A well-developed knowledge constructor takes in a variety of resources, analyzes their credibility, and organizes them in a way to make connections that are not only meaningful to them, but also bring about more curiosity, questions, answers, and solutions about the world around us. How we foster this development in our classroom, however, with all the digital resources at our students’ fingertips, might look different depending on grade level and content area. Here are a few RSD Tech Leaders, sharing their take on ways to develop knowledge constructors in the classroom. Thank you Tech Leaders!
