A note re: "Project Based Learning (PBL) &/vs. Challenge Based Learning (CBL)"

You already know that "...leadership is critical." And that leadership teams exist at all levels - administration, teachers, students, community. I'm ready to help your leadership teams become more effective in their efforts to grow creative and effective uses of technology that can support increased engagement and accomplishment for all members of your school community.
By applying the PBL model to leadership, those leading the drive for pedagogical improvements, for increased effectiveness in the classroom (and beyond) use of technology, have experience in the very model that is transforming the learning experiences of all students.
And to top it off, it works. PBL is effective for learners; it is also effective for school leadership.
Because you know, what's good for the goose...
For over a quarter century I've been part of leading-edge educational technology innovations, I know what works. And what doesn't. I look forward to translating those experiences into inspirational calls to action that will inform and energize teams of all sizes.
I can help your students and teachers become published authors, and lay the foundations for making publication to authentic audiences a core component of your literacy program.
Working with teachers in advance, we'll make sure content is in process when I arrive. Working through the editing and layout processes, I'll leave behind empowered and inspired authors and the knowledge and skills to carry on publishing books!
See some ideas others (teachers and learners) have used to engage in publication in my blog post titled, "Publishing a book can provide a local purpose to literacy".
Professional Learning has to be
effective and affordable.
