How can you create an authentic learning environment—one where students ask questions, do research, and explore subjects that fascinate them—in today’s standards-driven atmosphere? Author Larissa Pahomov offers insightful answers based on her experience as a classroom teacher at the Science Leadership Academy—a public high school in Philadelphia that offers a rigorous college-prep curriculum and boasts a 99 percent graduation rate. Pahomov outlines a framework for learning structured around five core values: inquiry, research collaboration, presentation and reflection. For each value, she presents: * A detailed description of how the value can transform classroom practice and how a “digital connection” can enhance its application. * A step-by-step outline for how to implement the value, with examples from teachers in all subject areas. * Solutions to possible challenges and roadblocks that teachers may experience. * Suggestions for how to expand the value beyond the classroom to schoolwide practice.* Anecdotes from students, offering their perspectives on how they experienced the value in the classroom and after graduation. The framework is a guide, not a prescription, and middle and high school teachers—individually or as a team—can use it to structure whatever content and skills their current school or district requires. The book also includes suggestions for how to integrate technology into inquiry-based education, but the principles and approaches it describes can be applied successfully even in places without abundant technology. Both practical and inspiring, Authentic Learning in the Digital Age is an indispensable handbook for reinvigorating teaching and learning in a new era.

Although emerging technologies are becoming popularised for teaching, learning and research, the relationship between their use and transformative effects on higher education remain largely unexplored. This edited collection seeks to fill this gap by providing a nuanced view, locating higher education pedagogical practices at an intersection of emerging technologies, authentic learning and activity systems. Providing numerous case studies as examples, the book draws from a wide range of contexts to illustrate how such a convergence has the potential to track transformative teaching and learning practices in the higher education sector. Chapters provide the reader with a variety of transformative higher education pedagogical practices in southern contexts, theorised within the framework of Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) and tool mediation, while using authentic learning as a pedagogical model upon which this theoretical framework is based. The topics covered in the book have global relevance, with research paying particular attention to South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, where the authors are based. The book will be of interest to educators, researchers and practitioners in higher education, as well as those interested in emerging technologies in education more generally.

For over thirty years, Sue Haynes has taught highly creative children who resist standardized learning and who are often mislabeled ADD and/or learning disabled. Through supporting their creative expression, she has developed an alternative lens through which she sees their unique strengths. Through this lens Sue sees, not disabled learners, but talented, intuitive individuals who exhibit a passion for learning what intrigues them and a drive to express their learning in creative ways. These learners are compelled to be true to their inner agendas and thus resist curriculums that lack personal relevance. Sue has discovered that creatively gifted learners, and indeed all learners, need the freedom and support to learn through intuitive knowing and creative expression in order to maximize their potential. Sue’s book about her theories and experiences,Creative Mavericks: Beacons of Authentic Learning, consists of three sections: Section One includes “Who is the Creatively Gifted Learner,” which explores the attributes of highly creative learners, and “Seeing Through a Different Lens: Facilitating the Creatively Gifted Learner” which describes her teaching; Section Two, “Heartsongs: The Struggles and Triumphs of Creatively Gifted Learners,” includes the stories of twelve individuals who share reflections on their schooling and the fruition of their creative empowerment; Section Three, “Implications of Education for Creatively Gifted Learners: Awakening Passion and Authenticity in All Learners,” further explores the conditions which foster learning empowerment through the reflections of nine innovative classroom teachers. These teachers reveal that the passion and creative expression so evident in highly creative learners are seeded within all learners and can be awakened by teaching which honors the uniqueness of each individual. Sue’s hope is that Creative Mavericks may inspire an exploration of teaching and learning that moves beyond the confines of standardized education and empowers our true potential.

Why should we use technology to support learning? Where does the responsibility lie to prepare young people to be active and successful cybercitizens? Can we go on confiscating pupils’ smartphones indefinitely? Authentic Learning for the Digital Generation is a vital examination of young people’s use of personal devices, online creative communities and digital gaming. It calls into question the idea of the ‘digital native’ and shows clearly that the majority of young users need help and support in order to benefit from the rich learning potential of personal, mobile and online technology use. Written by a leading authority on the role of digital technologies in education, it looks in detail at the practice and implications of learning using personal devices, collaborative online spaces, learning platforms, user generated content and digital games. In particular, approaches to solving problems, building knowledge, manipulating data and creating texts are examined. It offers clear strategies, a vision for what effects on learning we might reasonably expect when children are given access to different types of technology, and explores the challenges of managing these practices in the classroom. Authentic Learning for the Digital Generation offers careful analysis at a time when there is much discussion about young people emerging from school unprepared for the world of work and often struggling to manage their personal relationships as they are exposed to strong content and harsh criticism online. It considers what we know of childhood experience in a digital world and offers ways in which schools and teachers can embrace the opportunity presented by ubiquitous ownership of connected, digital devices to enrich and deepen learning.

"This book offers teaching strategies that allow educators to provide students with authentic learning experiences that they can apply to their lives in school--and beyond. Beginning with a justification for authentic learning and how it teaches 21st-century skills, each subsequent chapter discusses a specific strategy and how it allows for authenticity. Strategies include project-based learning, problem-based learning, inquiry learning, and simulations. The book also includes a section on how to create lessons across the curriculum, so that students learn how all of the subject areas fit together, rather than just looking at the separate puzzle pieces. The book concludes with specific tactics that can be used inside and outside the classroom to bring the real world to students" --

ABSTRACT: Effective teaching is a balancing act of many preparative tasks and attempts to engage and assess students. Bain (2004) researched qualities and practices of best college teachers and reported that best teachers create a natural critical learning environment where the thinking skills and desired end goals are embedded into authentic learning tasks. This teaching-learning approach facilitates development of critical thinking skills concurrently while learning the critical skills for their discipline. Through implementation of interprofessional learning opportunities and assessment, our objective is to establish authentic experiential learning for producing desired student outcomes of increased role definition and increased interprofessional readiness.
