The Power of Social Media

I'm in the middle of a project and was trying to give an example of why project-based learning is so valuable. I remembered hearing a while back an analogy comparing step-by-step "project" lessons to recipes and are not true projects. The basic concept is that if every single student is turning in the exact same assignment then it's not a project it's a recipe. The whole goal of project-based learning is to allow students to explore different possible outcomes.

I knew I had seen a meme but could not for the life of me find the graphic. All my search results were leading me to lessons about actual cooking not a concept comparing lessons to cooking. This is why I turned to social media for help.

I posted on both LinkedIn and Twitter asking if anyone else remembered hearing about this concept. Within an hour I not only got an answer on Twitter, I also got a link to an article from 2017 about the concept.
