Snow as a metaphor for learning

One might suggest that I like this video because it's 90 degrees outside my window today.

But that's not it at all.

I saw this video today as part of a presentation by Michael Wesch. He talked about how education should inspire a sense of wonder.

Watch that video of snow in Wellington again. Look at the surprise, the wonder, on the faces of the people there.

Does our teaching inspire a sense of wonder?

Does our teaching create within our students a desire to find answers?

It should.
