I'm curious about the PBL elective you mentioned. Is there a particular content focus? Technology? Or just open-ended?
Glad to see you here in the PBL~Better with Practice group! Would love to hear more about your plans for developing projects at the local to international levels.Any pilot projects underway yet? This group is a good place to find collaborators.
Welcome to the group! It sounds like you have an excellent "problem." I'm guessing that you'll be able to use projects to deepen students' understanding of the math they've been learning in your flipped classroom. Good projects will give them a chance to apply concepts to real-world situations. Look forward to hearing how you proceed.
My name is George F Bartan, I live in Elyria (OH) , I am the proud father of a 13 years old boy and I love to get involved in his education.It`s nice to join a group of enthusiast teachers who share the same passion for Project Based Learning. Check my web site, www.aviation-for-kids.com to see some projects I have done with my son.
Presently I am working on a new project based on FLL robotics competition in which I want to connect teams of children from different countries to collaborate. So far I have got some promising feedback from East Europe (Romania) but I will welcome anybody interested to participate in such a project.
Hi, I'm Amy Sharpe. I teach 9th grade geography, and I am moving to a new campus that is implementing full time PBL this fall. I've done a few PBL units last year (3 during the course of the year) and I'm nervous about this coming school year. Looking forward to learning through this site.
Hello -- I am not a K-12 educator, but run programs at the IC2 ("IC-squared") Institute at UT Austin, and I am the Principal Investigator for a project called StemDev for partners in Medellín, Colombia. We just finished training eleven integrated secondary/university educator teams, developing live PBL projects for classrooms, using methods from the Buck Institute. The UT Austin College of Education, Texas Regional Collaboratives, is our partner. I am also a Ph.D. student in Learning Technologies at The University of North Texas, and I use inquiry methods in various classes I teach in other programs. I am interested in learning the experience of others in deploying PBL in K-12 classrooms.
Hello, new to the group I am trying to learn as much as I can about the application of PBL in different educational environments - from elementary to high school, from Waldrof education to high tech schools. I am hoping to find out more in the group.
