Get feedback on your draft challenge idea!
Clear: Can you articulate your challenge as a one-sentance problem statement that is understandable to practicing teachers? For example: "How do you support the development of scientific inquiry skills in the physical sciences?"
Product-Driven: Can you begin to articulate criteria for what participants will need to show in the culminating video or screencast?
Adequately Focused: Is your challenge specific enough to create meaningful focus amongst of a community of practice? For example: "How do you teach inquiry skills?" is likely to be too broad for anyone to know what to do with.
Designed for Multiple Outcomes: Does your challenge avoid being prescriptive to the point of resulting in singular outcomes. For example: "How do you teach Newton's 2nd Law using a bowling ball and a baseball bat?" is probably too limited in terms of subject area, and would be unlikely to result in an interesting or useful array of user-generated solutions.
Relevant: Does your challenge tap a core struggle that your community of educators is struggling with?
