The focus on 21st Century skills, student creation, collaboration, and choice create an excellent opportunity for incorporating Project Based Learning (PBL) into the classroom. Project/Problem Based Learning is an equitable approach to education therefore elevating and educating students in a learner-driven classroom. We will discuss the misconceptions of Project Based Learning, its effectiveness in regard to student engagement and achievement, development of curriculum, and include a collaborative brainstorm session pertaining to the implementation of technology tools in a project based setting. This session will offer real examples from the classroom and include personal experience from an educator that has implemented Project Based Learning successfully in the classroom.
