I am so pumped about this cornucopia of plenty filled with educational resources to the brim. We’re talking articles, blog posts, videos, printables, and more. The best part is that the site is so easily and visually organized and searchable. CLEARLY the folks at Bloomboard understand the needs, struggles, and time constraints that we educators face on a daily basis. They are here to maximize your efforts and minimize time. For that, I’m extremely grateful and super excited for what this resource can mean to teachers and classrooms all over.
Find out the basics, and build your interest by checking out the info directly from the Bloomboard informational page, pictured below. The best part is that once you’re intrigued...you can sign up for FREE (YES--absolutely free) and explore at your own pace, not worrying about cost or limits!
// I AM in PBL HEAVEN! //
If you're just starting out or are even slightly interested in (or skeptical about) the wonders of PBL in the classroom at any age, their PBL collection is where you should start! Not only does this collection come jam-packed with everything you need to dive in, but it also has micro-credentials available! Check out what this collection includes, and then EXPLORE for YOURSELF (because there are more provided than what I highlight below!). As you're exploring, don't forget to RECOMMEND to other teachers using the "thumbs-up" button in the upper left hand corner of each resource, and SAVE FOR LATER using the "plus sign" inside the circle, located in the upper right hand corner of each resource. SO QUICK & EASY!
// CURIOUS about PBL? Just Starting? //
PBL gets criticism for being FLUFF. It ABSOLUTELY IS NOT. Make sure you can back up your projects with rigor using this resource!
I LOVE THIS. PBL is a LEARNING EXPERIENCE, both for teachers and students. Watch this PBL FAIL...and learn from other's mistakes!
