Transforming Technology Projects from Good to Great

Gary Stager
Projects need to be student directed and student led.
Books to improve project based learning -
Elements of a Project:
  • Purpose
  • Time
  • Personally meaningful
  • Complex, including serendipity
  • Connected
  • Shareable
  • Access and Constructive Materials

Questions Worth Asking:

  • Is the problem solvable?
  • Is the project monumental or substantial? - a pile of worksheets is not a project
  • Who does the project satisfy?
  • What can they do with that? - the project needs to lead to bigger questions or theory
