The Three C's: How Project-Based Learning Improves Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking

Alice Barton/Greg Becker

On August 4th, 2015, in Davis, California, superintendents and high level district teams from around California assembled for a day of exploring edtech solutions, networking with colleagues and learning from other educational leaders. The EdSurge California Edtech Summit featured four panels throughout the day, and we’re now bringing you those talks in podcast form.

The first focus panel of the day (after the keynote panel) discussed strategies for promoting student collaboration, creativity & critical thinking. Panelists shared specific suggestions and examples from schools they have supported and offered practical advice on dealing with assignments that have more than one “right answer.” Along the way the panelists also addressed the tricky challenges of not just student needs, but also the needs of the adult educators who are facilitating their learning.

Panelists for this event included Cary Matsuoka (Superintendent, Milpitas USD), Kyle Brumbaugh (Director of Educational Innovation, Presentation HS), Steve Ritter (Chief Product Architect, Carnegie Learning), and Michael Hageloh Director (Global Education, littleBits). Michelle Spencer of EdSurge facilitated the panel.

Big thanks to all of our panelists for participating. If you enjoyed this EdSurge Extra, check out our other panels from the Davis Summit, up on iTunes and SoundCloud now.
