To me, creating Projects that are meaningful for each child within provided time frame and skill sets is the area I would like to learn the most.
I believe Every child has innate passion, but they tend to lose interests, once they are “forced” or “tasked” to work on assignments that they do not care. I would like to have each child develop long-lasting passion and playful mindset, by transferring project ownership including ideation to kids.
However, I have run into difficulties before, as some kids think of a massive project that requires a lot higher level skill sets than they had at that time. Due to limited time we had during camp, we had to work hard to reframe and resize the projects which can be meaningful for kids.
I think that helping kids develop a challenging, but not impossible project scope based on their own interests are critical to build and maintain motivation for kids.
