Traditional methods of teaching aren’t preparing students for life beyond school. Lectures and direct instruction can be used to convey information to students, but they don’t enhance skills like teamwork, problem solving, and curiosity that employers are increasingly looking for.  Hear Jack share how organizing learning around meaningful goals and PBL can be an effective way to cultivate a “need to know” attitude in students. Concepts are better understood when students see a need for their use, because that need encourages them to apply what they’re learning to relevant situations.

Speaker: Jack Berckemeyer, nationally recognized presenter, author, and humorist
