21st Century Learning
Some shared results from ‘googling’ 21st Century Learning
Students say they are motivated by solving real-world problems. They often express a preference for doing rather than listening. At the same time, most educators consider learning-by-doing the most effective way to learn. Yet for decades, authentic learning has been difficult to implement. Certain experiments are too dangerous, difficult, or expensive to conduct in the classroom; many are simply impossible to perform. After all, educators cannot expect their students to set the tectonic plates in motion, summoning up an earthquake at will, or to travel back in time and replay decisive moments in the American Civil War, can they? Well, perhaps they can.
