This course reviews the concepts of project-based learning (PBL) and guides participants in learning how they can integrate new and emerging technologies into instruction. Using Web 2.0 tools in project-based learning allows teachers to introduce their classes to problem-solving tasks, in the process enhancing learners' critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills. These are just the 21st century skills adult students need to prepare them for college or careers. The course will be taught in a collaborative virtual environment. It is expected that you are comfortable learning new technologies and that you will learn new instructional approaches and technologies, while developing your own project.

Estimated completion time: 30 hours
