We commonly ask children “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Perhaps a more apt question is “What problem do you want to solve?”
Leveraging inquiry to drive learning and engage students will be at the heart of Frank McKay’s and De McKenzie’s workshop during the Deeper Learning conference, being held March 27-29 in San Diego, CA.
The workshop, “’What Problem Do You Want to Solve?’ Use Inquiry to Grow Lifelong Learners,” will address how educators can engage students through project-based learning, work-based learning, service learning, or other forms of Deeper Learning. Such methods of education can help students develop skills, knowledge, and dispositions to become lifelong learners and creative problem solvers.
Deeper learning is a concept focused on six competencies students need to succeed in school and in life. They consist of content mastery, collaboration, self-directed learning, critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication, and academic mindset. The Deeper Learning Conference is an annual gathering of educators to discuss ways to better engage students in these deeper learning core values.
