(ii) Son eruditos y pensadores, que se centran en el aprendizaje, tanto en el suyo como en el de sus estudiantes, lo que supone que esperan siempre "más" de los estudiantes. Edutopia. 10 Practical Ideas For Better Project-Based Learning In Your Classroom. By Jennifer Rita Nichols, TeachThought Intern Teachers are incorporating more and more projects into their curriculum, allowing for much greater levels of collaboration and responsibility for students at all levels. Project- based learning is a popular trend, and even teachers who don’t necessarily follow that approach still see the benefit to using projects to advance their students’ learning. Projects can be wonderful teaching tools. They can allow for a more student-centred environment, where teachers can guide students in their learning instead of using lectures to provide them with information.

The increase in classroom technology also makes projects more accessible to students. Despite general agreement about the benefits of using projects and project-based learning in general, it must be noted that all projects are not created equal!

Many educators have heard about, or maybe even witnessed, how project-based learning (PBL) can engage a broader range of learners and promote workplace skills. PBL is an instructional strategy in which students work cooperatively over time to create a product, presentation or performance. Two essential components are (1) an engaging and motivating question and (2) a product that meaningfully addresses that qu estion. Despite the buzz PBL has generated in academic journals and at teaching conferences, most modern classrooms still rely on teacher-led, paper-based learning.

The Steve Jobs Way: Seven lessons in business leadership. Having spent a couple of days of my holidays reading the Steve Jobs biography I couldn't help but reflect on the remarkable accomplishments of the man and the lessons applicable for business owners everywhere, big or small. This could have been a very long list, but here are the seven things that are most strongly front of mind for me (text is paraphrased and quoted from the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, (Simon & Schuster, 2011). 1) Focus: When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997 he walked back into a company with low morale, stagnant sales and little sense of purpose. He found a business with ‘tons of products most of them crap, done by deluded teams'. In trying to work out what they were all for Jobs resorted to asking a simple question 'Which one do I tell my friends to buy?

' Jobs further simplified the issue by classifying the customer as either Consumer or Pro and the product as either Desktop or Portable. You need to have a collaborative hiring process. Was he smart?
