This week I entered the world of Project Based Learning (PBL) as I started EDTECH 542. PBL is one of those topics that I was aware of but I have never really looked into that closely. Projects are a regular occurance in my classroom but I'm not sure they follow the Gold Standard of PBL as prescribed by organizations like the Buck Institute for Education.
The first activity assigned was to introduce ourselves and create a self-advertisement where we indicated what we wanted to get out of this course and what we attributes do we have that could benefit the group. I have included my self advertisement below.
EDTECH 542 looks like it is going to be a very useful course and by looking at everyone;s introductions, I will be involved with a group of professionals who bring a wide variety of skills and experience to the table. I have a feeling that I am going to learn a great deal from Dr. Dazhi Yang and my fellow classmates. Let the learning begin!
