Episode 13 - Learning Expeditions and Meeting Students Needs with Chris Jacobs

Today’s episode is the final part of my interview with Chris Jacobs. In it we consider the future of the iLab and how learning expeditions can form the foundation for future instruction. We speculate on the differences in approach when faced with issues of remote learning, social distancing, and other challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We finish with some advice for teachers about what they can do to begin to innovate and meet the needs of today’s learners.

You can see how they are adapting and what is happening in the iLab by following them on Twitter @GRHSiLab.   If you want to learn more about Chris’ work, you can follow him on Twitter @ChrisJacobsGRHS
