Project-Based Learning and Problem-Based Learning

Project-based learning engages and motivates learners of all ages. It involves learning through experience where learners actively participate in the planning and implementation of the project activities versus the traditional model of teaching following activities in a book or by lectures. My eCoach is a convenient way to implement project-based learning into your life, whether it be in the classroom, office or home, because My eCoach has:
  • many venues for collaboration
  • team pages so project-based learners can organize their work
  • free resources to clone or include in many of these projects
Project-based learning encourages learners how to work effectively as part of a team, collaborate, and communicate, all while integrating technology into the project and meeting their own learning goals. It provides essential skills for their future, paving a new wave for both K-12 students, university students and workers entering the workplace. Here is an example of cross-age cross-curriculum projects.

Problem-based learning involves students working in groups where they take real-world problems and design exciting solutions. We look forward to working with teachers and students involved with both project-based and problem-based learning activities.

"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.

At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
