Innovative Pedagogy creates students experiences leveraging best practices which encourages communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills.
The Office of Innovation in the Reynoldsburg City School District believes the essential focus of pedagogy, the study and practice of how best to teach, is on Ohio's Learning Standards. However, engagement in these standards through Innovative Pedagogy is the biggest difference in classrooms across our district. Wee work to use strategies that have proven impcat on students learning, while also developing some of our own original strategies and systems that work for the students we serve. Part of this endeavor is risk-taking while effectively assessing progress and having the agility to navigate the best course for students.
Practices such as, Design Thinking, Blended Learning, Embedded VR, MakerEd, and Transdisciplinary Problem Based Learning engage students in content standards in ways that deepen understanding and retention of knowledge personalized for each student.
We need a pedagogy free from fear and focused on the magic of children's innate quest for information and understanding. ~ Sugata Mitra
