Using technology to support project-based learning

How can we reduce plastic in our oceans? In today’s classrooms, teachers use project-based learning (or PBL) so that students can come up with potential solutions to real-world problems like this. With PBL, students identify the problem, research a solution and support it with evidence—all while learning valuable skills they’ll use long after graduation. Brainstorming these dynamic solutions can be an exciting and creative challenge for young minds. Technology can help motivate and spark imagina...

Five new grants to support CS education research

Excitement about computer science (CS) education is growing across the country—from educators and students to corporations, governments and nonprofit organizations alike. But as we work together to make CS education more available in the U.S., there’s a need for more scientific education research to determine the best way to teach CS—a fairly new discipline.After consulting with many CS education experts, we realized that while some research existed, more was needed.To better understand current ...

Project Based Learning can provide a deep and meaningful learning experience for students. It allows the students to really drive their own learning, which allows that learning to stick - students will better retain the content because they are not simply passively taking in information.

Harnessing the power of technology in medical education

Virtual Reality. Augmented Reality. Gamified Learning. Blended Learning. Mobile Learning. The list of technologies that promise to revolutionise medical education (or education in general) could go on, creating an exciting yet daunting task for the course leaders and educators who have to evaluate them. The visceral appeal of technology is understandable: technology is cool, and it’s increasingly a part of student’s lives and therefore something that they expect to be integrated into their curri...

The Future of Learning: Project-based*, Place-based, Experiential, Authentic, Constructivism

No matter what it's called, it's here and it will change the way teachers teach and students learn. Some year ago, a little non-profit called "Roadtrip Nation" partnered with high schools across the country to ask them who they might like to interview, on film which the students were taught how to use, to help them better understand their own curiosity about the "real world" and learn what was possible. As the three founders, all recent grads of the same college, put it: "We've talked to everyo...

Redefining Career Readiness for an Uncertain Future

By Guest Author: Katherine Prince The world of work is changing rapidly. Those changes will have big implications for how we approach learning and what our education system aims to achieve. We increasingly organize work according to projects. The platform or gig economy means that more people are stitching together mosiac careers instead of working full-time for a single organization. Interest in entrepreneurship is rising, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation reporting that one-half to ...

Introducing the 'Selfie Generation' to the Real World

By Guest Author: Sébastien Turbot I often meet people who are appalled to see today's "selfie-generation" drag itself through education - as if it doesn't care or see the importance of education. "What is education for?" my eight-year-old asked me one day. "Your education will offer you a good job, it will prepare you for the world," I replied. But as soon as I finished my sentence, I realized that my pragmatic response was no longer valid. Education is for life. Indeed. Except it no longer pr...

How to choose a medical school

Feeling confused? You’re not alone… Applying to medical school is like asking someone to marry you. This might seem like an exaggeration, however over your lifetime you will spend more hours working than you will spend awake with your life partner. Like marriage, being a doctor will change who you are, influence where you live, and affect what you can do. For the right person this can be a wonderful, life-affirming experience. Otherwise, divorce from a medical career can be messy, painful and up...
