Edutopia.org's Technology Integration professional development guide is meant for use either after completion of the Project-Based Learning Guide or with participants who are familiar with project-based learning. The guide is designed for a two- to three-hour class or session. It can be used in conjunction with trainings on technology used in classroom settings.
Students prepare a day ahead for Ben Franklin Broadcast News by downloading images to be used as backdrops for the credits.
