There are powerful ways to prepare students for the rights and duties of citizenship in a connected classroom! Energize Civic Education in your school by leveraging powerful technology, innovative pedagogy (such as Design Thinking and PBL) and emphasizing the “6 Modern Practices that Constitute High Quality Civic Learning” including: effective classroom instruction, the discussion of current and controversial topics, meaningful service learning, and powerful and immersive simulations of government processes. Join us to explore the skills that students need to be educated and prepared to participate responsibly in the modern democratic process, and how can we construct Civic Education to effectively meet this need.

Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students explore real-world problems and challenges over an extended period of time, acquiring deeper knowledge and expertise. Applicable across grade-levels and content areas, PBL has seen a resurgence in interest. Project Based Learning, paired with the ever-growing technology access available in many educational settings, offer educators unique possibilities in unit design. Intentional use of technology within the essential design elements of PBL provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of concepts, refine 21st Century Skills, and publish to a Public Audience.
