Students today have instant access to information through technology and the web, manage their own acquisition of knowledge through informal learning, and have progressed beyond consumers of content to become producers and publishers. As a result, traditional teaching and learning methods are becoming less effective at engaging students and motivating them to achieve as learners in our classrooms.
In this session we will investigate and discuss Apple's Challenge Based Learning model where students actively engage in the process of taking on real-world, rigorous, and relevant challenges that are engaging and create opportunities for personalized learning.  Participants will also be provided examples of how the iLife & iWork suites as well as iBooks Author and iTunes U Course Manager can support and enrich the experience in the classroom environment to produce exemplary & purposeful artifacts of learning.
