Video about Curiosity

Click here to watch an interesting video about curiosity. Although the speaker, Seth Godin, talks about a lot of things besides just education, curiosity is a huge factor in student motivation, and he speaks eloquently about why it's important. Also, about 2 minutes in, he raises an interesting point about education. "For seven, ten, fifteen years of school, you are required to not be curious," he says.

I have to say, I'm not sure I agree with that, and some of the other things he says, but I am sympathetic to his point. Check out the video, and let me know what you think.
