This forum was conceived and created by future teachers in training at The University of South Alabama, Spring 2010, inspired by Dr. John Strange. Dr. Strange teaches EDM310, Technology in Education.
This is super!!! I've always felt that we can teach like this and be effective versus segregating each topic by different periods of the day. This is just flat out more fun for student and teacher. I wonder if anyone can point to research that quantifies the retention level of material presneted with a real life, hands on approach versus routine, process like approaches. If that data were out there, maybe the emphasis to teach to the test would finally be put down. Thanks for sharing this!
