Publisher: Dave Burgess Consulting, Incorporated
Author: Denis Sheeran
Students don't need teachers for information. Virtual courseware, online tutors, and comprehensive textbooks make individualized, self-paced learning easier than ever. Students have free access to information 24/7. So what can teachers offer students that massive open online courses (MOOCS) and online tutorials can't? Relevance! Students need teachers to help them make sense of information. Every day, students in schools around the world ask the question, "When am I ever going to use this in real life?" In Instant Relevance, author and keynote speaker Denis Sheeran equips you to create engaging lessons from experiences and events that matter to your students, not just in preparation for real-world application. Your students will begin to see meaningful connections between the real world and what they learn in the classroom - because that's when learning sticks. Here are just a few things you will learn from Denis Sheeran in Instant Relevance: Why sharing personal experiences can make lasting content connections for students How asking questions can lead to relevant learning experiences Where detours from routine can take your class How to find unique learning opportunities in everyday circumstances.
