It took a life-threatening condition to jolt chemistry teacher Ramsey Musallam out of ten years of “pseudo-teaching” to understand the true role of the educator: to cultivate curiosity.
In a fun and personal talk, Musallam gives 3 rules to spark imagination and learning, and get students excited about how the world works.
Rule 1: Curiosity comes first
Rule 2: Embrace the mess
Rule 3: Practice reflection
Ramsey Musallam, as a high school chemistry teacher, expands curiosity in the classroom through multimedia and new technology. His mission is “to meaningfully integrate multimedia into a hands-on, inquiry-based learning cycle” and to empower other educators to do the same. Musallam is a vocal advocate for tools like flipteaching, tabcasting, video podcasting and screencasting in the classroom.
