Trevor shares how educators can design and shape learning experiences to make deeper connections with students, have a more memorable classroom, and transform their students' lives. Using the power of storytelling, brain science, and the principles of Project Based Learning, teachers can achieve real student engagement, and in return, learning that is permanent and unforgettable. When students are empowered to solve authentic problems and teachers become designers of meaningful learning experiences, school becomes a place where everyone can thrive.
Epic Project Based Learning (PBL) at its core is about making learning- content and skills- authentic. PBL adds authenticity and real world challenges to the work students accomplish, and in the process making learning more engaging and memorable. This workshop gives concrete methods, practices, and resources to create a standards-based, skills and content rich classroom in an innovative project based learning model.
