I recently wrote an article for ACEL e-Publications about the importance of authentic learning. In the article, I discuss authentic learning being overused in many blog posts, tweets, articles and staff meetings; however, it is often presented very vaguely with little to no specific examples of what it actually looks like in a classroom.
Therefore, in the article I go into detail about ten practical and achievable examples of how you can ensure your students are immersed in meaningful authentic learning experiences. The ten examples are listed below.
- Google Hangouts and Skype
- Twitter in Education
- Design Thinking
- Valuable Opportunities
- Start an ICT Club
- Student Voice
- Digital Technologies
- Physical Space
