Hi All,
I hope to learn a lot in this PBL camp. Perhaps I will be able to use my new knowledge with my sixth grade social studies class this fall.

My first experience with a computer was an Apple IIE - I swapped out the floppy drives, while the computer was powered on - it poofed ootten. I believed that if it was just cotten, I could figure it out. That was a long time ago!
Today I am the CIO of a district - I administer all adminsitrative and instructional technology. The Superintendent likes cutting edge, so if we have money, we have new stuff.
But I still feel like teachers only embrace what is familiar. Sure, everyone uses a smartboard, because they have made it the new chalk board - it has a few more functions, but it is not really all that "new." Asking teachers to think about creating podcasts or using a content learning management system is like talking to the wind. My first question is why are we hiring these people? And then, when I move beyond the cynicism, I wonder - what can we do to help them? How can we help them see what a difference it really makes, etc. And how do we help students to see beyond their communities - our community is so myopic and parachial. Someone before me mentioned the Gulf oil spill, I would guess that for most of our kids at the high school, that is already a forgotten memory. Sigh.....

Our system is moving quickly into project based learning and I'm very excited to learn more about this process. I work on a team that is centered around projects/rubrics/learning contracts so I'm looking for ways to fine tune what we are doing in 4th grade at my school.

Hello there. I'm an art+design new media teacher for grades 9-12. I'm currently re-thinking the "big ideas" and essential questions of my units; and feel the PBL Camp will be the perfect tool to guide my practice. Thanks for the opportunity!
