How can we design learning experiences that capture 'right-now" and fully motivate our modern students?   Our experience with the pandemic has sharpened the focus on motivation and meaning in curriculum planning.   To truly make learning personalized should emerge directly from the student's life, in short, it is phenomena-based.  Whether a student's point of fascination is personal, stems from a local problem, or is a current global issue, motivation increases proportionally to relevance and real-world connections. In this forward looking keynote,  Dr. Jacobs will lay out a fresh and practical approach to designing  phenomena-based curriculum quests into your units of study, programs, lesson plans whether virtual or on-site to ignite your students.
