I call this “Learning 3.0”, what Alan November advocates. Giving students the space and tools to make their learning relevant to the world. REALLY relevant and actual. Make them active in the community, bring them alive to their potential. THIS is schooling, learning, education and whatever sticker you want to place on it. Real problems = real learning. Purpose. Learning for the world, not for teachers.
My blog has revolved and spun around this central concept. It is so important that we get off the assembly line and start really fishing….
Just an ordinary talk with an extraordinary meaning to those who really want to change things…. Students can add value to the world.
