10 Practical Ideas For Better Project-Based Learning In Your Classroom

CERT‘s insight:

Try to experiment with different teaching methods, try exploring the depths of your learners acquired skills and competencies! Do not be afraid of losing control, nor that you will not be giving enough to your students. A person learns so much more by doing than just by sitting and listening!

CERT‘s insight:

Digital Storytelling is a very interesting aspect that can easily integrate with creative writing as well as other curricular-based topics, especially for the younger learners. Use of technology is not just limited to tools but it’s how you use your teaching time to maximise the learning time of learners, in class and beyond.

Are you feeling rather lost on the subject of use of digital tools and technologies for teaching and learning?

Well, we recommend this site from the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies that contains a whole list of tools that can be used with student learners between ages 5-18. — This is a top recommendation to all those who wish to start implementing more digital practices in the classroom!

This link directs you to a wonderful site containing a number of podcasts that introduce the subject of teaching with technology.

On the subject of podcasts, you might also wish to start creating your own podcasts or have your students upload their podcasts about specific topics or subjects. I found this ‘Teacher’s Guide on the Use of Podcasting in Education‘ really comprehensive, and contains all the links to free downloadable software and services that you can make use of to help you start out! — Recommended!
