English. Curiosity: the quest for new ideas and information.

This post is inspired by Jackie Gerstein's great blog post: The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

This particular quote is something Jackie cites which comes from Cultivating Curiosity in Our Students as a Catalyst for Learning by Maryellen Weimer: "Curiosity is the quest for new ideas and information. Folks who are curious aren’t satisfied with what they already know or have figured out. They go after what they don’t know or can’t understand—and that missing information can become a driving need to find out."
