Great to find this....I am going to forge ahead and make this happen in my classroom. I am in a district that has taken away field trips and has little (if any) technology available to the students. The computer lab is never on line and internet is rarely available. For the sake of my students, I will make this happen....glad you are here!

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.
