This session will show participants how to utilize technology to incorporate problem based learning.This is important to educators because PBL allows students to learn to work successfully with their peers, find creative ways to solve problems, and to get comfortable using a variety of technology throughout the process. Students are strategically grouped and each group is provided with a basic problem where they choose how best to solve.
