About Me
I'm the author of Bringing Innovation to School: Empowering Students to Thrive in a Changing World (Solution Tree, 2012) and co-author of Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age (ISTE, 2007). Co-author Jane Krauss and I take a worldwide look at how Web 2.0 tools are reinvigorating the project approach. I contribute frequently to Edutopia and the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
When I'm not writing about education, I develop programs that teach people (from youth to adults) how to be problem-solvers in their own communities. I am a member of the National Faculty of the Buck Institute for Education.

See You at ISTE?

ISTE's just around the corner, and I'm looking forward to facilitating a session on "Ripped from the Headlines Projects." It's Wed., June 29, at 11:45 a.m., and I'm happy to have two teachers and a media guest joining me. Please join us if you're interested in PBL, media literacy, or collaborating with colleagues on project planning. We'll have a wiki where teachers can connect and start planning their own ripped-from-the-headlines projects.

Should be fun!

Thanks Suzie! Our school is trying to move toward a more project based learning environment and I love to share good resources with my teachers whenever I can. I've invited them to join the group as well.

Thanks for your comment! I can't tell you how overwhelmed it is, just beginning PBL. I feel like I am barely treading water... but will definately start contributing to the discussions. Any advice for a PBL novice?

Thank you for the welcome, Suzie. I am new to the site but have already learned a great deal by listening to a few of the archived webinars. I'm looking forward to participating in the discussions in the future. Thanks for sharing your expertise in such a positive and encouraging way. I am leading a PLC that next year will be embarking on an effort to be more project-based in our approach to learning/teaching and look forward to continuing my own learning over the summer in preparation for a terrific year!

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I was just offered a classroom today that will allow me to go back to project based learning.
I can't wait to start school next year with that prospect in mind.

Thanks for the shout-out in Edutopia, Susie! The article was very nicely done - and it fomented some great conversation in the comments.

Hi Suzie,

I'm always interested in learning more about PBL! Looking forward to the conversation.
