Keeping Your Project on the Rails
Next up in our PBL~Better with Practice webinar series is a March 4 discussion about project management. Or, as we're calling it, "Keeping Your Project on the Rails." We'll meet in our Learn Central Elluminate Room at 2:00 and 5:00 pst. Please join us!
Experienced teachers will be sharing their advice, tips, and resources for keeping projects on track. For instance, Sue Boudreau will explain how she has adapted project management processes from industry to work with middle-schoolers. Neil Stephenson will dig deeper into questioning, explaining how inquiry evolves during a complex project. Lisa Parisi will offer well-honed advice for managing PBL with elementary students. Nichole Kotasek will get into the nitty-gritty of managing teams and the other issues that arise during the implementation phase of projects. Nichole's school uses Project Foundry, and we'll hear more about how that PBL platform works, too.
Thanks in advance to these practitioners, who are generously sharing their time and strategies. Can't wait to hear where the discussion goes!
Meanwhile, please join the PBL~Better with Practice group in Classroom 2.0, where more than 70 folks are shaping this conversation and expanding their professional network.
