Preparing for Session 25

Please read Reading #15 AND one of the three links I tweeted on the topic of engaging youth in agriculture (find them right next to this post or under #AEE400).  If you can find your own link about youth in agriculture, please feel free to share it with your classmates.

Preparing for Session 23

Please visit the Reading #14 folder in ANGEL.  Peruse at least two of the resources - there are videos, short articles and websites that address various aspects of innovation in education.  You might want to do some additional research to find examples of implementation, etc.

As you research these innovations, consider:
  1. Why is innovation in education needed?
  2. What characteristics make the idea/technology/etc innovative?
  3. Is the innovation widely diffused? 
  4. Which learning environments is the innovation best suited for?  Could the innovation be adapted to other learning environments?
  5. What are the barriers to innovation implementation?
