I am apart of a cohort in South Dakota that is creating project based learning projects and I am really looking hard for ideas in Language Arts. If anyone has something they would like to add or give me a helpful nudge in the right direction as far as a web site or a search engine is concerned. I'd really, really appreciate that! Thanks very much!

Brett, what grades do you teach?

One more thought for you, Brett. Visit; they are filming a documentary that kids can add to on 10/10/2010. I've signed up for the documentary. I'll have my journalism kids film a day in the life of our town (pop. 1293) from sunup to sunset. We'll then add music and text to our part of the documentary as a project.

I take hundreds of photographs during units to record skills, progress, collaboration etc. The organization, storage, retrieval and use of the images and information has been time consuming and sometimes unmanageable. Re entry I came across an app, three ring, that looks promising. I wonder if others have the same dilemma. How do you record (and organize for easy access) ongoing process and progress in an active project filled environment? I lose track of the sticky notes I use to jot down observations during each class.

Hi Jenifer, welcome to the Edutopia community. I wonder if there isn't a way to use Google forms to keep track of your observations during class. Another option might be Evernote or a program like it.

Do you have access to a tablet that you can carry and enter information into?

Hi Brett,

What are you trying to achieve with the project?
A little more information would allow us to give you some ideas for ways to meet your goals. PBL can be a bit hard to start off, but once it gets going and you and your students get used to it, it's great.
