Walling, Donovan R.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v53 n3 p33-34 May 2009
Inventor Thomas Edison once famously declared, "Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration." If that's the case, then the students the author witnessed at the International Student Media Festival (ISMF) last November in Orlando, Florida, are geniuses and more. The students in the ISMF pre-conference workshop had much to inspire them. The day before they had visited NASA--the Kennedy Space Center. The tour was a high-energy learning experience that actively involved the participants. The tour is an example of a successful engaged learning experience. In this article, the author shares how teachers can inspire their students.
