#63 – Gary Stager: “The Project Can Replace the Instruction”

For over 30 years, Gary Stager has been at the forefront of those arguing for a more constructionist approach to learning. In this podcast, he discusses the power and importance of letting students experience learning by doing in every interaction with school.

Gary has been greatly influenced by the work of Jean Piaget, Seymour Papert, and many others. His keynotes and presentations around the world continually push people’s thinking about the ways in which children and adults learn most powerfully and deeply.

Don’t forget to check out Gary’s Constructing Modern Knowledge Summer Institute which will be held July 16-19 in Manchester, NH. Now in its 12th year, CMK is a unique, deep-dive into learning unlike any other featuring amazing speakers and thought-provoking ideas for classroom practice.

    Thank you
