Authentic Learning - Make it Real!
“Education has but one main purpose, to prepare students for the real world. To do that we need to ‘get real’ in education’. Steve Rivington
It's commonly known that the best way to learn is by doing. Authentic learning is an exciting movement in education that gives powerful, hands-on experiences in real-life contexts. The trend has grown out of global shift towards more organic, intuitive paths to knowledge. Learners are radically engaged by getting out of the classroom to solve real problems, and deal with real partners.
'This is real, I want to get it right'. The understanding that their work leads to real change gives ultimate motivation, and getting the job done gives untold empowerment.
