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.

"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.

Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
