Topic Summary: Learning Adventures
In order to model a more constructivist educational setting, Gary Stager coined the term ‘learning adventures’ to replace ‘assignment’ in describing classroom activity. He argues that this simple rhetorical shift has a profound impact on teachers spirit and effectiveness in teaching. In this session, Adrian Camm from McGuire College will focus on the particpation in learning adventures that are deep, rich, have inherent cross-curricular opportunities and can be used in your own classroom.
