Homework: We Dream the Future

March 5, 2012 14 comments

Your homework for the next three days is to interview as many different kinds of people as you can and ask them those two questions:

  • What is your dream or vision for the future?
  • What are YOU gonna DO to make it happen?

Capture the interviews on video and bring the video files into school so we can make our own “We Dream the Future” movie.

“Why ideas are sparks” Daniel

February 29, 2012 Leave a comment

I think ideas can be called sparks because ideas are the thoughts

 that spark to your mind but you need to use that ideas (spark) to make                                                              the action (The Fire).  So what i am tying to say here is that ideas are like sparks because you need sparks to make fire as well as you ideas the make actions. Ideas are like sparks also because they come quickly shooting in your head but sparks are not fire because you need to do something with that idea to make it in to actions that are possible and something that is not like talking to Obama to change the SOPA law. That was just an example.  But you could do that if you can.

Sparks  quickly come to your head because every thing you do hopefully gives you an idea a spark a quick thing that you suddenly think about. Like maybe if you are in school you might think about work or homework and if you are in a mall you might think about buying something or if you are home you might think about just going to sleep. That`s if you are tired.

Why are we watching this series?

Here is episode one of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution so you can watch it again if you like. But, why are we watching it?

  • Because Jamie is a very creative person in the way that he cooks and creates recipes, the way that he tries to solve problems and the way that he gets people’s attention.
  • Because Jamie’s “ideas and actions can cause a shift in thinking and change the course of history” (the central idea for our PYP Exhibition).
  • Because Jamie is a modern day hero!
  • Because food is so important.

Ms. Angela showed me this website and it looks great. There’s lots of ideas for experiments you could do at school or at home. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens tomorrow. This afternoon was great!
