In this Project Design PBL session, parents make learning come alive for their students. Discover the critical, must-have elements of a project that leads to authentic learning for your child. Educators and parents are encouraged collaborate together in this workshop.

How do you turn your student’s new interest or hobby into a meaningful learning opportunity? How do you take a subject like math or history, and bring it to life for your child? How do you discover new days to help students see the relevance of learning and its application in the real world?

The research is in, and it shows that there is a “right way” to design projects that will engage the learner in rigorous, authentic learning that sustains inquiry and produces extraordinary retention. This session will introduce parents to the basics of creating learning opportunities for their child at home through projects. Ideally, educators and parents will coordinate their efforts to create projects together.

Parent Partnerships for PBL Success will:
•Introduce parents and educators to the critical research-backed elements of project-based learning
•Guide parents and educators to share common vocabulary and understanding for project design

​Appropriate for parents with children of all ages, including pre-school through 12th grade. Project-based Learning unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and parents.

“We Want a PBL Learning Community!” You asked for it, you got it!

PBLers - both new and experienced, have been asking for a way to stay connected this year as most of us will likely be embarking upon some type of digital PBL journey with our students. We know this is daunting and can feel lonely. PBLMatters is proud to create a FREE PBL PLC (professional learning community) series to help you be successful. Our goal is to connect you with PBL experts in the field and to establish a community of fellow PBL teachers that can routinely meet and share questions, solutions, and strategies. Each PBL PLC session will have a specialized topic and begin with an introduction by a featured guest speaker with time for Q/A and breakout sessions with other teachers. Our plan is to create an ongoing series of PBL PLC convenings. Stay tuned to see an offering about every 2 weeks. Please share these FREE PBL PLC opportunities with your colleagues!
