    18. 18. • PBL = Task Design• Student groups are given a project which simulates an authentic task.• Project leads students to the material the teacher needs them to learn.• Students become more interested in learning the concepts because they “need” them to finish their project. Problem-Based Learning
    19. 19. PBL allows:• more direct student contact.• the teacher to identify and address gaps in students’ knowledge.• students to get many opportunities to talk about math and explain their thinking.

    21. 21. Obstacles we had to overcome… 1. TMS (time, money, space) 2. Transition from traditional teaching pedagogy to PBL 3. Changing the student and adult culture 4. Initial lack of technology 5. Scaffolding soft skills 6. Everything takes longer than you expect 7. Developing a sustainable travel option 8. Fear & tradition
    22. 22. What we learned….. 1. Change, while invigorating, can be hard on students & adults 2. Our kids constantly surprise us 3. A strong mastery of 21st century skills is necessary for the success of our students 4. PBL works! (and is scalable) 5. Student engagement is the foundation for other success measures (achievement; attitude; attendance) 6. Giving students ownership is hard but worth the effort 7. Networks are instrumental for success
