Hi everyone! Read about the PBL camp this evening and I am excited to be part of it.
Looking forward to learning new things re: project based learning. I did a project on something similar for my admin. certification so I am interested in seeing how others do it at their schools.

Hi- I'm with Potomac Valley Audubon Society in West Virginia (DC metro area) and teach a 4th grade Watershed Education Initiative in the public schools. We deal with the Chesapeake Bay, but the oil spill in the Gulf is of concern to everyone. I don't know much about Project Based Learning and this looks like a great opportunity. I just hope I have enough time to be a useful member of the group as I also direct our day camp in the summer.

Greetings, all!

I want to make a positive difference in education for our country. I love what I see happening here in Edutopia, and I love everything I've read about PBL and how it has been so successful in healthcare. I think PBL holds a lot of promise for education in the way it engages learners in an immersing, meaningful manner. As an instructional designer / English Language Arts educator, I hope to implement what I learn here into my curricula. In short: I can't wait to see what you guys have in store!

If anyone would really want to know more about me, feel free to visit my website, www.ejleblanc.com.

I'm looking forward to this summer camp. I learned about PBL in my education classes, but I haven't had time to implement PBL in my classroom. I'll be starting my second year of teaching this fall; I've come to teaching a little late in life. :-) I'm hoping to come up with some exciting and engaging lessons for my students. Also, this will help toward my professional development plan, something I need to do to renew my license.

This has been my first year at West Port, but I have been teaching for over 38 years. I have taught 1st grade ESE, 4th grade regular ed., and 6-8 grade science. I have also served as a technology coordinator, technology specialist, staff development coach, and media specialist. I also teach as an online adjunct instructor for Nova Southeastern University.
Empowering teachers to integrate technology into the curriculum via PBL is my passion.

Hi everyone.
I'm a middle school language arts teacher hoping to incorporate more pbl into my curriculum. Ideally, I would like to find a way to link it to student choice and community service.
