Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE | Character and character tools | Scoop.it
BIE’s Essential Project Design Elements contain two new items, both of which are familiar to those who know PBL. One is “authenticity,” which has to do with how real-world the project is. The other is “reflection,” which we have previously coupled with “revision” but now stands on its own; students should reflect on what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they have accomplished in a project.

Interesting free tool that could help with section 508 compliance. Only the paid versions of the program have the "natural" voices.

I think the fact that they went for a professional 'real human' voice on their video says a lot for the product. When the manufacturer won't use it themselves you have to realise that it's not quite there yet.

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology | Character and character tools | Scoop.it

Technology has helped me tremendously in converting my class from ‘Teacher Driven’ to ‘Student Driven’. Technology tools also provide me real time data about students learning – so I can adjust my teaching accordingly. Moreover, because of technology, I can encourage students to pursue their other areas of interest as well. For example, if a child has to attend any national level camp or any sports event, now can access lessons from my E-classroom or connect with class through video conference .
