Meme: Passion Quilt

Silvia Tolisano from Langwitches tagged me for this meme by Miguel Guhlin. I have been challenged to find or create an image that captures what I am most passionate for kids to learn about. (That Silvia is always pushing my thinking! :) Here's the rules:

Passion Quilt Meme:
1. Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about...and give your picture a short title.
2. Title your blog post "Meme: Passion Quilt" and link back to this blog entry.
3. Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.

My answer verbally would be: I want kids to become 21st century thinkers and learners. I want my classroom to be a flat classroom where the possibilities for creating and contributing are limitless. I couldn't figure out what that would "look" like in one image, but then I looked around my room the next was right before my eyes:

"Flat Classroom"

What are YOU passionate for kids to learn about?

You have a nice addition to the photographic quilt. I like the fact that they were absorbed in such a way that they didn't seem to notice you and your camera behind them!
