Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 10, 2013 10:39 PM

As we move to the Common Core and we look at the Depth of Knowledge that will be required for our students it is clear that the need for our students to create is critical. This post starts with the following sentence:

"When was the last time your students said “Wow, that worksheet changed my life”?  Can you even remember a similar cookie cutter classroom activity or assignment from your days as a student? Yet they were a popular tool because they were structured and efficient in getting the class to a set finish point."

After presenting "the exploding volcano project" the post turns to four strategies. The short hand version is below. Click through to the post for additional information.

1. Start with your specific learning objective.

2. The idea to be expressed comes before the tool used to express it.

3. Make asking "How will this show mastery of the learning objective?" your classroom mantra.

4. Engage in evaluating the PROCESS of creation and not just grading the finished project.

There is also an example a learning objective and a project that one student submitted.

What do you think? Do you believe the results are obvious? If so, you may be surprised. Learn about the "digital natives" in the following areas:

* Who they are

* The top ten countries by percentage

* The young and connected

* Future trends

This infographic could be used to begin a discussion with students by asking what they think? What is the age range for a digital native? Which countries have the most digital natives? What does it mean to be young and connected? What do they think the future holds?

Jack Uldrich – a futurist who has ties to national security, education, and economics. He pointed out, as explained in one of his 11 books, “Jump the Curve”, that the education sector is focusing far too much about what existed yesterday, some about what exists today, and very little about what will exist tomorrow.
