    Hi everyone,
    I am currently working in a teaching and learning Head Teacher position in Sydney Australia. I am currently collaborating with the Head Teacher of Maths to try and introduce some project based learning into maths. It is a slow process at the moment. We have started with creating driving questions and using SOLE sessions as unit launches to connect the maths skills authentically to the outside world. I now think the vital part is to look at alternate assessments as currently the Faculty is very test focused. Are there any dynamic maths teachers out there with interesting ideas? I am not a maths teacher! Any suggestions appreciated (particularly from an Australian perspective). Thanks!

    As our first PBL year is winding down, we are already in PBL fatigue mode. Trying to get five teachers to plan projects is quite daunting and exhausting. Does anyone have any good tips/advice to help with PBL burn out?

    I post my lessons on YouTube for my flipped classroom. Has anyone found something better or easier for students to view/access?
    • Ms. Arnold - Would anyone mind sharing your link to view the flipped classroom? I am interested in doing it but still hesitant. :)

      • Ms. Berdaxagar - The ones I have need a code to access them. This is an assessment through Google Forms. I think you 'll need permission to see it.https://docs.google.com/forms

      • Mr. Robbins - I use Screen-Cast-O-Matic. You can record, edit, use a number of tools like type over the slide or write on the slide as you talk it through. You can either send kids a link, download the video or embed it.

      • Project Based Learning - Our friends at Getting Smart and Digital Promise have published a new paper, "Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning." The paper addresses two fundamental questions: 1) As a growing body of schools and districts recognize the need for deeper, blended, competency-based learning environments for students, how must the role of leaders evolve to create and sustain them?, and 2) How must leader preparation and ongoing professional development evolve to fully enable teacher and leader success in this new environment?

      • Ms. Riddlemoser - There is a section of House on Mango Street called My Name...I used that for a unit with my own 6th grade ESOL class a few years back and got fantastic results. Vocabulary included sobbed, chandelier...and more. Then each student researched their own name and wrote about themselves, their names and more, using the passages as mentor texts. I can envision a PBL driving question such as What can we learn about ourselves, by using mentor texts? Also my 8th grade ESOL students did a wonderful project last year researching how to be successful in high school. Perhaps your students more...
