Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of my poster will be to share the different units of study and how we integrated different technologies into each unit. I will show examples from each grade level from K-8 for attendees to be able to see how each grade level builds on their technology knowledge for previous years. There will be student game examples from the older grades to show the coding projects with direct links to the unit of study.
The technology tools used in the different grade levels vary from each unit. I will choose the best projects to showcase and give examples. There will be Chromebooks with games up that students have created to show how creative students can be when they are given the prompts and projects.
I will have a link to my website that will include links to the PBL units of study with included mini lessons for the technology, rubrics, and common core standards that were included in the units. Participants will get a glance into our organization and planning structures so that they can use/modify to meet their needs.
