Problem-Based Authentic Learning: Real, Meaningful Instruction Connected to Standards

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Creating novel solutions to real-world problems intrinsically motivates students to realize deep, lasting learning. With today’s technological tools, it is easier than ever for students to be empowered to solve problems by creating real products for real audiences, both locally and globally. During this session, we will discuss how to use current standards to create problem-based units and demonstrate how problem-based, authentic learning can be used with any standards/content to provide an environment in which students are naturally motivated and in which teachers can differentiate in a sophisticated manner.
