    3. 3. Goals <ul><li>Explore project-based learning </li></ul><ul><li>Use technology that supports your work </li></ul><ul><li>Learn new tools: lightning demos </li></ul><ul><li>Design project framework </li></ul><ul><li>Afterward…. </li></ul><ul><li>Continue </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborate </li></ul><ul><li>All along the way…. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep a captain’s log (blog!) </li></ul>
    4. 4. Agenda 9:00 Today’s tools, tenets of PBL 10:00 New professional learning, visit Qatar, quick tour of PBL 11:00 Lightning demos – digital tools deliver essential learning functions 12:00 Lunch 1:00 Overview of instructional design and assessment Group work – Moving from Think to Thing 2:00 Project management: grouping, schedules, involving others, facilitation Check in, continue group work 3:00 Presentations 3:30 Adjourn
    5. 5. Today’s Tools <ul><li>Reinventing PBL Ning </li></ul><ul><li>Reinventing PBL Wiki </li></ul><ul><li>http: //reinventingpbl . pbwiki .com </li></ul><ul><li>Self-identify - need help? can help? </li></ul>
    6. 6. Projects in Real Life <ul><li>Forget about kids… forget about work… </li></ul><ul><li>Reflect on a recent project of your own </li></ul><ul><li>1. What was your motivation? </li></ul><ul><li>2. What did the project call for? What allowed you to go from think to thing ? </li></ul>
    7. 7. So… Why Projects + Tech? Kids are ready Knowledge economy demands it Global citizenship necessitates it We need to prepare kids for a future we can’t imagine (It’s really fun)
    8. 8. Back at School Compare Two Approaches <ul><li>Traditional research assignment: Study a major figure of the Renaissance period. Create a digital slideshow that informs others about this person’s most significant accomplishments. Demonstrate clear organization and cite all sources. </li></ul>Reinvented project: Mingling at the Renaissance Ball Study several notable individuals in a shared field (art, science, architecture, philosophy, music, literature) during the Renaissance period. Develop a defensible set of criteria for an award in this field, and identify the individual most deserving. Design a badge that signifies the meaning of the award and be ready to present it during a public event.
    9. 9. Effective Projects <ul><li>Probe matters of importance </li></ul><ul><li>Mirror authentic work of professional disciplines </li></ul><ul><li>Are designed for “optimal ambiguity” allowing multiple points of entry, directions for learning, and outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Develop knowledge , skills and dispositions </li></ul><ul><li>Go beyond understanding and studying to some kind of action or resolve </li></ul><ul><li>Are right-sized </li></ul>
