The Power of Joy

Back in November, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Dean Shareski (@shareski) along with educators from throughout Northwestern Ontario (at SeLNO, the Symposium for eLearning in Northwestern Ontario).

The key take-away for me was Dean’s concern for the missing aspect of “joy” in our learning environments – our schools.

Last week, I was so pleased to see that my friends at HWDSB had the opportunity to ponder the same message.

Shouldn’t the places where we all go to learn be full of joy?

Shouldn’t we be concerned that so many students hate school (and teachers)?

If students graduated with a love of learning, and a love of school, would it still be viable to attack public educators for political gain?

What’s standing in the way of joy in school?
