Creating Passionate Users: Random Tuesday Links: "There's a very short video clip the SXSW folks put together, edited from my opening remarks there. It's not exactly the way it happened in the talk -- they cut things and rearranged things -- but it does show a couple of the slides about The Suck Threshold."
More on Kathy Sierra's talk at SXSW. After subbing today for a high school theater class, I wish I knew how to create passionate learners. Some of the students were motivated and engaged. Some were bored -- of course, having a sub is often a clear signal to goof off. Some of the students were taking the class simply to fulfill the requirement for a fine arts credit. Too much of today's "schooling" offers students too little inspiration.
