Librarians in the Driver's Seat: Leading Your School through PBL
Download to my calendar
Project based learning is gaining momentum in schools across the country, and librarians need to take the lead in training, implementing, and recruiting teachers, curriculum directors, and administrators in adopting project based learning throughout K-12 and higher education. A commonly used practice for several years in STEM and vocational classrooms, project (or problem) based learning has been shown to provide significant gains in achievement in other areas, particularly in high school subjects like social studies (Summers & Dickinson, 2012). In this session, participants will learn more about the Project Based Learning approach, including effective strategies for librarians to influence and guide curriculum to engage not only students in deeper learning, but deeper relationships with teachers as well.
