Hacking Project Based Learning: A free webinar!

By Tom 1

School leaders across the country are working to create meaningful, authentic, and real-world learning experiences inside their schools and classrooms. Hacking Project Based Learning: 10 Easy Steps to PBL and Inquiry in the Classroom, by authors Ross Cooper and Erin Murphy, is a dynamic read and addresses many of the myths associated with leveraging a PBL approach to teaching and learning. The practical advice offered by Ross and Erin is highly effective and supports great, personal experiences for kids.

I’m excited to have Ross and Erin join me in just a few weeks for this FREE Future Ready webinar on #HackingPBL. Check it out!

All for the kids we serve,

 Please join Future Ready Schools® (FRS) for a webinar that is part of its Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.

This webinar will focus on demystifying project-based learning. Ross Cooper and Erin Murphy will introduce ten hacks that construct a simple path educators and students can easily follow to achieve success. Speakers will elaborate on the these frequently asked questions:

  • How can a learning space that promotes risk-taking and lends itself to inquiry be developed?
  • What needs to be done to create a vision for a project?
  • How can student learning be assessed and guided?
  • How can students share their work outside their classroom’s walls?

Panelists will share strategies and resources for implementing and leading project-based learning, and they will address questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.
