Challenge Based Learning

CBL is an engaging multidisciplinary approach to teaching and learning that encourages learners to leverage the technology they use in their daily lives to solve real-world problems. Challenge Based Learning is collaborative and hands-on, asking students to work with peers, teachers, and experts in their communities and around the world to ask good questions, develop deep subject area knowledge, identify and solve challenges, take action, and share their experience.

21st century skills as life long learning skills! Literacy isn't anymore just being able to read, write and, count. Deeper learning and higher order thinking skills are what needs to paid attention to. Proper information literacy skills are vital! 

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, January 24, 2013 5:47 PM

Being literate in today's society requires a different set of skills - a combination that builds on traditional literacy skills.

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

"Literacy-rich environments, as endorsed by the International Reading Association, have a significant impact on what goes on in the classroom and set the stage for interactions with a wide variety of genres...

 Perhaps we should begin by focusing attention on the classroom environment and making certain that it is a place that supports and encourages literacy learning. A literacy-rich environment not only supports the standards set by the Common Core, but also provides a setting that encourages and supports speaking, listening, reading, and writing in a variety of authentic ways – through print & digital media."

This is a guest post by Rachael Costello, high school librarian. Her library orientation lesson for freshman is packed with options, engagement, and interactivity. Glogster provides the platform for delivery, but Rachael fills it with her ideas and productions. I wish all students had such a thorough introduction to their school library, thinking especially about the schools closing and cutting librarians!
