Passion-based learning begins with the conviction that the best learning happens when children are inspired by and connected to the work they are doing. When children are encouraged to generate their own learning opportunities or projects, they bring a natural enthusiasm and commitment to engaging in and completing their work. Too often, children are trained out of their passions in school-based settings that divorce subject-matter and ideas from their applied and real-world contexts.
Passion-based learning allows children to engage in projects that inspire them and capitalize on their strengths. This approach prioritizes the joyful and connected learning we believe is at the heart of our work.
