Transforming Learning with an Authentic Audience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does learning and understanding change when students have an authentic audience to showcase what they know? How can you increase a deeper understanding of knowledge and change student motivation for learning? iPads give students access to the world and allow them to make connections to a REAL audience. With this audience (global, local, community, and family), a learner’s sense of purpose and understanding increases. From raising money for water wells in India, to creating iBooks to teach younger students about lab safety, making connections to others allows for stronger engagement and powerful feedback. See how you can erase the question “Why do I have to do this?” from students’ thoughts and learn how you can create an authentic learning platform for your students to make a real impact on each other, on their campus, and in their society.
