Create to Learn: Digital Inquiry as Pedagogy
Keynote by Renee Hobbs
The rise of the Internet offers new ways of learning, including opportunities for independent, self-directed learning. Students love using digital tools to create and share media. When learners have choice and control, motivation is increased they invest effort in mastering knowledge and skills. But project-based learning, when combined with digital literacy, presents some challenges for teachers who must get comfortable with the "messy engagement" that happens as learners develop communication skills and gain self-confidence. Learn how teachers create, sustain and manage the learning environment that results when learners' intellectual curiosity is unleashed.
