The Curiosity Project
March 9, 2014 § Leave a comment
“International educator Scot Hoffman is a big believer in the power of curiosity to drive learning. After nearly two decades of teaching around the globe, he also realizes that school isn’t always so hospitable to inquiring minds. (As Einstein said, “It’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”) That’s why Hoffman has developed The Curiosity Project, a self-directed learning experience that engages students, parents, and teachers as collaborators in inquiry.
I first met Hoffman a couple years ago during a visit to the American School of Bombay in Mumbai, India. It’s a school where inquiry-driven approaches like project-based learning, design thinking, and maker spaces are taking hold across the curriculum.”
