Flip Unit 4 Activity 2 - Project Based Learning

With all the extra class time you now have, you might consider project based learning.  One of the modules within the Virtuoso Series of TIE's Customized Learning Series is Project Based Learning. If this model is something you are really interested in, please consider taking this module. (If you are doing this entire series, it comes as part.)

Without stepping on that module, here is a brief explanation of Project Based Learning:

As I said, you will learn about this far more in-depth in that module, but I want you to see how nicely it could fit with the flipped model. You can create videos for just-in-time learning to go with projects.

Book Recommendation

This is not required reading for either module, but if you are interested in this model, you might also want to read about 20% time.  The book, "Pure Genius: Building a Culture of Innovation and Taking 20% Time to the Next Level" by Don Wettrick shares what he is doing in an innovation class.

  He explains the challenges of taking on student projects and also the successes some of his students have found.
