Want to grow and develop socially, emotionally & globally aware citizens who solve real-world problems, while also covering your academic standards?
Imagine your students designing their own social enterprises to meet a community need; writing and publishing professional books to be featured in a local library; or working with architects and city planners to create more affordable local housing.
These are all high quality project-based experiences that have been completed by real students in schools across Asia.
In this hands-on workshop, Kyle Wagner – a High Tech High trained PBL expert & experienced Humanities Teacher – will help you create the same kind of experiences for your students by immersing you in a real-world project of your own. Through this real-world project in the Hong Kong community, you will ‘hack’ the secrets of high-quality PBL; from how to plan & design the experience, to how to assess & integrate your academic standards and skills. You will walk away from the workshop ready to begin the design of an experience for students back at your school.
