Assessing Authentic Learning:
Creating a productive system to assess student learning in a project-based classroom can become overwhelming. This session will offer actionable approaches for feedback, assessment tools, and grading.
Project-Based Learning in a Virtual World:
Let’s explore a concrete and practical framework for tackling PBL from a distance! We'll walk you through a tried and true process that can be adapted for all grade levels. More specifically, we'll take a look at: developing an idea for your project, ensuring sure your project is standards-based, how to assesses (and possibly grade) students based on these standards, how to filter in direct instruction, promoting self-assessment and peer assessment, giving students time and space to reflect and publish, and how to set up a digital hub that lends itself to project based learning from a distance.
STEAM Up Your Project Based Learning in the Elementary Classroom:
STEAM education ignites innovation. Innovation thrives when students observe issues that impact them now, are allowed choices, collaborate with their peers, are allowed the time to implement and rework solutions, and reflect on how to carry out their ideas further in the future. How does all this work in the elementary classroom with limited time? In this session, Shelly Sanchez Terrell will share tips, activities, and tons of free resources to help you STEAM up the learning whether you are a novice or an expert.
Igniting Creativity in the Classroom: Planning, Capturing and Sharing Learning:
Students can create an authentic product that shares what they’ve learned, and open-ended creation tools are powerful ways to capture and share student learning. In this session you’ll learn how designing opportunities for creation in the classroom empowers students to plan with a purpose, capture their new knowledge in any subject and ultimately share their learning with the world. When thinking of the ways This session will introduce Spark Video movie-making tool, Spark Page website builder tool, and Spark Post image creator tool. Attendees will see student work samples and find inspiration for learning activities across the content areas.
Join all of the presenters for a panel discussion about project-based learning. We'll talk about current topics (such as how to do PBL in an emergency remote learning environment), and share ideas and practices for all K-12 levels and subject areas.
How to Turn Any Unit into A Project-Based Learning Experience:
We all have curriculum, standards, and scope and sequence that often limits what we can do in the classroom (whether in-person or a remote learning environment). However, we can do PBL that connects to standards, supports the curriculum, and outpaces our current scope and sequence. In this session, we'll break down the myths of PBL and how to actually do it with your students.
Empowered PBL: Building Self-Direction in Distance Learning PBL
Student engagement can be a real challenge in distance learning classes. But often a lack of engagement is actually a lack of self-direction and ownership. In this session, we explore practical ways to build student ownership into distance learning PBL units.
