This series of five modules are designed to help educators create a PBL environment for their students.
Utilizing Technology to Create Problem Based Instruction
This session helps an educator create a classroom that fosters Problem Based Learning. Educators learn the various levels of problem solving tied to curriculum components and how to link 21st century literacy skills to the relevant technology applications within a problem based learning environment.
Building Collaborative Community around Authentic Issues
Educators will learn how to involve the students in a community based problem and gain successful support of community members within the classroom. Current technology tools will be shared and applied to the process.
Developing Inquiry Skills and Research Savvy Students with Technology
21st century learning skills include the application and development of students with critical thinking skills. Learn how to develop students who inquire and research utilizing today's technologically advanced opportunities throughout these four modules of study.
Assessment: Assessing Student Work in a Collaborative Classroom
This session will help educators prepare students for the presentation of their work and for assessing their process along the way.
Presenting and Sharing Results
Educators participating in these modules will learn a variety of venues, technology presentations, and formats for allowing students to share their work with real audiences and to benefit from the results in a positive interaction with their peers, educators, and community.
Real Audiences for Real Student Work
Students work harder and learn more when they are asked to do authentic work for real audiences. IVC is a great vehicle to provide opportunities for students to work with cultural organizations, community groups, and higher education partners. Interactive videoconferencing (IVC) also provides real audiences, allowing students to present lessons to younger students or findings to experts in the field. Students can work with other students in an endless variety of projects. Most important, students become more engaged, are less likely to miss school, and learn more than anticipated when they feel the work will be shared with appropriate audiences.
