A Self-Organized Learning Experience.

Jaime Christensen
Would you love to win a drone for your classroom?
Join classrooms far and wide in a Self Organized Learning Experience (SOLE) to foster creative and critical thinking in students. Take a single hour to explore drones and their various uses. After, share what students discover.
Using #STEMSOLE, you can join a discussion with students and educators across the country who are exploring the same topic. Using the hashtag will enter you into a contest to win a classroom drone!*

Friday, November 2


In the SOLE method, teachers guide students as they discover lessons and concepts for themselves. In doing so, they prepare students to conduct their own research and encourage students to take ownership of their learning. If you have any questions, we are eager to help. Below, see an example of a SOLE Schedule, and click the link on the bottom of the page to learn more about how to conduct a SOLE.
