Effectively Integrating Project Based Learning From the Ground Up

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many teachers assign projects, but are they really doing project based learning? This session will focus on the shift from traditional project based tasks to authentic project based learning in the middle/high school classroom. An emphasis on creating clear meaningful learning targets and checkpoints throughout the learning process will be an integral focus in the shift. Through PBL, we will explore how to empower learners to be creative communicators by increasing student voice and choice, leveraging authentic products, encouraging reflective practices, and fostering student growth and engagement. Participants will see several classroom-ready examples of students’ PBL projects, and have access to PBL resources (planning guide, graphic organizer and rubric) to transform their own students into knowledge constructors through PBL.
