What Ignites Curiosity?
An engaging, excited teacher. A well-framed question. A path of investigation. An explanation of relevance or connection to an interest. These are well known. What's missing is the vehicle for them.
Meet The Journey
It's a 60 second video that provides you the answer to "Why do I need to learn about this?" and a learning path with links to what is worth knowing about a question.
When you have a good question and want to ignite curiosity to learn more, create a Journey in response or select one from Discover to take students down a personalized learning path.
The path turns teachers into learning DJs. Curate the best content you can find from the internet into a set of clickable directions that students follow while tracking their progress.
It's just long enough for teachers to show enthusiasm, describe relevance, frame essential questions, and introduce the path. What isn't it good for? Curiosity-killing lectures and answers!
report better student engagement and improved learning outcomes when they align their class materials to what makes students curious.
