In researching the top skills students need to succeed in the future, author Rachelle Dene Poth identified the following: ability to communicate, work in teams, think creatively, problem-solve and design. This book shows educators how to help students develop these essential skills through authentic, real-world learning experiences, building a pathway for the future of learning and work. In this book, educators will get the tools they need to design more purposeful learning experiences to drive student engagement and motivation, promote creativity in learning, model risk-taking and build classroom culture. Readers will discover how these activities can be woven into instruction rather than layered on existing curriculum, with ideas for getting started, suggestions in response to the statement, "If you're doing this, try this instead," and lessons learned along the way. The book is filled with ideas for empowering students to build confidence in sharing their learning, become more responsible digital citizens and evolve into classroom creators.
