iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 6, 2014 9:24 PM

Self-Assessment is a powerful concept for all classrooms: traditional, blended, and fully online. 


Guide the self-assessment with a rubric and you have fundamentally sound assessment design.

Note the relationship of the 3rd paragraph with 1) Banks' "empowering school culture and social structure" and with the Implicit Association Tests.
