We all have some experience working on projects in the classroom, but what makes classroom projects authentic, project-based learning in 2012?  This webinar reviews key components and the strategies for creating engaging, project-based learning (PBL) using technology.  The PBL approach supports certain key characteristics of adult learning. Recent models of PBL enrich and strengthen communication skills, improve “soft” skills such as critical thinking and teamwork as well as incorporating Web 2.0 technology skills. This session provides practical ideas for using these concepts in your classroom.
