Reinventing in Pennsylvania
I had the pleasure of exploring project-based learning with forty educators from Montgomery County PA yesterday-- what a game bunch. We started with an activity I call "Mrs. Grable's Bag". (Mrs. Grable was my third grade teacher.) By the end of the day folks were wiki-ing and ning-ing away, and most importantly, had created the germ of a project. Today I'm off to the School of the Future (Microsoft-Philly Pub Schools collaboration) where I understand our book is guiding curriculum redesign. Next it's off to Science Leadership Academy (Chris Lehmann, principal), and finally a nice get-together with Paula Don's crew at Philly Public Schools. More soon! Here's our new Ning, we'll see how this goes.
