Passion Quotient (PQ) and Curiosity Quotient (CQ)

For our final assignment in CEP 812, we were given some leeway in using any technology to “create something using something” based on our understanding of Thomas Friedman’s passion quotient and curiosity quotient. Friedman (2013) explains that those who will succeed in today’s fast-paced, hyperconnected world are “those with more P.Q. (passion quotient) and C.Q. (curiosity quotient) to leverage all the new digital tools to not just find a job, but to invent one or reinvent one, and to not just learn but to relearn for a lifetime.” Determining how PQ and CQ play a role in our work now and in the future was a very fitting conclusion to CEP 812. As a school administrator and someone without my own classroom , I had to take a different approach to this assignment and consider how I instill passion and curiosity through a facilitator and management role, through motivating and learning together with other teachers and colleagues.

Here is my final Tackk creation highlighting what PQ and CQ mean to me!
