Learning

picture of a student standing with a paperThe core purpose of any education system is learning. More specifically, its focus should be on the experience of the student. Everything the student sees, hears, feels, reads, processes, wonders, and experiences in the course of learning form the foundation on which everything else must be built.

In school-based learning experiences, the teacher turns things over to the student at some point in the learning process to let them practice a new skill or concept. This is sometimes referred to as the student “task,” or what we ask the student to do, practice, and experience in the process of learning.

Student tasks take all kinds of forms, ranging from the relatively repetitive and simple (think worksheets) to the creative and authentic (think of students taking on a real and specific problem or project in their community).
