Well it makes sense at all. After every discussion in class a teacher  will have acquire his students an activity. If the student understands the discussion he can invent information or ideas or in others words he can answer the questions. The result of the activity by the way will reflect on the stdents average for learning ,Before an individual invests he has already, the higher score they get tells the higher value they learned. The children also experienced  Ausubel's theory "meaningful learning", meaning he acquires his pref-existing knowledge combined by the present learned knowledge.

Will you try any of these out in your classroom this year?
As you consider the following project possibilities, ask yourself: Would this project help my students meet important learning goals? Would my students find it engaging?

Turn an idea into a product over the course of a weekend? Challenge accepted!
The hackathon, a hands-on, solution-based development model with similarities to PBL, inquiry-based learning, STEAM, and design thinking, could become the ideal 21st-century learning opportunity.

Learning beyond the classroom.
When you offer students extra credit to take field trips without you, you give them agency to bring related classroom content alive in new ways.

"A deeper level of professional learning is needed for the schools of the future to emerge at a pace that kids and communities deserve."
With more focus on retaining information, reflecting, and redistributing new knowledge, teachers can foster the deeper level of professional learning that kids and communities deserve.

I like the idea of "Share a conversation. Retaining information is a personal endeavor, but at times it must include others to truly maximize the knowledge gained."  

I am more likely to talk about a conference I attended than I am to read notes.

"If we see our students as unique, resourceful, intelligent, imaginative, and able, we become more willing to promote student-centered learning by providing opportunities to use their gifts, talents, and abilities, and develop their voices that will allow them to flourish today and in the future." Well stated!

         Yes, I agree to your post. Success is usually an outspoken truth. We barely misunderstood, misinterpret and even taken for granted the heed of important consequences done in our lives.
    Whether it good or bad, rewards or problem we always try to compete ourselves for success. There's no problem that we cannot solve in fact the answers are at our hands.
It's time to open our eyes and seek for the truth. Let's prove them we can do everything if we just believe.

Company Overview
Edutopia is produced by The George Lucas Educational Foundation, a private operating foundation dedicated to improving the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating, and advocating for innovative, replicable, and evidence-based strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers, and adult lives. As one of the world's leading sources for change-makers in education, The George Lucas Educational Foundation spreads the word about ideal, interactive learning environments and enables others to adapt these successes locally. Edutopia.org contains a deep archive of continually updated best practices, from classroom tips to recommendations for district-wide change.  

Description
Our vision is of a new world of learning, a place where students and parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve are all empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills, especially in information literacy so they can:
  • find, assess, and use information effectively and creatively
  • work cooperatively and constructively with others 
  • use their strengths and talents to become empowered, productive citizens in our democratic society and the world at large.
It’s a place of inspiration and aspiration based on the urgent belief that improving education is the key to the survival of the human race. We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this new world of learning but the real-world information and community connections to make it a reality.

General Information
Edutopia’s audience includes educators, parents, school board members, university faculty, community-based organizations, and the business community -- all groups working to create better schools for the twenty-first century.
