Event description


In this Institute, you will learn how to collaboratively plan and implement a MindQuest21 Project Based Learning by,

  • Developing a common vocabulary as you work with your team.

  • Observing and assessing your MindQuest21 PBL trainer as a “facilitator”.

  • Identifying characteristics of 21st Century deeper learners.

  • Engaging in collaborative design thinking with constructive two-way feedback.

  • Aligning your PBL unit with the standards and the five essential 21st century deeper learning skills.

  • Developing your competencies as a collaborative communicator and a creative and critical thinker who is knowledgeable about PBL and ready to lead applications in your classroom, school or district.

  • Knowing how you can create whole school change through the New Maker School model.


After three high energy interactive and engaging workdays, you and your team will leave with

  • A fully designed Project-Based-Learning unit ready for students.

  • A PBL “plan-do-assess" model with a common vocabulary, knowledge, and skills to design additional PBL units.

  • Two documents ready to use PBL as an impetus to integrate 21st century deeper learning competencies across your school's curriculum for every student.
