They're So Engaged, They Don't Even Realize They're Learning: My Unconventional Trip Through Project Based Learning. (Plus? There Were Zombies Involved)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join in this fast-paced and slightly chaotic trip through a teacher's first year attempt at shaking things up and completely revamping her curriculum with outside-of-the-box, challenging, and motivating project-based learning units in an effort to provide more meaningful learning opportunities for today's students through project-based learning. (The zombie part is totally true.) Session attendees will walk away having heard about multiple project units, how to incorporate student choice and voice, the integration of a multitude of technology tools in projects including video production and augmented reality, BYOD, reflection and revision, the 16 Habits of Mind, social innovation, and more. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own device to try technology tools out as they are directly tied to student work samples.
