Improving College and Career Readiness through Challenge-Based Learning
Shuptrine, Carl
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v6 n2 p181-188 2013
High school students in an Advanced Video class addressed the challenge of increasing community awareness. Students followed a challenge-based learning model developing guiding questions and activities to determine solutions for implementation. Literature supported the use of project-based learning that fostered partnerships outside of the classroom to develop 21st century skills. Students utilized multiple technologies to collaborate, plan, and produce advertising in a variety of mediums. During Phase 2, each team created videos documenting their entire process. Videos were presented to a group of random students and faculty members for critical review. Data were collected through pre and post surveys, observations, and student interviews. Data showed students found the process difficult but beneficial to developing 21st century skills.
