Real World Learning Resources


Real World Learning is a general term for any number of pedagogical approaches (e.g.: active learning, project-based learning, problem-based learning, service learning, inquiry, real audience for work, community connections, etc.) that contextualize high-value, standards-based content within the real world and the students’ lives.

It's meant to recognize that all these approaches have certain components in common (but in different combinations), rather than to debate the differences (or advantages) of each.
