McCurdy - The Creative Learning Exchange: Empowering students to educate students

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

Learning is about asking students, “Why do we need to know this? and “what will they do with knowledge?”. The design of learning in the classroom is shifting from delivery of content to real-world application of knowledge being taught in the classroom. We want students to use curiosity and imagination in combination with foundational knowledge building to then innovate and create with that knowledge.
The Creative Learning Exchange is a site designed to share their innovation and creativity. It allows students to share their understandings, teach other students and see what questions students are asking and to build upon each other’s understandings. Student learning should be powerful experiences used to improve the understandings of other students and to continuously push knowledge forward. The Creative Learning Exchange uses technology to provide students global access to student learning and provides an opportunity to leave legacies of their own learning to be used to further understanding.
