The 8-Bit Instructor: Throw Them into the Deep End (with some options) (EP012)

This week, I’m on Fall Break, so it’s a quick episode. We look at how giving students choice in class can allow us to challenge them more and help them learn better. Plus, a cool website is sitting in the treasure chest. And as always, your 8-Bit Crew question of the week.

Challenging Students through Choice

Think about ways that you can offer students a choice in order to help them engage with the skills that you want them to develop. What options can get them? Whether it’s content, product, or process, what kinds of things can they have freedom over? Then, find ways to push them into more rigorous and challenging activities.
