What Innovation Looks Like in an Elementary School - A.J. Juliani - 0 views

  •  
    "So, what did I do with this new scary K-5 area? I reached out online. I found teachers who were sharing what they were doing in their classes through blogs and social media and podcasts.

PBL and STEAM Education: A Natural Fit | Edutopia - 0 views

They are not exactly the same, but teachers can easily connect to them to teach not only STEAM content and design challenges, but also authentic learning and public, high-quality work. In fact, many know that STEAM education isn't just the content, but the process of being scientists, mathematicians, engineers, artists and technological entrepreneurs. Here are some ways that PBL and STEAM can complement each other as you deliver instruction"

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning | MindShift - 1 views

  •  
    "Perhaps the most important effect of the new economy of information is the need to make sense of information that is around us. "In order to do this, students need to literally create their learning and demonstrate not just what they know, but what they can do."
