Goal: Craft a Message for Your Passion Project

Goal: Craft a Message for Your Passion Project

Welcome to Cycle 7 of The 30 Goals Challenge: Make it Meaningful!

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” – Ferdinand Foch

Goal: Introduce a project or event you created based on your passion and vision.

Accomplish this goal: Create a short video or graphic introducing us to a project you are passionate about. Go a step further and have your students design social media videos and graphics introducing us to their passion and projects where they need support. Design social media graphics on Canva, use a video editing tool like Blender, or you can hire someone to make a video for you cheaply using Fiverr.


In Chapter 20: Spread Your Message of The 30 Goals Challenge, I share ideas on how to craft a powerful message about your passion and spread your passion through social media.

I have quite a few passion projects I organize for teachers and social media is a key. I helped begin Edchat in 2009 and created this video for it. Edchat impacts millions and I even received a Bammy Award for this Twitter chat, which sparked over 400 Twitter chats.

The 30 Challenge was founded in 2010 and below are videos associated with it. This was a video I created about 3 years ago with a simple editor and not in the best quality but still over thousands of educators have viewed it.

This is a recent high quality video about The 30 Goals Challenge. Thank you to Bob Greenberg of The Brainwaves Video Anthology for this hi-definition and short video interview.

The latest project I have founded is Edspeakers, to help spread diverse voices at education conferences, on podcasts, for trainings, and consulting. The incredible board members include Rusul Alrubail, Philip Cummings, William Jeffery, Valerie Lewis, Jaison Oliver, Sarah Thomas, and Michael Benavides. Below is a video created by board member, William Jeffery.
