Time & Location

About The Event

This PL introduces real world applications, principles of problem-based learning, and integration across disciplines, as well as facilitates discussion that helps teachers and instructional leaders understand the fundamentals and instructional strategies required for STEAM-centric learning. The instructors will engage participants in grades 6-7 Earth and Life Science problem-based model lessons that integrate the GSE science and math disciplinary core ideas with technology, the arts, and science, math & engineering practices. Participants will analyze and reflect on the model lessons, and then use their reflections to develop their own STEAM-centric 3-D lessons.

Educators will be able to:

  • Engage in, analyze, and reflect upon grades 6-7 problem-based lessons that integrate STEAM
  • Develop an operational definition of STEAM and PBL and identify representative tasks
  • Identify connections among the science and math practices in the Georgia Standards of Excellence, as well as practices within the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards
  • Locate resources to support planning and implementation of STEAM-centric PBL
  • Plan a standards-based, STEAM PBL lesson
  • Implement, record, and reflect upon a STEAM PBL lesson (micro-credential requirement)
