How Problem/Project Based Learning and STEAM Can Change Everything

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

See how an unorthodox elementary teacher and high school teacher transform their classrooms into problem/project based learning environments that are blended/flipped learning and guided by student inquiry. Multiple models and methodologies (including the elements of STEAM) that allow for observation, critical thinking, intervention, and critical feedback from the teacher and students will be shared. Learn how to incorporate competitions for students to enter, STEAM, social justice, and education technology within a PBL plan that yields high student growth and proficiency levels. Also, learn how to incorporate Competition Based Learning into curricula to increase authenticity, enhance student/parent buy-in, and provide potential visibility to school-based programs. These competitions, usually sponsored by large corporation and nonprofit organizations, challenge elementary, middle and high school student to develop comprehensive innovative solutions to contemporary societal and global STEM issues. CBL can be an integral part of a curriculum in ANY subject area and yield meaningful discussions, scaffolded lessons with formative assessments (checkpoints) and vibrant digital portfolio documentation with reflections.
