On June 15, Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar that is part of its Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.
This webinar focused on demystifying project based learning. Ross Cooper and Erin Murphy will introduce ten hacks that construct a simple path educators and students can easily follow to achieve success. Speakers elaborated on these frequently asked questions:
- How can a learning space that promotes risk-taking and lends itself to inquiry be developed?
- What needs to be done to create a vision for a project?
- How can student learning be assessed and guided?
- How can students share their work outside their classroom’s walls?
Panelists shared strategies and resources for implementing and leading project based learning, and they addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.
