Hi! I am a special education teacher at the high school level in AK. I have done small projects with my classes and have been wanted to expand to truly create project based learning opportunities for my students. I am excited about participating in the PBL camp as I learn best by doing!

As an Instructional Technology Specialist with 8 elementary schools, I look forward to Camp PBL this summer to find new and better ways to implement PBLs into the daily instruction in my schools.

I was excited to be offered the opportunity to take this learning camp opportunity! I would like to learn more about project based learning and ultimately use it in my middle school methods course.

Good evening to all! I am thrilled to have received this information today. I have been implementing project based learning for quite some time in my classrooms. I have been teaching Social Studies in high school for 11 years and always look for a new twist on engaging students. Ironically my superintendent and I were just discussing a project using this topic cross curriculum. KY is a part of the CCSSO national program to disrupt learning in America in such a way that all students become authentic learners so we can compete globally. I am the teacher representative for the state and certainly believe in programd like this. I can't wait to discuss issues with you all and share ideas.

I am looking forward to this opportunity to finally get some formal training on PBL. I've read a lot on my own and dabbled with it with my students and teachers. I hope to get some concrete tips on organizing and managing the projects so I can share them with the teachers at my school. I have also invited my two media specialist interns to join us.

I currently serve NYC public school educators as a Technology Integration Coordinator and bring with me experience as an Instructional Technology Specialist, curriculum developer, coordinator of out-of-school-time activities, a leader in fostering school-corporate partnerships and a career in the construction industry. I have taught Electronics and Pre-Engineering for several years at a Career and Technical Education High School and still keep in touch with many of my former students via Facebook.

In my role as a Technology Integration Coordinator, I directly support school based educators (classroom teachers and administrators) with using instructional technology to support the collaborative inquiry process. While engaging in collaborative inquiry, teachers systematically work together to identify common challenges, analyze relevant student data, and test new instructional strategies with the goal of developing teacher's professional practice and increasing student achievement.

My supports range from helping classroom teachers and administrators (as well as Network Teams) develop their skills using Microsoft Excel and the NYCDOE accountability tools for data analysis to using interactive whiteboards, web 2.0 tools and instant response systems to engage students through the lens of collaborative inquiry. On occasion I have the opportunity to push-in to a classroom to support a teacher and work with students.This is what I enjoy the most.

As an educator, I believe I can fully realize my personal mission to "make a positive difference through service to others."

I am a Grade 5 teacher in British Columbia, Canada. I have not used PBL in the classroom but am interested in learning more about it. I would like to create a project involving our local watershed with language arts. Very excited about "camp"!
