For the Love of Learning: Gratitude, Conversation Hearts, and Community

Blog Post created by Renee Carney Employee on Feb 9, 2018

Valentine's Day is an opportunity to express endearment towards the ones we love. It’s a time to recognize individuals for the presence they have in our lives! A valentine is often romantic, but it can also be a symbol of gratitude and adoration.


How do gratitude and adoration tie in to learning, you may ask? As human beings, we possess a passionate need to learn, and we recognize that we learn best when we leverage the individuals and collective knowledge around us. In turn, others feed our love of learning!


How often do you recognize those who have fostered your love of learning?  We’d like to encourage you to join us in expressing your affection for individuals or groups of people that have nurtured your learning. It could be a past experience, or a current experience. You may have one or many. Just pick one, or all, of the following, or find your own way, and share it out!



A Community Badge

We’re changing the user badges for three days (Feb 12-14th) to conversation hearts!


The same conversation heart images are available in this blog for you to copy and tweet.  Connect your tweet to the great community of learners by mentioning @CanvasLMS or @GetBridge and using the hashtag #LoveLearning


In the Canvas Community or blog destination of your choice.


Wherever you are in the world—for the love of learning’s sake—we hope that you’ll wake up Monday morning to a flood of love and a desire to share more!


Keep learning,
