cannot see myself not doing this. I am committed. Some people think I should be committed. :o)

@mtechman....awesome, thank you!

37:18 to: Eileen K
Kids love making heart maps and seeing the teachers heartmaps!

37:23 to: Stephe 1
Will be heart-mapping when I get back in Jan.

37:25 to: Lisa Nielsen
I like a heart map.

37:33 to: Barbara Bray
I will share heart mapping with my teachers. I love it! I need to do that myself right now.

37:35 to: McTeach (Karen)
@Stephe Me too!

37:41 to: Norman 1
do them in google apps and share them everywhere!

37:49 to: Donelle
any blogposts about heart mapping?

37:52 to: Laura Sheehy
love that idea @Norman 1

37:52 to: Lisa Nielsen
It would be neat to create a digital heart map template. Who wants to take that on? :-)

38:06 to: Kyle Pace
Great idea Lisa

38:09 to: Stephe 1
What's the resource for understanding how to create a hear map.

38:10 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I will have students make heart maps on Monday and Tuesday. I want to know their passions.

38:34 to: Barbara Bray
Find where your hearts connect - I love that. This will be great for all the walls in the school.

38:35 to: Lisa Nielsen
I agree. Find where our hearts connect. Would be neat to literally show connections

38:39 to: Deb White (MN)
Do you think HS sophomores in Biology would go for it? lol

38:39 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
Reminds me of shape poems

38:43 to: Kim Caise

38:46 to: Donelle
thank you, @ColletteC

38:48 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Love that...what a great first week of school (or post-Break) activity.

38:59 to: Larry A
Find where a child's heart connect and then show them how their heart's passion can connect with what you teach today and help them see what it can mean or connect for tomorrow

38:59 to: Lisa Nielsen
Wouldn't it be neat to do a virtual heart map where kids can connect their passions around the world? How could that happen?

39:04 to: Barbara
where can we read more about heart mapping

39:05 to: Len H
Thanks Kim

imagine doing it at a faculty meeting!

39:44 to: Peggy George
Kim will share questions for you as we go along Amy and Angela

39:46 to: Eileen K
High School students would most likely enjoy making heart maps in a Writer's Notebook for future reflection

39:49 to: Larry A
You can do this for any age group K-12, we're just used to doing it for lower grades

39:50 to: Stephe 1
I would love to createa virtual heart map that links our students globally.

39:51 to: angela maiers
Has anyone done similar? What would you add?

39:51 to: ColetteC
I see elem students open to this - but what about HS students who are afraid of revealing too much about themselves?

39:53 to: Barbara Bray
Is anyone doing a collaborative global heart map?

39:56 to: Kyle Pace
@Lisa : Let the brainstorming begin! :)

39:56 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Donelle I agree. Would be a great way to start 2011.

39:57 to: Lisa Nielsen
Peggy, what a great idea. Start with staff!

Do kids do several drafts of a heart map? I would guess that at first you think you know your heart and then you find what is really in your heart...

I am planning on having my students do digital heart maps also, we need to get all of the digital ones connected to each other!

would be interesting to see a comparison between a heart map the first day of the school year and the last... does it change for students?

41:10 to: Norman 1
skype our cllassrooms together!

41:13 to: ColetteC
@Donelle - Great idea - would help make connections with those who share your passion

41:16 to: @shamblesguru
I'd like to suggest .. don't think of "Passion" as just k-12 but k to grey .... hopefully Passion is a lifelong attribute ...

41:18 to: Lisa Nielsen
Haha. So many people said kids have no attention spans. That's cuz often education lacks passion

Yep! Writing workshop is where I first learned about passion. Smart that Amy brought this into other areas.

43:24 to: angela maiers
Patrick- you need to take the mic when Amy is done, and talk about the Passion Project with your Middle school kids!

43:52 to: Len H
I would like to hear that, Patrick :)

43:53 to: Barbara Bray
I see middle school boys who gave up in 6th grade. One boy writes F on his papers because that's all he thinks he can get. This is my purpose - I'm going to bring creativity or build a clubhouse.

43:54 to: Angela (kyteacher)
9th, 10th, 11th...not a lot of passion for learning. For most, school is just something that interrupts their day...the things that they truly care about.

43:57 to: Margo Jantzi
How about a clubhouse library?

43:57 to: angela maiers
Hi Jerry! Just saw the resource- thanks so much for sharing!

43:58 to: Lisa Nielsen
I worked very closely with Lucy and I love that she has teachers call students readers and writers

43:59 to: gladysfernandez
I would like to know more about the Passion Project with Middle School kids

44:01 to: Peggy George
we would love to have some of you take the mic at the end of the presentation to share your passion projects :-)

44:05 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Yes, our classrooms should be clubhouses.

44:17 to: Peggy George
clubhouse is such a friendly term!

44:20 to: Cathyjets
Barb - so true MS boys is where we start to lose them

44:25 to: Joan Young @flourishingkids
Hi Paula :-) yes, I agree! love the term clubhouse

@Kristin- I so want to see that! Please send a link when you are done!

My new principal has idea - Skype between feeder elem schls so that when kids hit MS, they have some connections = less bullying, less racial issues. I

44:36 to: Stephe 1
this will really add to the creation of a classroom in which learning is ongoing, not comparmental, students "own learning"

44:41 to: Lisa Nielsen
I would add to what Amy is sharing and invite experts to join the class via Skype that are found via our PLNs!

44:45 to: Peggy George (Blog post by Angela Maiers: A Passion-Driven Teacher-Student Agreement)

44:45 to: Joan Young @flourishingkids
idea..not the prescription.. that is key!

44:52 to: Barbara Bray
I have been moving desks around and setting up historians and authors. I didn't think of it as a clubhouse.

45:00 to: mtechman
So we could start w sharing heart maps!!

@Angela (kyteacher): SOOOOOO true! Maybe there should be a new conversation for HS teachers.

Building Community in the Classroom is an important start to help build passion:

45:34 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@mteachman Yes, we are going to use Skype to do that with the MS that our ES students feed into.

45:37 to: Kristen B 3
I was wondering if there is a kindle version!!

if there isn't a kindle version, i am sure there will be one

46:03 to: Patti R
is that a book title "Morning meeting"?

46:05 to: Norman 1
we do a passion research topic in senior year

46:12 to: Kim Caise
you can request that amazon offer it in a kindle version

46:16 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
Boardroom meeting is a good idea to explain why...

46:22 to: April Pulley Sayre

46:30 to: mtechman
Morning mtg is a practice from the Responsive Classrm approach

46:33 to: Barbara Bray
I'm working with middle and high schools going to block scheduling. Then they could do this. Moving MS and HS teachers to the clubhouse model is going to be a challeng.

46:35 to: Larry A
Too many times, we stop using some of the approaches used in elementary school in higher grades so we loose some enthusiasm. If you look at some presenters or trainners for adults, they use some of t

46:35 to: Larry A

HS kids are all in "the race to nowhere"

47:50 to: Cybrary Man Jerry Blumengarten
I agree that we definitely see the loss of passion in MS and HS

47:51 to: Stephe 1
so there's no kindle verison???

59:29 to: Angela (kyteacher)
Great point...and I continue to think about & challenge myself to find better ways to incorporate this kind of learning everyday.

59:39 to: Larry A
If we get to know the interests or passions of students in our classes, we can use more examples and stories that make a point of what what we have to teach and make it more relevant to more of them

59:39 to: Patrick Woessner
I have the final projects for the students; we're hoping to video tape some of them sharing their passion projects with their peers

As the session ended the definition of "passion" started to get vague again. Could Angela and Amy reinfor

1:17:59 to: angela maiers
Yes will do, also put in it the wiki!

1:18:00 to: Joseph
Thanks. Please keep announcements on Twitter

1:18:12 to: Deb White (MN)

1:18:14 to: Peggy George
and post these slides on the wiki too Angela :-)

1:18:18 to: Jon Edgeton
The poem!

1:18:31 to: Patrick Woessner
great question!

1:18:32 to: angela maiers
That is a great start!

1:18:46 to: Eileen K
KWL is a great way to find out what kids want to learn.

1:18:49 to: Peggy George
Thanks Angela! I'll add that to the links

1:18:53 to: Peggy George
and to the blog post

1:18:54 to: Greg Limperis
@Angela here is the link for the Kindle Blog posting

1:19:18 to: Lisa Nielsen
Great idea about asking kids what they want to learn. Some teachers think they can't do that cuz they have to teach to the test. I say, they can!

1:19:26 to: angela maiers
Don't Don't Don;t on every single door, hallway, worksheet

1:19:41 to: Patrick Woessner
This survey can help kids identify their interests/passion:

1:19:41 to: Patrick Woessner

1:19:43 to: Kim Caise
thanks norman

1:19:46 to: Alexis please help us to share some of the passionate work of our youth!

1:19:57 to: Greg Limperis
@angel and here is a link of mine as an example

1:19:59 to: Norman 1

1:20:03 to: Kim Caise

1:20:06 to: Larry A
Part of it is redefining roles for teachers and how to integrate students more into their learning while we have them

1:20:19 to: Peggy George
Interest-alizer :-) Cool Patrick!!

1:20:19 to: Norman 1
why do we insist on broadcast teaching

1:20:35 to: @SandvoldAmyM
The teacher is the Chief Learning Officer that guides them in all things that they CAN do

1:20:41 to: angela maiers

1:20:42 to: Norman 1

1:20:44 to: Laura Sheehy
hard to leave the great conversations!

1:20:44 to: Larry A
We do what we know how to do and what others in charge tell us are acceptable ways

1:20:59 to: Norman 1
That is nonsense

1:21:00 to: Kim Caise
love the 'CLO'!

1:21:03 to: Peggy George
great term!! CLO!!! Chief Learning Office!

1:21:05 to: angela maiers
We lead the "boardroom" meeting as CLO

1:21:14 to: Sheri Edwards
Thanks for the link patrick

1:21:24 to: angela maiers
This is fantastic!

1:21:29 to: Peggy George
we'll add that survey link to the links today Patrick

1:21:29 to: Laura Sheehy
Chief Learning Office!! COOOL!

1:21:40 to: smsegurola
which is the link

1:21:50 to: Norman 1
hwy not just ask them?

1:21:51 to: Peggy George
This survey can help kids identify their interests/passion:

1:21:51 to: Peggy George

1:21:58 to: Peggy George
it's a PDF

1:22:04 to: The0d0re
Norman - Talk some more about the "nonsense" It might be important

1:22:07 to: Kim Caise

1:22:09 to: Alexis
This is exactly what I do when I start to work with students

1:22:24 to: Norman 1
the teacher is a chief learning officer

1:22:40 to: Peggy George
that is such a great point Patrick!!!

1:22:40 to: smsegurola
it says adult version, is their a student version

1:22:43 to: angela maiers
These are powerful powerful tools. We will put them in the wiki, and encourage you as you find or try new ways to get at this relationship....share! We are smarter together!

1:22:44 to: Lisa Nielsen
Great idea to allow students to express themselves in the way that works for them

1:22:45 to: Norman 1
the teacher is just another learner in the room who has been there before

1:22:52 to: Laura Sheehy
letting kids share passion in the way they choose is a fantastic idea!

1:22:57 to: angela maiers
Great line- It is worth trying to get better at!

1:23:01 to: Laura C
Great point about letting kids share their passions in their own ways!

1:23:10 to: Norman 1
experience helps everyone but is not the only answer

1:23:12 to: Laura Sheehy
don't make them all write a paper!

Universal Design for Learning!! through this framework we all students to have flexibility in how they learn, ways to assess their learning and how to engage them in their learning to hopefully spark

their passions!!

1:23:13 to: Deb White (MN)
My students would laugh their a**es off if I used CLO.

1:23:14 to: McTeach (Karen)
No questions, but LOTS of ideas!

Giving students those options is one ways I try to incorporate student voice even in the things I have to teach...we have spent time learning about visualization techniques & I build a class toolbox f
