I read this recap of a talk by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in which he expanded on some of his thoughts about one of his passions: public education. He is a believer in projects and I think having projects is not just for school but should be a part of every person’s life. Here are two quotes:
When pressed by an audience member about how schools should judge student performance, Woz said they should be given one long project that spurs innovative thinking at the beginning of a semester and graded on their results.
“The value of these big projects is you learn diligence, lot of repetition. A lot of hard work results in something that’s your own. Your own. You built it. You have personal pride,” he said. “Personal pride is the strongest motivating force there is.”
I am using this tonight in my illustration for church.
