Caine’s Arcade Style: Project Based Learning | Today is a Great Day for Learning

Caine’s Arcade Style: Project Based Learning | Today is a Great Day for Learning:

 "We have been doing a lot of learning this year that is different than I would have imagined if you would have asked me 17 months ago. My teaching colleague, Gallit Zvi and I embarked on our own journey of discovery to team teach 2 classes of grade 6/7 students.   When we started we were nervous but excited to start.  We didn’t know where it was going to take us because we were constantly learning new things on twitter that we could adapt, collaborate on, and make our own.  We did know that we both wanted to jump into a project based model for student learning because we knew we could model a collaborative environment necessary to make it successful for our students.  However we didn’t know where and how to start.  We saw ourselves as guides through unique learning experiences that connect learning in the classroom to their lives outside of the classroom.  We were just looking for that sign on which direction we should help guide them towards."
