Course Name: Intel® Teach Elements: Project-Based Approaches

They also consider the ways that technology supports project-based approaches. Planning and project design modules guide teachers through organizing the curriculum, the classroom, technology, and students for successful 21st century projects. The assessment module demonstrates strategies for assessing students’ 21st century skills throughout an open-ended project. The course offers opportunities to apply the PBL concepts with action planning exercises. CPE credit is 5.
