VOTE Blended Schools Network for SXSWEdu

Got Problems? Good. They raise Student Engagement.
Intrinsically motivated students seek resources, engage and achieve. Let’s get real. For many students, we need to foster engagement, so students develop lifetime skills. Real problems motivate learners. This workshop will guide participants through developing a problem-based learning experience for their learners. You will explore the methodology and examine the types of problem-based learning, write a problem statement, design the problem experience, and build a rubric for your learners.
