How Did Jad Abumrad’s #ISTE17 Keynote Inspire You?

In my blog I often talk about how we need to send students on meaningful learning missions and help them discover how to make a meaningful life. I was so excited to see ISTE keynote, Jad Abumrad, inspire teachers to help students learn what makes a meaningful life. Jad Abumrad also talked about getting students to commit to the path their questions lead them rather than on the answers. I asked other ISTE attendees what inspired them about the keynote. Below is a video with some of their responses. Today, I hope to collect more insights to add to the video. I’d like to thank @ThierryUWI, @EdtechMason, and @Stackupscore for sharing. Follow @ShellTerrell on Periscope to see other ISTE video highlights.
