Real World Learning

Real World Learning is a general term for any number of pedagogical approaches:
  • Active & Engaged Learning,
  • Project-based learning,
  • Problem-based learning,
  • Service learning,
  • Inquiry,
  • Real audience for work,
  • Community connections, etc.

These approaches all contextualize high-value, standards-based content within the real world and the students’ lives. The term "Real World Learning" is meant to recognize that all these approaches have certain components in common (but in different combinations), rather than to debate the differences (or advantages) of each.
