Hello, I have just joined edutopia... Looks like a great site. Many resources to reach out to. I work at a school in Aarhus, Denmark where I am first and foremost employed to work for a more internationalized educational experience for the students. The school is a 'Business School,'' but it really is a low level Junior - Senior high school, that preps students to be professionals from the most basic levels (boutique worker) to more ambitious aspirations, but it is business centered anyway. As opposed to a technical college, or some particular skill education. Anyway! The school is highly project based in its education, as it is not so much what they know, but that work and build projects (practical education). I would just like to reach out, and have on notice that I am here, and if you can think of something you would like to do with an international school (and although Danmark not being an english speaking country, majority can communicate - and I wouldn't be here if they weren't looking for more english integration into the school) The school is very flexible, there is no set curriculum, teacher's present topics and projects and the students work, So any idea would probably be easy to incoporate into schematics of the school. It would be more of a question as to which teacher would want to do the idea. But that will be something to work out later. I am more reaching out to you in the community as I unfortunately do not have any great plans myself on what project to do at the moment, but if you have something in mind, or would like to initiate contact to maybe to work something out from scratch, please do contact me. Matthew Joseph Cropper I think it could be really exciting to join classes across the world via skype or something into their education. (project based)

My teaching staff is questioning the importance of quizzes & tests in their lesson development of PBL curriculum. We wonder if keeping it as an option in the lesson template for measuring student growth will ultimately HINDER our ability to truly make the paradigm shift from evaluating finite comprehension, to assessing authentic learning that aligns/integrates/relates to real-world applications/problems/simulations/experiences relevant to student lives...or are quizzes & tests necessary to assess baseline or foundational knowledge as a first tier approach to the assessment of learning within PBL???
