Weekly Wrap-up (8.1.2014)

1. If you haven’t already, check out Kyaiera’s post about what it will take to innovate at school.

2. Sarah continues to be fantastic and is visiting Drexel’s ExCITe Center next week and will have a summary for us!

3. A few good resources found this week:
A straightforward explanation of project-based learning, including comments from High Tech High staff.
We link to Mind/Shift so often, but here’s another good one on defining/measuring deeper learning. The study mentioned at the end is both fascinating and a great source of documented proof that these strategies do work.

4. Once the team starts work in the fall, the goal of these wrap-ups will be to document our weekly work and share it with our staff and whoever else might be interested. Feel free to give suggestions along the way!
