This is an excellent way to provide simple, short, and just in time reinforcement teaching of challenging topics. I checked out the statistics explanation for variables and found it perfect for my research course.

Measurement and Assessment in Making: Considerations, Constructs, and Cautions | InformalScience.org | Learning in the future | Scoop.it
Just prior to this year’s National Week of Making (6/17- 6/23), a group of researchers and practitioners who are interested in the study of making as learning met at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on May 23 & 24 2016. The convening was funded by the American Educational Research Association (AERA), with the understanding that the meeting would explore various aspects of making and learning, and ultimately produce an edited research volume that would describe the state of the art in making and its potential future directions. The work of the meeting, which included representatives from museums, science centers, universities, libraries and other makerspaces built directly on discussions from a 2015 Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded convening designed to identify areas of traction in research and learning in making and tinkering settings and activities.

Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try - TeachThought

Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try - TeachThought | Learning in the future | Scoop.it
What are the latest emerging trends in education?

As trends to do, these are changing almost yearly. Consider how quiet iPads in the classroom have been recently, whereas three years ago they were going to replace teachers and were (unsarcastically) compared to magic. While mobile devices like the iPad can indeed parallel a kind of magic in the learning process, it obviously has to ‘fit’ into a progressive supporting ecology of assessment, curriculum, and instruction.

With that in mind, we’ve created a list of 15 (the graphic plus 3 bonus items below) new ideas every teacher should try. Not all will fit or work–again, it depends on the ecology of the classroom, school, and so on. But each of these ideas below–some learning models, some concepts, and some technologies–can be transformational for students, and your teaching.

This is a fantastic summary of ways to transform learning - in fact the PBL and Skype examples in combination with the current hot topic in the news about the value and virtues of allrefugees (Karl Stefanovic on WIN Today show)  makes me think I could devise an English  Unit on refugees where students interact through  these digital pedagogical tools  with actual refugees now in Australia to find out their stories and to hear about racial prejudice towards 'boat people', and then write a letter to the editor type assessment dispelling the negativities towards refugees via an online newspaper or blog situation. These could be shared with actual refugees to show them they have the support of Australian citizens....
