Powerful Learning Practice has expanded its staff and brought some fascinating new minds (and fresh ideas) to our team. Weâ€™d like to introduce our team to you, one by one, and so weâ€™ve come up with seven questions for each of them so you can have a little peek into what theyâ€™re thinking and who they are.
I am the new Director of eLearning for PLP. I coordinate all the eCourses being currently offered, and am working with some wonderful instructors to create exciting new offerings for this spring and beyond!
Project-Based Writing (PBW) is about more authentic, purposeful ways to teach, learn and use writing. Does the kind of writing we’re teaching exist out in the real world? In other words, does it have a real-world application? If it can be found outside of school, then we as teachers can mine it for application within school. The learners in this eCourse will end up producing a PBW portfolio, based on units they and other participants create, of authentic writing projects with real world connections. They will walk away with a meaningful digital curriculum binder to use “Monday or Someday.”
