The nine elements of authentic learning

A useful model of authentic learning

Dr. Jan Herrington's (Murdoch University, Australia) work involves research and teaching in the School of Education. She presents nine elements of authentic learning that can be used to design learning environments in different educational settings. (All 9 of the clips can be viewed from this link.)

While the content is focussed on post-secondary environments, it has some application for 6-12 learning.
