STEAM PBL – Integrating Technology with Inquiry Based Learning
Are you looking for ways to engage your students in meaningful learning experiences that develop their ability to collaborate, communicate and think creatively and critically? The goal of this workshop is to equip you with a framework that allows students to conduct authentic inquiries that incorporate technology and develop 21st century skills. The workshop will outline the essential elements of Problem Based Learning and show how to blend it with STEAM. During this session, you will experience first-hand the engineering design process, as you engage in some hands-on challenges. There will also be a chance to interact with Cubelets. As well, we will touch on how you can use children’s literature to develop an engineer mindset. The ideas and resources presented in this session can be applied to a variety of classroom settings that will not only prepare kids for the 21st century, but directly involve them in their world.
