The Project-Based Learning Immersion

external image project-based-learning-immersion.jpgA passionate student is a learning student. As the world is becoming increasingly connected, the nature, use, ownership, and purpose of knowledge are changing in profound ways. Our goal as educators is to leverage these connections and changes as powerful means to improve teaching and learning in our schools. The Project-Based Learning Immersion, a 3-course series, will move educators from introductory to advanced levels of project-based learning for enhanced student engagement and achievement. During the courses educators will use a variety of media and new tools that help them learn with others, support PBL management, and so students can work in authentic ways and beyond the classroom walls.
