    As technology changes day-to-day life, it is fascinating to imagine what the future will bring. As a learning and development professional, however, it’s very hard to keep up the pace. What technology will be trending and will change the way people live and learn, and what technology will be nothing but hype? Will augmented reality really disrupt learning? And how about virtual reality and wearable tech? And, more importantly, will you ever be able to afford those technologies as learning-supporting tools?

Those tools and apps could change the way L&D supports learning and can have an impact on your employees.

    College and Career Readiness Through Project-Based Learning

    This webinar takes place on September 21, 2016 @ 2 p.m. ET
    Registerfor this webinar now.

    With “only 8 percent of students completing college and career-ready curriculum,” educators are clamoring to find pedagogical methods that get students active and engaged in pursuit of mastering 21st century skills. Barbara Bray, creative learning strategist, will share how project-based learning (PBL) helps students develop skills that prepare them to be ready for college, career, and life. Using PBL, educators can encourage students to have a voice and choice in what and how they learn so they can take ownership of their learning.

    The goal for PBL is for students to not only master the standards-based content, but also to demonstrate mastery of skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and self-efficacy so they become self-directed, independent learners. Joining Bray will be Josh Giebel, a mathematics facilitator from Bartholomew School District who will share examples how they are employing PBL right now in their classrooms.
