Mountain Boarding

“The NVIV (Next Vista Inspiring Video) series of posts are written by Rushton Hurley and designed to provide students and teachers with fascinating discussion prompts.”

In A Mountain and a Board, Rushton features Jason Lee who loves snowboarding so much that he wants to do it year-round.

He gives the following prompts to accompany this video:

“Is there something that you enjoy that you could do in a rather different way? That is, can you bring a creative insight that allows something totally new to emerge?

Don’t worry if you can’t think of anything now. The more important lesson is that you should be ready for a cool idea, and when one happens, write it down and then try building on that idea.

So, what might you have learned, built, and refined by a year from now? Whatever it is, there’s the possibility that it can become a path for a very cool future.”

This is a great way to have students focus on things they love to do and try to find ways that they can do it in different seasons. Or maybe they need to find different locations. It would be good to have students share their interests and they might find others who are interested in the same things. Together, they may come up with ways to make it better or different.

Please check out the video and think of other prompts you might come up with. Please share.
