Over the weekend I attended a Leader in Me conference. And the whole time I kept thinking how this model fits so perfectly with PBL. Students are given tools to become successful leaders in their schools by learning about the 7 habits. This program was designed to get students to practice 21st century skills, so that one day they can put their knowledge to better use. When I showed up to the conference a 9 year old boy greeted me at the door, shook my hand, and said welcome! How many 9 year old boys do you know that have the skills to do this?
In being an educational technology minor I hope to one day put all these great models to good use, so that my students can be successful. Will you join me in this great opportunity of creating successful students?
