Project-Based Learning Using Technology, is designed to train educators to succeed in using project-based learning (PBL) infused with technology with their students. PBL is a teaching method in which your students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period to investigate and respond to authentic, engaging, and complex questions, problems, or challenges.

This course has the added dimension of technology where your students will learn to conduct online research and create multimedia slideshows. The process includes writing scripts and presenting their findings. The curriculum addresses the vital elements that make PBL a successful method of instruction. Through tutorials, research, and assignments, you will learn how to write scenarios, use rubrics, and create lessons. Using the process of scaffolded instruction, your students will build their skill level to take on the challenges that are part of PBL. Regarding technology, you will learn about setting up a filing system, ways to share files, streamlining computer usage, and programming custom search engines. Access to students is not required. We take great pride in supporting our students and addressing their individual needs.

This course is applicable towards the Classroom Technology Integration Certificate.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
