Insightful Tips on How to Integrate Problem Based Learning in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Insightful Tips on How to Integrate Problem Based Learning in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Makerspace and library | Scoop.it

Project based learning and problem based learning are two didactic approaches to learning that are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: engaging students in authentic learning activities. This truism does not always hold true. In a learning task that is problem based, the focus is on finding solutions to the problem posed through applying learned strategies and in so doing the process of arriving at the solution is, in and of itself, an integral part of the overall learning taking place .

MN: Libraries become tech hubs for the digitally inclined | StarTribune.com | Makerspace and library | Scoop.it

Ridwa Yakob knew what libraries had: books.Then she saw the Teen Tech Center at the Minneapolis Central Library. This digital playground, which opened in 2013, has rows of new computers, iPads, the latest video equipment and even its own soundproof recording studio.“Growing up, I used to be super into reading. That’s what I thought libraries were for,” said Yakob, 18, of Minneapolis. Now she’s a member of the Teen Tech Squad at the library, helping her peers with all sorts of high-tech resources, learning as she goes. “It gives me access to tools I don’t have at home.”Shhhhhhh. You may not know it, but libraries have quietly become community tech hubs where the digital tools go far beyond computer terminals with free Internet.Across the metro area, their offerings are expanding as libraries help patrons tinker with 3-D printers, e-readers and social media. A growing catalog of e-books and e-magazines, combined with other online tools, extend resources far beyond the library walls.Click headline to read more--
