I am a computer science teacher in middle school. I have been reading almost everything I can about project based learning and I am very eager to give it a try. As a "newbie" I am a bit hesitant to start. I have read a lot about how to use technology with PBL, but I am having some trouble coming up with a PBL that teaches and uses computer applications and/or programming. Any suggestions on settling on a "real world" case perspective to launch my endeavors into PBL?

Hi Richard,

I'm looking forward to what the other community members have to say. In my research, I just came across what looks like a promising resource from the Buck Institute on other sites to help put PBL into practice: http://bie.ehclients.com/tools/links/pbl_in_practice.

I know our moderator Tristan may also have some thoughts....

Keep us posted.

Thanks!

Malaika
