The city of Glacier Park will be using a Project Based Learning (PBL) model to guide our learning during term two. We will look to incorporate a four┬áC theme of Collaboration – Community – Creativity – Critical Thinking. We have modelled this approach on “Johnsonville” which is a STEAM type program being run by teacher Anthony Johnston in the US. While most of the content of WHAT we learn will not change, HOW we learn will be flipped on its head. We will be incorporating more student directed learning, independent and collaborative tasks, peer teaching and self guided discovery.
