Passion to Purpose (P2P) is a free open-source and delightful online tool that lets learners flex their civic imagination muscles. The purpose of P2P is to help educators lead their learners through the challenging process of generating authentic questions and project ideas based on their personal interests and civic values.
Users are guided through a series of fun prompts (eg: What are you a fan of? What do you want to learn more about?). With the aid of a built in randomizer, they land on an unexpected design challenge in the form of a “How might we question”. P2P works across informal and formal contexts and disciplines. It comes with a free educator guide with lots of helpful tips and strategies for sparking ideation with youth.I recommend Passion to Purpose to all my digital media literacy educators as a great way to ignite student inquiry around topics that matter to them.
