A Combo Twitter & Hangout Chat on Project Based Learning Coming Soon



Something new is happening this month with #edchatHI, the monthly educational Twitter chat for Hawaii.

Ta-dahhh! -- it's a combination Twitter and Google hangout chat!

The topic? Project-based learning. 


Here are the questions to ponder: 

Q1: What is PBL?
Q2: Why go PBL?
Q3: How do you roll out PBL to your teachers?
Q4: What barriers do you anticipate?
Q5: How will you measure the success of your PBL program?
Q6: What are some PBL resources, PBL practitioners to follow?
Resources to check out before the chat?
How School Leaders Set the Stage for PBL Success by Suzie Boss 
PBL Planning via Edutopia (½ way down page are PBL videos)
Special guests on the hangout will be Buffy Cushman-Patz (@buffycushmanand Nate Malinoski (@NateMalinoski), two educators who have a lot of experience with project-based learning.

You can view the hangout, and ask questions live, here. 



Or you can watch the hangout and tweet away using the #edchatHI hashtag on Twitter.
Or you can do both. 

When will all of this happen?  

Mark your calendars: September 14, 2015 at 6 - 7 pm Hawaii Standard Time.

Please join us! 

Special mahalo to +Michael Fricano II+JoAnn Jacobs, and +Michelle Carlson Colte for setting up this special event.

P. S. Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted here in over a month! Yes, getting ready for the start of school did take up a lot of my time. Happy to report that we're up and running and settling in nicely. Hope to be blogging more regularly now. I have lots to share, as usual.
