Problem-based tasks can motivate learners like never before...especially when they truly understand the steps they take toward a solution are preparing them for their work in the future.

Preparing our Kids for Their Future
Why does this matters to educators? We are preparing our students for a future that might have them working with groups in different geographies, different time-zones and different cultures. Adaptability to new tools and new workflows are tools our learners can practice while they're with us, in their K-12 setting.
TechTarget describes a "gig-economy" as a free-market system where companies and organizations hire freelancers, part-time, project-based workers, independent contractors or temporary workers for short-term purposes. "Gig" simply comes from the music industry, a slang term meaning a job for a short period of time.
