Over the past 30 years, I moved from classroom teacher(middle schools)to curriculum writer(Center for Educational Technologies)to now teaching education courses for undergrads. I believe in the power of PBL and want to make sure that my undergraduate students experience it and explore it before they become classroom teachers. I look forward to learning and sharing PBL experiences with other educators in this format. Sign in to vote! Posted 6/25/2010 7:38am Melissa Valencia I teach primary grades and have always considered myself a "project-based" teacher. However, I signed up for this because I'd like to have a more organized approach to this type of learning! Sign in to vote! Posted 6/25/2010 7:45am Jane NeuenschwanderTeaching elementary education courses to undergrads at WJU I am always looking for ways to share experiences and learn from others. This camp will be a wonderful way to discuss PBL with a very wide audience of educators. Over the past 30 years, I moved form classroom teacher(middle school)to curriculum writer(Center for Educational Technologies) to teaching undergraduate education courses. I want my undergraduates to both experience and explore PBL so they will be confident to use it when they teach. Sign in to vote! Posted 6/25/2010 7:53am Paulette DukerichTechnology Specialist, Degrees in Science, Math and Music I am excited about joining the camp. I am called a technology specialist but I have been a science, math and music teacher for years. My school is a Math, Science and Fine Arts school. One of my responsibilities is to help teachers use technology in their classroom teaching. Our student population comes to us needing many things and I believe PBL willl help the teachers and myself tap into their love of learning if we can present it in an exciting authenitic way. I can't wait to get started and connect with all of you. Sign in to vote!

I teach all subjects in a 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade classroom. I recently got a Smartboard for my classroom through a classroom grant and I want to learn to use it for Project Based Learning. I want to know how to put it all together instead of just knowing all the bits and pieces. I am looking forward to participating in the PBL Camp. Sign in to vote!

I wish that the school system would go back to drill and practice (LOL) but even though it's my comfort zone I can't find it in my heart to bore kids to death. However, I really need to see this work to fully grasp the concept. I'm hoping for some fun. Sign in to vote!

Posted 6/25/2010 9:21am Lynda Wasser6th Grade Language Arts Teacher Hey! Just wanted to touch bases with you, because starting this fall, I will be going "paperless" in my classroom, thanks to a new computer website our school is using. I did quite a bit of material on the computer last year, and even had one class of students do almost everything on the computer to work out all the bugs. When they put up the test site, all my students loved experimenting with what I plan for next year. For the past two years, my students have compiled a portfolio of written work for the last nine weeks, and this year I hope to go digital with it. Any tips you can share with me will be greatly appreciated!
