Design Learning

How much time do you spend designing learning with and for students?

Do you work with colleagues to revise or create units of study that are relevant, meaningful, and reflective of modern day ways of collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, and presenting information, ideas, and creativity?

It seems like too much time is spent using plans and projects that have been used for a long time without revision or that are given to us. Often these materials don't reflect the students we teach or the context we teach in.

As you consider your efforts to design learning with and for students, I offer my design learning presentation as one guide that you and your colleagues may use to lead this important work with regard to teaching children well.
