1. EMBRACE THE MESSINESS
LESSONS FROM A 21ST CENTURY CLASSROOM
Learning is messy. Yet, everything we're taught to do as teachers is focused on controlling the messiness of learning. We're taught to: * standardize learning * scaffold learning * measure and quantify learning * map learning * create pre-determined learning objectives that are based on a hierarchical taxonomy But learning is messy. 21st century pedagogy is about embracing the messiness, instead of trying to control it. Today I want to share a few of the lessons I learned while integrating Challenge-Based Learning into my FYC class.
