Hello everyone, and welcome to the online courses! Here's a bit of background on me: As a PBL pioneer, thought leader, global educator, and founder of PBL Global, I blend inquiry, positive psychology, creativity, wellbeing, and 21st century skills into a strengths focused model of PBL designed to help students become flexible, resilient, purpose-driven thinkers. I am also the author of the Buck Institute for Education’s Handbook on Project Based Learning and the Project Based Learning Design and Coaching Guide: Expert tools for Innovation and Inquiry for K – 12 Educators, as well as Redefining Smart: Awakening Students’ Power to Reimagine Their World, which forecasts the attitudes and beliefs necessary for young people to build a positive vision for the future.
Over 20 years, I've had the privilege of sharing my expertise and passion with over 6000 teachers and 400 schools worldwide. And, I've learned from them! Now I am able to translate this deep expertise into a breakthrough set of mobile learning experiences that will help you to be ‘future-ready'--skilled in PBL, inquiry, 21st Century skills, and design thinking. As the world heads into the next decade, this is our moment to join together to help youth create a positive future for themselves! Thank you, and enjoy the courses.
