Have you ever considered trying project-based learning in your classroom, but wondered if it was right for you and your students? Join Nicholas Provenzo, The Nerdy Teacher, as he explains how he has changed the way he runs his classroom by moving away from stand-and-lecture to project-based learning, and why he couldn't be happier. More importantly, his students couldn't be happier!

this is great for high school learners, modifying this for early k-4 would be wonderful. Thank you

I enjoyed listening to your explanation of the projects you do at your high school level. I am encouraged to try it myself, but leary as I am at an elementary campus.
I liked the idea of quality over quantity. Let the students come up with the ideas and carry them out.

I found this to be very helpful and inspiring. I want to incorporate more PBL into my classroom and this webinar made me feel more confidant about doing that.

I like the break down between the different types of PBL out there. That is helpful.
I love the statement, you know learning when you see it and a rubric is not needed for those times as it would be a disservice. Thank you
A wonderful perspective on how to have students be accountable for their understanding of the content through various mediums presented through student choice. I liked hearing that rubrics can be a dis-service in assessing a students . understanding of content through project-based learning. Students are able to create organic discussions and final products demonstrating their ownership of the content studied.
