What is your personal philosophy?

For the past several semesters, I’ve been using a version of 26 Questions Every Student Should be Able to Answer, from TeachThought as an introduction to Tech Lab. I like the idea of asking the students to examine their own ideas of what it means to be a learner (and a human) and then to reflect on why asking ourselves and our future students these questions is important.

Mostly this exercise is for community discussion (how are we alike? how are we different? how does personal interpretation come into play?) and personal reflection. But I collect the answers, with no identification, and I enjoy seeing a collective view-point of my class.

Here are the Personal Philosophies of Tech Lab Sp2017:

  • work hard and you will succeed
  • work hard and be successful
  • do what makes you happy
  • everything occurs for a reason
  • never give up
  • we are all privileged and hindered in some way, shape or form
  • be kind first, you can always go back later and be right
  • live your own life and be yourself
  • live with love and be aware of others, be true to my faith
  • live life to the fullest, but with respect
  • be there when people need you
  • see others how Christ would see them
  • just keep pushing, there’s a rainbow somewhere
  • treat others with respect at all times
  • treat others now you want to be treated
  • golden rule
  • screw it
  • see justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God. it’s not about me
  • journey before destination
  • make things easier for yourself and others
  • be kind to everyone
  • know what you expect and what is expected of you
  • alway be happy, life is short
