Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Possession of facts is not learning. What is an important skill is the ability to sift through abundant information, identify what is valid and meaningful, then use it to create meaning and express it. This is why student creation is so important in the new economy of information.

Ken's Key Takeaway: 
"Far beyond filling out answers on a worksheet, these assignments allow for individual talents and personality to shine through.

More often than not, that memorable assignment was one that allowed them to build and create."

More often than not, that memorable assignment was one that allowed them to build and create.''
