Community-Connected Experiential Learning (CCEL) builds on research that indicates that students are more engaged, more motivated to learn, and more successful when they can connect what they are learning to situations they care about in their community and in the world. Research has also found that experiential learning that takes place in the community contributes to the development of Global competencies by “giving opportunities for authentic learning, engaging students actively, fostering co-operation and collaboration, meeting individual interests, empowering learners and extending horizons beyond comfort zones”
Thank you and hope everyone has a safe summer.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the schools, students and teachers who participated in this year’s CETA robotic challenge. It was a great success and everybody was having a great time. I would also like to congratulate the following schools and students that had successfully built the Robot and send them in for the game day. Without the help of students at SATEC this competition will not be running so smoothly. Big hands of applause to all.
