On September 5th we had a very interesting phone interview with Suzie Boss from Edutopia.org. Edutopia is a website published by The George Lucas Educational Foundation and they are dedicated to transforming the learning process by helping educators implement six core learning strategies.
It turns out our project embodied several of these strategies without our realizing it. Our project used Project-based learning, Integrated Studies and Technology Integration being the most prominent of the six though we did touch on some facets of others.
Suzie’s article covering the project can be found here: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/stem-high-interest-projects-girls-suzie-boss
This was the second interview of the project and it was a lot of fun answering the questions and made for really good practice for the upcoming presentation to all the students at Cumberland Trace Elementary school.
