Student-Driven, Real-World Learning in Broadcast Journalism

By David Cutler posted 07-07-2018 04:10 PM

Dear Colleagues, 

I'm honored to share my recent story for KQED Education: 

The longer I teach online journalism, the more I understand about how students learn best. They crave ownership of the learning process, and that ownership can help promote mastery of essential skills and content knowledge. Owning their learning is also significantly more meaningful than having me—or any other teacher for that matter—tell students exactly what’s expected of them.

I prefer that students experiment with the learning, setting and holding themselves to their own high standards, while always striving to improve.
