Grouping, inquiry and project work – what size is best?
Check out this discussion happening on
Inquiring Minds: Group Inquiry Better than Solo Investigations?
I’m REALLY liking Suzy Boss and Jane Krauss’s book “Reinventing Project-Based Learning – Your field guide to Real-world projects in the digital age” Wish I’d found it when I was starting TAP but better late than never. Lots of ideas for laying the ground work, and for more efficient use of internet resources like bookmarking useful sites with http://www.del.icio.us.
These authors run the pblbetterwithpractice discussion boards at http://www.classroom20.com/group/pblbetterwithpractice. Well worth joining.
Also joined Edutopia’s Project Based Learning group at http://www.edutopia.org/groups/project-learning. So good to feel connected. Hope you’ll enjoy those groups too, and comment on them and on the question in the title right here!
