PBLU is a site I just found that is a new online social network of educators who use Project Based Learning in their classrooms. It is officially launching this summer and will provide free online courses (2 weeks long) and project ideas for teachers to use. It will have resources, links, help, and ways to connect with other PBL educators.
Some of the classes they will be offering include: How to Launch the Project • How to Create a Project Calendar • How to Manage the Project • How to Grade the Project • How to Showcase Student Work • How to Get PBL Teacher Certification
Project Based Learning is an excellent way to teach students content, along with other important skills like teamwork, communications, critical thinking, and problem solving.
