Summary

#weinspire

Teaching the “4Cs of 21st Century Skills” in dynamic ways can be a challenge, as more weight is increasingly placed on test scores. Critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication are all inherently part of PBL, and innovation challenges can provide teachers with a framework for guiding students to learn by doing, and give students the freedom to innovate within the curriculum.Panelists from three innovation competitions will share how they create free lesson plans and resources to enhance experiential learning. Alexis Lewis, a teenage patent owner who has won numerous invention/innovation competitions and spoken at The White House, will give some insight into her experiences.
