Master Project- Based Learning in 5 Simple Steps
Kyle Wagner, Founder & Lead Consultant, Transform Educational Consultancy, San Diego, CA
Wanna be part of the greatest buzz to hit education in the 21st Century? Want to see students fully engaged and transformed by real learning? Imagine your kids in suits and ties presenting to city council on the need to protect our local waterways. Or designing and creating their own hover boards to glide across a lake.
In this Master Class, as a school leader, you will learn how to create these experiences and connect students to the world outside of school through project- based learning. Learn how to design your first project, connect the project to the local community, and create the kind of experiences that will have students doing real, adult work.
In short, learn how to ‘Master PBL in 5 simple steps.’
