Project-Based Learning: Real-World Issues Motivate Students

Project-Based Learning: Real-World Issues Motivate Students | Library Inquiry | 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.

Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet? I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you know what you’re going to get.

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools?

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools? | Library Inquiry | Scoop.it

When the majority of information moves from print to digital form, we need a new set of critical skills in order to find what we need and use if properly. Many students get to college without having learned much in the way of information literacy, although professors often expect it was already taught. How should schools teach kids about finding good materials for research? About plagiarism? About finding authoritative sources online?

Indeed, a teacher-librarian I interviewed recently called it 'an approach to life' (Lupton manuscript). Thus, inquiry learning as a pedagogy and curriculum design involves:

1) questioning frameworks

2) information literacy / information seeking processes

3) an action research cycle
