Common Core with Technology Skills for Project-Based Learning
The rigor of the Common Core State Standards meets the rigor of Project/Problem Based Learning in this introduction to PBL workshop. Participants will learn how technology-infused PBL units drive learning and raise studentsʼ level of engagement, authenticity, collaboration and higher-order thinking, setting your students up to be great problem-solvers and creators in the process. Discover that through the intentional design of PBL units, they not only teach and assess Common Core State Standards (both ELA and Math), but also naturally lend themselves to the level of learning that the standards promote. Resources for further exploration of PBL will be provided.
