A playshop July 18-22, 2011 in Honolulu, Hawaii for teachers excited about project-based learning (PBL). There are a few spots left where you can join K-12 teachers who will collaborate by topic to create a video and then group by content area or grade level to transform lessons to inquiry-based PBL. A big plus is that the playshop is in Hawaii on the beautiful campus of Mid-Pacific Institute then play even more later on the beach.
