Following a year of hybrid and virtual instruction, many educators are asking “how can we engage students in their learning?” Project Based Learning is an instructional model that offers meaningful learning experiences that cultivate agency and inquiry without compromising curriculum. This approach offers tremendous flexibility for students and educators to co-create lessons that foster skill development across disciplines and nurture 21st century skills such as critical thinking and collaboration that are transferable to any learning and working environment. PBL can build upon all that teachers have learned about educational technology by leveraging digital tools to move beyond the traditional classroom and take learning into the real world. This Roundtable series will examine how to shift learning toward a more student-centered, authentic, engaging experience for students.

 

Tech Valley High School was founded on the premise of sharing its PBL-centered instructional program with school districts throughout the region. The Project Based Learning for Engaging Instruction Roundtable offers a space for Tech Valley’s experts to share their experiences with colleagues throughout the region in a forum that will empower all participants to develop instructional practices that engage all of your students. 

Who is this Roundtable for?

  • Teachers looking for practical, hands-on support in designing and implementing projects

  • Teachers who are looking for thought partners around projects in the classroom

  • Teachers who would like to improve the projects they use in their classrooms

  • Teachers who have not used projects in their classroom and would like to learn more about how they can use projects and aspects of PBL to provide more engaging and authentic instruction for students
