Associate Professor, Division of Education, Mount Saint Mary College --
Thanks for creating the wonderful glog, Ludmilla! In college, relevance and interactivity is everything to engage learners. And students at all levels are demanding this -- otherwise they tune out. At high school, middle school, and elementary school, students are tuning out. As kids, though, they don't know what is relevant, so it is up to teachers to create projects that include those skills and strategies relevant to a student's future, yet also capture the student's interest and curiosity so students participate and learn what they don't think us relevant. It's a curious dilemma, don't you think?
