Book Title: Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age
Publisher: International Society for Technology in Education
Author: Suzie Boss
Reinventing Project-Based Learning offers educators an accessible guide for maximizing the benefits of project-based learning in today's technology-rich learning environment. This reader-friendly book speaks directly to educators, administrators, and professional development specialists who want to transform learning into a more active, student-driven experience, using technology tools for inquiry, collaboration, and connection to the world beyond the classroom. Examples from educators in many different countries showcase this new vision of instructional design.
The book itself follows the arc of a project, providing you with guided opportunities to direct and reflect on your own learning. Starting with an assessment of your readiness to embrace technology-rich, authentic projects, the book then provides strategies to engage with colleagues and build collaboration in project design. The authors then discuss project management, implementation, and troubleshooting. Final chapters focus on assessment, reflection, and sharing. With proven strategies, rich illustrations, classroom examples, and teacher interviews from around the world, Reinventing Project-Based Learning shows how to design authentic projects that make the most of available and emerging tools and technologies.
