If you're getting pushback from your active learning strategies, read this!

I know we all feel some frustration from students experiencing a new approach to learning, especially at this time of year.  This is impetus to stick with your active learning approach! Check out this great Science News article from Harvard University :  More learning in 'active learning' classrooms, but students don't know it "Deep learning is hard work. The effort involved in active learning can be misinterpreted as a sign of poor learning," said  Louis Deslauriers, Director of Science Teaching and Learning . "On the other hand, a superstar lecturer can explain things in such a way as to make students feel like they are learning more than they actually are."

It’s 2019. So why do 21st-century skills still matter?

We hear more and more about how important 21st-century skills are for all learners as they prepare for future careers.  At Scoutlier , we're especially interested in helping provide tools and support teachers in gathering  evidence of learning and improving student outcomes as they practice the 21st-century learning skills, or 4C's in a repetitive and consistent way.  From  Empowering Students with 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart :  ". . .
