Project-Based Learning Workshop

A project based learning activity approach to organizing afterschool curriculum is designed for those who want to provide opportunities for children and youth to apply knowledge and skills learned in school to the in-depth, long- term designing and implementation of project ideas.

The workshop covers the strategies for conducting child/youth run projects: how to begin; what to expect; methods used to coach the learners through a project; how to assess child/youth's efforts; determining the ways involvement in projects supports and meets children and youth developmental needs; determining the learning standard links to literacy development, science, math, problem solving, arts, and social studies within the project; and mapping the project components, directions, phases, and outcomes.

In order to learn NIOST's project based learning approach, workshop participants will map and develop potential project based learning experiences; watch video tapes of children involved in a project; analyze the processes and phases of typical projects; brainstorm the potential directions of one project tailored to the needs of your after school program, and generate potential project titles relevant to your site.
