45 min Session
Audience Focus: Elementary
Project Based Learning is an open road to student-centered learning in your elementary classroom. Handing over the steering wheel can sometimes be scary. Join us as we outline the basics of PBL, how to keep your students organized, and feel encouraged that you WILL come out on the other side excited for your next project! Check out proven, classroom tested PBL projects that even the smallest of learners have successfully driven. If kindergarten can do it, anyone can! Attendee note: there may be hands-on portions of this session if time allows. Co-presented with Brittany Banister.
