Here following you can find the reason why I decided to start this discussion.
Since 2007, as a volunteer of the PMI and the PMI Educational Foundation, I have been spending my best efforts in order to promote the “project language” in the primary school (from age 6 to 11).
Thanks to the strategy of “thinking globally and acting locally”, that is typical of these two no-profit organizations, I have been involving hundreds of teachers and students of different countries in the progressive construction and validation of an agile approach to be applied within school projects.
The outcome of this long-term initiative is an intuitive methodology based upon a sequence of project phases (creation, planning, execution and closing) and a set of well- known visual tools (e.g. brainstorming, mind mapping, etc.).
If you are interested in this collection of best practices (now available in thirteen languages), I invite you to download the documents available on the PMIEF website:
On the basis of this information, I need your opinion about the use of this material as a supportive methodology within the “Project-Based Learning” promoted by Edutopia.
Please let me know. Since I consider the project management as the best language for developing the “four-Cs” life skills (Creative thinking, Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration) your opinions will be precious to me.
Thanks in advance. Walter
