Demystifying Nuance: A New Tool to Help Design For Learning Outcomes

  • Here are five ways that the sense of purpose entry helped The Forest School.
  • For example, in a section called Look Fors, the database suggests that people with purpose will: (a) articulate an interest and the why behind the interest; (b) demonstrate sustained passion and commitment to a certain goal; (c) engage in deep conceptual thinking and understanding; and (d) reflect on how their…
  • This theme affirmed our efforts to include learning experiences such as Dream Teams (a team of mentors that support student goal setting) and Purpose Match (a tool for reflecting on purpose) to help our learners build purpose seeking skills rather than a fixed purpose statement by the time they graduate….
  • These are questions we will need to keep in the forefront as we navigate our first years with The Forest School – – In a helpful pop-up section, it is explained that having purpose does not always improve traditional academic performance.
