This week the Inspired Learning Project team is adding a new feature to the blog: a microcast. Microcasts are a short, condensed version of a podcast structured to share a 1 - 2 quick, but important, ideas. Educators are a busy group and this media is designed for listening on your commute into work, during your shuttle service to soccer practice, or something to think about while having lunch.
Microcast #1 is inspired by Adam Grant, a business professor at UPenn and author of the best-selling books Give and Take & Originals. His work focuses on fostering strong cultures, improving interpersonal relationships, and supporting people as they discover their unique talents. Recently he tweeted:
The ILP team spent some time exploring the idea of "Big Talk" and how we can leverage it to continue to develop real work that matters for our students. Along the way we also discuss Nipmuc's upcoming work with Learning Adventures and the creation of a pre-K-12 Learning Adventure aligned with the MURSD Portrait of a Learner. Give it a listen and share your thoughts.
