Presentation 1 of 2
Focus on STEAM PBL
We'll share how we tapped students' creative agency as they solved a school issue through a semester-long computer science project-based learning course for seniors. We encouraged student voice as they prototyped and launched an app. Learn about our journey of curriculum modeling.

Audience will learn how to create a PBL project in form of a Creative Agency that only lasts on semester.
Educational challenge: To develop the course I was given only one instruction, make students create something that solves anything. The challenge was creating a Design Technology Curriculum that only lasts a semester.
Technology intervention: Students used Adobe Photoshop for logo creations and image modification, canva.com for digital media posts, SquareSpace for the web agency and Sketch for designing the mobile app.
Models employed: Students choose and bought an app template as a resource from envato.com to modify for their app later on the semester.
Lesson Plans: The course is based in 3 activities running at the same time in a semester. (A)Computer Science & Technology content. (B) Creation of the Branding of the Creative Agency, Roles & Web. (C) Identify and create a prototype that solves the problem.
Evidence of success: Launch the prototype at the final High School Assembly of the semester. Make the school implement it for the future if possible.
The audience will see a Google Slide presentation with the course outlines, development, goals, and achievements.
Time: 30 minutes peer-to-peer dynamic presentation.
