Teacher Scot Pankey & his classes completed a music video complete with some sweet dance moves. See the video HERE. They were hoping to get one thousand views but they are currently near In doing so as a class project, they participated in a very large #PBL class activity. One of the great things about #PBL is that it involves so much more than lecture-based learning. #PBL is an theory that education takes place with more understanding and deeper involvement when it is done in an environment using applicable real life projects. Projects such as this one can motivate students and an entire school to want to learn more! It can also bring an entire community closer together and promote school pride.
For this journal blog entry, please write for five minutes minimum on your thoughts about a project like this. Do you think it improves school and community spirit? Do you think it motivates students to care more about school? Do you think it helps the community connect to the school? Should #PBL connect the school with the community? Do you think Norway-Vulcan Area Schools could create a video such as this? How would that help our school?
