Are liberal arts more valuable than STEM learning?

Are liberal arts more valuable than STEM learning? | The DigiTeacher | Scoop.it
A liberal arts education that focuses on a broad range of topics, and is not vocationally-centric, is a bigger asset to today’s students than other trending tracks like STEM learning. That’s according to author Fareed Zakaria in his new book “In Defense of a Liberal Education.” Zakaria argues that the central focus of a liberal arts education is writing, and that “writing makes you think.” In an interview with Forbes, Zakaria had this to say about his stance: What a liberal education at its best does…is to allow people to range widely, to read widely, to explore their passions…I think …

8 Basic Steps Of Project-Based Learning To Get You Started - TeachThought PD

8 Basic Steps Of Project-Based Learning To Get You Started - TeachThought PD | The DigiTeacher | Scoop.it
The process of designing and implementing project-based learning can be fairly complex. A big part of that complexity is the shift toward inquiry that uncovers learning as you use PBL to flip Bloom’s Taxonomy. With that said, it’s often helpful to break this process down into basic steps to help teachers and schools get started with the caveat that PBL planning and implementation is not a simple, linear process. Readers should keep in mind that some of these “steps” can occur simultaneously as the reality of the messiness of learning and planning for deeper learning kicks in.
