The Library Media Specilaist and Instructional Technology Specialist at Monroe #1 BOCES recently held a STEAM pilot.
The pilot includes an introductory session and facilitated, interactive exploratory sessions. Come and learn how coding and robotics can offer an inquiry-based learning experience for students, which is creative, technology bases, and addresses CCLS.
This summer I have co-facilitated 2 Project Based Learning Workshops (PBL), one focused on middle and high school and the other elementary. Teachers were engaged in the workshops and even asked for more time to spend together so they can roll up their sleeves and start planning.
The biggest misconception of classroom projects is that they are true PBL experiences. Most of the time that is not the case. Generally, classroom projects are activities or a series of activities that do not contain the elements of a PBL.
