Ever have a great project idea and were not able to actually start or complete it? We talked about those projects with John Fladd, a colleague of Maria's. What is it that prevents us from seeing a project to fruition?
Except for our colleagues in the the Southern Hemisphere,
many of us are either already enjoying the summer holidays or we are
looking forward to them coming soon. Teachers often use this time to
relax and reflect on their work. We collaborate with other teachers in
summer workshops and catch up on professional reading. Summer
Invitational Institutes are the heart of the work for National Writing
Projects across the country. What a better time to stop and take a look
at a new book by Suzie Boss and Jane Krauss? Their book, Reinventing
Project Based Learning was published earlier this year, and many of us
will be using this book to guide our project planning processes.
To learn more about this "Field Guide to Real-World
Projects in the Digital Age," we asked Suzie Boss and Jane Krauss to
join us on this podcast. The magic of doing this live allowed us to
also include Chris Lehman, Principal of the Science Leadership Academy in
Philadelphia, PA and Gail Desler, Technology Integration Specialist for
Elk Grove Unified School District in Sacramento, CA. and Tech Liaison for the Area 3 Writing Project.
Enjoy the conversation! And
