A Teacher’s Guide to Student-Driven Classrooms, Authentic Learning, Student Empowerment, and Keeping It All Together… Without Losing Your Mind
How do you organise what may seem like a chaotic mess into a classroom that empowers students to engage with content and pursue their passions?
A Meaningful Mess offers suggestions and specific tools that can be used to engage this generation of students in meaningful, relevant and student-driven learning experiences – even if things in the classroom may get messy, both literally and figuratively.
Such strategies and tools include Genius Hour, Makerspaces, flexible learning spaces, meaningful technology, global learning experiences, critical and creative thinking, collaboration and reflection. Packed with relevant evidence and research, A Meaningful Mess helps teachers understand why traditional teaching strategies are no longer working and what they can do to engage and empower this generation of learners.
