Project-Based Learning: Real-World Issues Motivate Students | A Common Core Champion: your School Teacher Librarian | Scoop.it

In a growing number of schools, educators are echoing Papert's assertion that engaging students by starting with the concrete and solving hands-on, real-world problems is a great motivator.

 

Students conduct research using a variety of sources, from the Internet to interviews with experts. They work on the project over an extended period of time -- six weeks or more -- because of the in-depth nature of the investigation.

50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students

50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students | A Common Core Champion: your School Teacher Librarian | Scoop.it
