Twenty Tips for Managing Project-Based Learning In honor of Edutopia's 20th anniversary, we're producing a series of Top 20 lists, from the practical to the sublime. 20 Tips for Managing Project-Based Learning 1. Use Social Media One of the best ways to document collaboration and engage students with technology is use social media platforms like Edmodo. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. Bonus! A quick note on these tips: There is no real silver bullet to get every single kid under the sun engaged in your classroom, but good teachers use all the strategies they can muster. Digital Play In the University of Bristol’s Education Endowment Foundation‘s recent study on Neuroscience and Education, (Howard-Jones, 2014), there is an interesting section on Learning Games. Classroom practice and neuroscientific research The review ”considers the extent to which insights from the sciences of mind and brain influence, or are close to influencing classroom practice”, summarising “existing evidence about approaches and interventions that are based, or claim to be based, on neuroscience evidence.” The report categorises the approaches into 1) those which are likely to have a positive impact on attainment, 2) those which need further testing to determine the likely impact on attainment, and 3) those which do not seem to have a promising impact on attainment. Further research required What is known about Learning Games Popular games stimulate the brain’s reward systemThe brain’s reward response can positively influence the rate we learn

Can Mobile Phones Help Teachers Manage Classroom Behavior? Digital Tools We can talk all we want about what students should learn in the classroom. But the reality is that most teachers have to balance “academics” with a multitude of other lessons: how to be good students, how to be good citizens, and simply how to behave. The startup isn’t just interested in “gamifying” good behavior. There may be a solution with the use of tech — at least that’s what ClassDojo founder Sam Chaudhary believes. Currently, ClassDojo lets teachers track students’ behaviors with an easy +1 or -1 system — you can reward students for good behavior (participation, helping others, creativity, insight) or you can make note of negative behaviors (disruption, disrespect, tardiness). And while tracking this sort of data is, no doubt, important for adults, its impact on the students themselves is also something that ClassDojo wants to highlight. Each student has an avatar, and ClassDojo plans to implement levels to encourage good behavior. Related

But here's the final challenge in this series: In Step 7, we challenge you to create an organization that is constantly improving. The 4Cs as an Organizational Imperative Working on the 4Cs the last several years has been a wonderful journey. After seeing this graphic, a superintendent walked up to us and said, "I love this model. There are four organizational areas where embedding the 4Cs could be considered: 1) Strategic planning Just this year, I visited my hometown school district. 2) Accountability and data No plan -- strategic or otherwise -- is worth anything if there isn't a culture of accountability surrounding it. 3) Process Improvement Another great way to drive change is to focus on process improvement. 4) Leadership Reflections Conclusion

Exploring Ed Tech @ the Bi-Co Part 4: Planning an IT-Assisted PBL Lesson In this section we continue work on a PBL Lesson Planning Table that we started in Part 2. A Seven-Step Planning Process The first phase of developing an ICT-Assisted PBL lesson plan focuses on defining the topic of the lesson and developing the curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The following is adapted from Moursund, D.G. (2003) Project-Based Learning in an Information Technology Environment. Eugene, OR: ISTE. Project content. Individual and small group activity.
