This past week for #PBLChat our topic was HW and project based learning.  We have always been fortunate in this chat that we always have students jump in and chat with us.  As usual they shared some very insightful thoughts during the chat.  Here are a few of them:

Of course not all of their thoughts around homework were negative!  Many students jumped in with advice on how to make homework more meaningful and valuable to them. 

What do YOUR students think about homework? Have you asked them?
