Hi, Shane - I do believe you were at MNCS this week to share Project Foundry info at the EdVisions Summer Institute...am I right? I was invited to participate in the Institute because I'll be student teaching with Nichole Kotasek. For my other MNCS connections, see my profile.
I just discovered CR2.0 today and was looking for other folks who were involved in PBL and (finally) came across your discussion. The site's search feature didn't turn up anything helpful but I am slowly stumbling across other PBL and charter school folks on these pages. Any thoughts on connecting with more of them? I don't think that there's a charter school or PBL group, for example...
Anyhooo... thanx for the demo at MNCS. I observed the kids using PF there last year but this was my first opportunity to try it out. Pretty cool!
I'd like to connect with folks doing or interested in doing standards-based project-based learning in middle and high schools. Also, interested in talking with folks doing senior projects as part of high school graduation.
