Global #gtchat welcomed many new participants to this chat! Questions discussed included what was intellectual curiosity, how it could be nurtured, the downside and the personal benefits. A full transcript may be found at Storify.

Intellectual curiosity may be defined as wanting to know something just for the sake of knowing it. It was suggested that parents and educators can model intellectual curiosity, build relationships that foster it and ask tough questions that generate curiosity. Benefits of intellectual curiosity include becoming a life-long learner and enjoying a more holistic education.
