Let’s Go Outside for Life-Centered Learning

Being student-centered is a fantastic practice for helping young people learn but what about being life-centered? You can excite learning and activate new thinking if you take the opportunity to bring innovation outside through activities such as a school garden. Guest Derek Rhodenizer explains how to bring an exciting experiential, life-centered approach to education and break free of ho-hum patterns of teaching and learning.
