There are so many great tech tools out there today! Here’s an example of how one 5th grade teacher is using a simple project management tool (Trello) to teach his students how to organize problem-based approaches to student-driven learning.
What I love about this:
- Trello is free and genuinely easy to use
- Even today’s highly structured classrooms hounded by CC assessments can carve out an hour a week for student-centered and -directed learning, and it’s worth it to do that
- Students can and should learn how to develop their own “pretty hard and tough” questions to drive their own inquiry during the school week – it’s a vital skill.
- Being able to see what everyone else is working on benefits the entire class and drives students’ motivation
