01. Engaging Students in the Twenty-First Century Classroom:The Importance of Using Community Research Projects as a Strategy

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Community service-learning courses provide students with a deeper understanding of the interdependence of people, social institutions and communities. As many students enter our classrooms armed with tremendous technological skills and the desire to help create a better world, the members of this panel are searching for strategies that can be used to channel student energy into community research projects that connect theory, methods and the life outside our campus walls.
We will discuss courses that lead students to develop a sense of relatedness to community members not as objects but as humans with intersecting life stories not dissimilar from their own. A central theme to be examined is how to channel the disconnected aspects of student engagement with technology into community projects that lead to uncovering relationships with others as valued human beings constructing viable communities. It is expected that participants in this discussion will arrive at creative and innovative methods for constructing theory-practice courses that acknowledge and honor the value of relationships in community.
