How to modify your PBL plan to fit your new teaching situation

Let's explore how teachers can end the school year strong with project-based learning. Recently, I conducted a check-in with a few members of the Impactful PBL Network, our year-long professional learning program for current and aspiring project-based educators. Many of the teachers' goals involved executing a project-based learning unit this semester, but due to the constant changes with their schools' schedule and logistics, they are experiencing challenges with implementing their plans. Teachers have shared how they are excited about the PBL unit but wonder if it's still feasible to launch it given their current situation. This episode will explore how teachers can modify their project-based learning plan to fit their teaching environment.Tune in to hear:[2:30] How to decide whether to cancel a PBL unit or move forward with facilitation[5:00] Why teachers must reimagine a PBL unit if they decide to move forward with facilitation[7:00] How to modify each phase of the Impactful PBL Roadmap to align with your timeframe and current learning environment[19:27] Ways teachers can share their PBL ideas with Candice for quick feedbackResources mentioned in the episode:Learn how to shift from doing projects to designing impactful project-based learning experiences for students.
