How Will You Inspire Your Students to Be Curious Lifelong Learners?

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." Walt Disney

We live in an incredible age. The digital revolution in education has given us access to the knowledge of the world. Anything you want to know is just a few clicks away. As educators, one of our jobs is to inspire students to ask questions and explore answers. In the perfect world, these questions lead to answers that lead to more questions.

Almost a year ago, I wrote a blog post about using lesson hooks to engage students. I shared a few digital resources that I use to engage, motivate, and inspire students.
This post started me on my a journey connected to Curiosity in the classroom. I've been fortunate to facilitate some professional development sessions and I've started to organize some resources connected to Curiosity in the Classroom. I still have more questions than answers, but that is a good thing. I am learning.

Here is what I have so far, what would you add to this growing list of resources?
  • Explore Curiosity PD HyperDoc - Staff Development Exploration
  • Curiosity - Resources and websites to support creative exploration and student choice.
  • Activities - Activities and ideas connected to student choice and curiosity in the classroom.
  • Explore - Books, videos, and websites connected to curiosity and inquiry.

"My favorite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities." Mario Testino


  1. Inspiring students & teachers to curious is an ongoing theme in my workplace. I used Wonderopolis, when I was in the classroom, to help students continue to be curious and to start talking about the inquiry process.
