GeoGenius 2018 Project Work Competition

It is known that children have various learning styles. They build their knowledge on varying backgrounds and experiences. It is also recognized that children have a broader range of capabilities than they have been permitted to show in regular classrooms with the traditional text-based focus. The oldschool model of passively learning facts and reciting them out of context does not give sufficient exposure. Working on big project requires that students have both fundamental skills (reading, writing, and presenting) and New Generation skills (teamwork, problem solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesizing, utilizing high tech tools). With this combination of skills, students become directors and managers of their learning process, guided and mentored by a skilled teacher and hard working parent.
