It is critical for learners to develop skills and competencies in authentic contexts where they solve problems that matter to them. Project-based learning, maker learning, and community- based learning all provide authentic learning opportunities, but can be hard to implement with fidelity without the proper support and enabling conditions in place.
This tool is designed to support teams to develop plans for advancing learners through an Authentic Learning continuum, from connection (transactional engagements with the community) to empowerment (authenticity is embedded in learning). It includes:
- an authentic learning matrix to help identify where you are currently,
- prompts to spark strategic conversations about how to deepen authentic learning and empower learners
- strategies for consideration
