Deep learning often happens when learners encounter experiences that challenge them to figure something out, explore new information, and create a product.

Student centered, inquiry based, what a great way to learn! Too many students, especially high achieving students at the high school level have lost this spark, and have been trained to do exactly what the teacher wants, no more, no less, and get the grade. Any learning is a great happenstance. That’s why I love getting students (and adults for that matter), to think outside of the box, and do their best in the way that they are good at.
My way may work for me, but it may not work for them.
