How to Make Sure That Project-based Learning is Applied Well in Schools | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it
It's not uncommon to see popular education strategies become muddied by people who don't understand them well.
Nancy Jones's insight:

having recently seen "Most Likely to Succeed" , I am curious to read about the pros and cons of how folks are using PBL. Great considerations to the power of the challenge and the driv8ing question to even further engage students fully with real world problems.

Learning technologies change student-teacher interactions in several ways, but there's one specifically that really stands out and makes the most difference in our classrooms.

Nancy Jones's insight:

whenAccepting when teachers acknowledge themselves as co- learner s who guide students. The learning together really occurs.  Great quotable content in this brief but succinct commentary.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:48 PM

Information is ubiquitous. Knowledge is not nor is it free. We each have to figure out how to turn information into knowledge and then figure out what to do with it. This takes work. I think student-teacher interaction needs to change. It has not in many cases.

 

The John Dewey quote is important.

It changes if the teacher sees himself as a learner. 

 

Dean Mantz's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:50 PM

In reviewing my Scoop It recommendations I came across a curation established by Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) .  His Scoop It site is  iGeneration - 21st Century Education.  As many of you know, I am honored to be working with pre-service students at Sterling College (KS) as an Adjunct Professor.  My course is entitled "Technology in the Classroom".  As one of my major points on using technology is that the students must be considering "How" the technology will be used to provides avenues not available in other manners as well as corporating HOTS and critical thinking skills.  Through that approach articles like this one are great reads and discussion points for all parties to discuss effective use of technology.
