21st Century Education!!!
Project Learning is 21st century learning at its best! Teachers do much of their work prior to the project. They compile what the students know to guide the students' learning. They inspire students' creativity and launch the students' discovery. The students determine the path of their discovery and their outcome. The teacher drives their discovery through questioning and facilitating. Students learn through real world situations and problems.
Real World Learning
The teacher's most time consuming work will be finding thought-provoking projects that connect students to content. He or she may want to go beyond the walls of the school. Search the web. Collaborate with colleagues around the school, the community, ... better yet, the world.
The teacher may consider just providing a question and let the students' discovery begin!
