See You at ISTE!

It's that time again. ISTE is one of my favorite events for reconnecting with colleagues and meeting new advocates for real-world, project-based learning.
I'll be taking part in two sessions in San Antonio, both with a PBL focus. Hope you can join me for one or both:

Monday, June 24, 8:30 a.m.--Signposts to Better Projects: Taking Thinking Deeper in Digital Age PBL
I'll be sharing some of the "project signposts" that Jane and I introduce in our newest book, Thinking Through Project-Based Learning. By deliberately looking for opportunities to emphasize inquiry throughout a project, you can take students to deeper thinking.
Mike Gwaltney from Oregon Episcopal School and the Online School for Girls will be joining as co-presenter. He's one of the many deep-thinking teachers we profile in the book. (Room: SACC 217D)

Tuesday, June 25, 5-6:15 p.m.--PBL Birds of a Feather
Join fellow PBL enthusiasts for a participatory, informal session. We'll be crowdsourcing discussion topics and using a speed-dating format to keep things moving. Come with questions, resources to share, or invitations to collaborate on future projects. (Room: SACC 217BC)

Hi Suzie,
I am hoping you will consider reviewing my film "Never Give Up! Ama's Journey to Freedom on the Underground Railroad," which is project-based learning at its core. The film is an reenactment of the Underground Railroad, highlighting resistance to slavery by enslaved people. "Highly recommended" by Video Librarian magazine. "A must-see..." by School Library Journal. Kesa Kivel www.nevergiveupfilm.org
