Project-Based Learning and Problem-Based Learning

Project-based learning engages and motivates learners of all ages. It involves learning through experience where learners actively participate in the planning and implementation of the project activities versus the traditional model of teaching following activities in a book or by lectures. My eCoach is a convenient way to implement project-based learning into your life, whether it be in the classroom, office or home, because My eCoach has:
  • many venues for collaboration
  • team pages so project-based learners can organize their work
  • free resources to clone or include in many of these projects
Project-based learning encourages learners how to work effectively as part of a team, collaborate, and communicate, all while integrating technology into the project and meeting their own learning goals. It provides essential skills for their future, paving a new wave for both K-12 students, university students and workers entering the workplace. Here is an example of cross-age cross-curriculum projects.

Problem-based learning involves students working in groups where they take real-world problems and design exciting solutions. We look forward to working with teachers and students involved with both project-based and problem-based learning activities.

"I love to use My eCoach because it allows me to produce a very professional lesson plan. I share my work with other teachers at conferences and in my district. I work hard to develop strong lesson plans tied to Michigan content standards and it is important to me that my finished work looks good and reflects the amount of time and energy I have invested it. My eCoach tools are easy to use and I am proud of the results they produce.

In addition, My eCoach makes it easy to encourage other teachers trying to create lesson plans tied to their content standards. I am able to give them feedback through each step of the process. Even though they may be creating their first lesson plan, they are delighted with the resulting product. It empowers them to try other technology tools that are new to them.

I have used My eCoach for the past ten years. I have created lesson plans for a state level organization, as well as for the State Department of Education. In all that time, I have never seen another tool that can compare to the tools on My eCoach. In ease of use and in the product it produces, My eCoach provides the best tools available."
