A passionate student is a learning student.
As the world is becoming increasingly connected, the nature, use, ownership, and purpose of knowledge are changing in profound ways. Our goal as educators is to leverage these connections and changes as powerful means to improve teaching and learning in our schools.
We recently tackled the hot topic of Project Based Learning in a free webinar we offered during Connected Educator Month. We’d like to share this recording with you! The free recording for the webinar session is here.
We’ve also put together a full page of curated resources about PBL for you here.
Project Based Learning Immersion
We know as educators, we need to leverage the sweeping change in the way students learn. With this in mind, we’ve designed The Project-Based Learning Immersion, a 3-course series that will move you from introductory to advanced levels of project-based learning for enhanced student engagement and achievement. During the courses you will use a variety of media and new tools that help you learn with others, support PBL management, and make available so students can work in authentic ways and beyond the classroom walls.
Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach will lead these three Project-Based Learning (PBL) eCourses. Sheryl is the co-founder and CEO of Powerful Learning Practice, has a wealth of experience in both project and passion based learning — topics she has explored in her own classrooms and in her 2011 book The Connected Educator. Since the early days of her teaching career, 25 years ago, Sheryl has been a persistent advocate of PBL teaching practices. After implementing and perfecting this powerful instructional strategy with her own students, Sheryl used her expertise to help other schools. She co-founded Dream School, a project based initiative, in conjunction with Valdosta State University. She also worked with the Ministry of Education in Belize to re-envision education through a project based learning lens and lead Dream School Belize.
In these courses Sheryl will also include several PBL expert guests from which to learn. These courses will be both exciting and transformative for you and your students, so don’t delay registering today! You can learn more about Sheryl and her ideas about passion and project-based learning in this Education Week interview.
Powerful Learning Practice is a professional development company for 21st Century educators. And professional development needs to change if we are going to help teachers serve 21st Century learners. Will Richardson and I took that to heart six years ago when we started PLP. We feel like a 3-pronged approach is the best way to support educators in self directed and collaborative learning.
Check out our Project-Based Learning Immersion and let us know what you think. If three courses seems like too long of a committment, you can take them individually, or take another one of our e-courses. We offer graduate credit for each of our courses.
