Students as Creators: Inspiring intrinsic learning without being overwhelming
We all work to empower students to think and create. And yet, it can be daunting to develop a learning environment that invites students to think critically and creatively. Often, district leaders and educators may question if that type of learning will require unreasonable amounts of planning or jeopardize curriculum standards.
As we’ve worked with districts around the country, we’ve seen that engaging students as creators in the learning process can be easy-to-implement for teachers of all technical ability, and much more engaging for every student. Schools report that it produces longer-lasting learning for all students that actually transfers to other contexts, and students who are struggling especially benefit.
Join us to take a look at the science supporting this approach to learning, tips and tricks from districts who are encouraging this instruction in very approachable ways, and how we maintain rigorous student data privacy compliance even in a creative software product.
