This workshop was perhaps most helpful in its overview of project-based learning and beginning to understand what that means and is.
The first day of the workshop was extremely frustrating because the Apple Workshop presenter did not seem to have any specific goals/direction
for the day other than showing us cool teacher links on the Web we could use. Without a project to focus on, this was highly frustrating because
it felt out of context. The second day when he finally gave examples of what project-based learning actually is was really helpful, but also frustrating because
I would have loved some time to actually develop a project during the workshop time. Additionally, it does seem like the kind of a project that
would be helpful to have student imput to help create the project. The most exciting thing about the workshop was the idea of project-based learning.
I am excited about this idea and the notion that the boundaries are much broader now in terms of what is possible for projects.
