With push for computer science concepts to find their way into every classroom and grade level, you might be looking for activities that address CSDF standards in your class. Project-based learning, especially projects that allow students to incorporate STEM technologies, can be a great starting point. Join us for this session where we will take a look at the K-12 standards and discuss hands-on activities that you can introduce to students to get them thinking critically and developing as 21st century learners.
Project-based learning is the perfect way to engage your K-5 students in 21st century skills. How can we incorporate these skills into our ELA class? In this session, we’ll discuss how to implement PBL activities into your instruction to promote critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. We will also dive into how to use various tools to promote the key elements of PBL, such as research, gathering and analyzing feedback, and presenting knowledge in your classroom. Join us to review some PBL best practices to engage your elementary ELA students!
Project-based learning (PBL) provides opportunities for students to gain knowledge and skills by exploring authentic, complex questions, problems, or challenges. There are many moving parts inherent to PBL that can become quite overwhelming for teachers and students. In this course, you will learn how Seesaw can support PBL in a variety of ways. Seesaw is a versatile digital portfolio, multimedia learning, and communication tool. Some options we will explore are how students and teachers can organize their work with folders, provide effective feedback to one another, monitor workflow, and use many multimodal tools to demonstrate their progress over time. Join us to learn how Seesaw can make your PBL manageable and successful.
Learn how to use the iBlocks framework to guide your students through the Engineering Design Process, first building context and understanding around Rube Goldberg, simple machines, and then how they come together in a Rube Goldberg Machine. IBlocks content leads students through the planning, design, and construction of their machine and finally, the testing and evaluation, where students learn the importance of refining, remixing, and redesigning.
Join the world’s foremost expert on all things Rube Goldberg, Jennifer George, as she discusses why the overly complicated machines that bear Rube’s name remain a key component of enrichment and STEAM programs in schools across the country. Then, learn from our curriculum team on how to structure a Rube Goldberg-centered enrichment program, and how we add technology, advanced literacy, and career exploration to a K12 Rube Goldberg program.
Project-based learning (PBL) is a great way to engage students, and Canvas can help you create, manage, and deliver outstanding PBL activities. In this course, we’ll show you how to utilize the Canvas platform for each element of a project-based learning activity.
Every good project-based learning activity starts with a driving question, so creating meaningful ones is essential to building an authentic PBL experiences for your students. In this course, we will discuss some ways of creating driving questions that are focused, open-ended and engaging.
Project-based learning is a great way to get your students engaged and encourage 21st century skills like critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration. In this course, we will give you resources to get started with PBL and explore some project ideas for your classroom.
