    Our friends at EdSurge provide some great evidence as to why opportunities in computer science need to be more readily available for girls and students of color.

    Last week, President Obama announced his plan to give all students across the country a chance to learn computer science in their school. In addition to the $4 billion in funding for states and $100 million for training teachers, an additional $135 million in computer science funding will be available starting this year from the National Science Foundation and Corporation for National and Community Service. We applaud President Obama's initiative and welcome partnerships with teachers, schools, and school districts that want to leverage the power of Project Based Learning to teach computer science in our schools.

    Hi everyone,
    I am a language teacher who believes in the power and difference that PBL can make in the lives of the students. I created a website where I post the projects and activities I make with the students. I am hoping that you review them and hopefully give me feedback or something. I am very eager to learn more about PBL and write more about it.
    Thank you!
    Teacher Mel

    What are you using for video and audio recording in class? How are you using it? I've been asked to provide PD for my school site and would love to hear how you're using video/audio to assess student work. We have an iPad 1:1 program for students grades 6-8 and projects that are Google-friendly would be a plus.

    I am looking for another 2nd grade classroom to have a Skype literacy circle. I would like another school/class group of 2nd graders to read the same literature as my group and then skype and discuss their understanding and make collaborative connections. Please contact me if interested!
