Designing Effective Projects
The Designing Effective Projects resource includes a collection of exemplary Unit Plans that integrate technology into classroom projects. Most of the units were developed by teachers participating in the Intel® Teach professional development program. The program emphasizes curriculum development that aligns to standards and promotes higher-order thinking using Curriculum-Framing Questions, authentic project tasks, effective instructional strategies, and performance assessment. Designing Effective Projects provides a foundation for good planning and supports you in adapting these project-based units or developing your own from scratch.
Assessing Projects helps teachers create assessments that address 21st century skills and provides strategies to make assessment an integral part of their teaching and help students understand content more deeply, think at higher levels, and become self-directed learners.
Although this tool is part of the Intel Thinking with Technology Tools suite of online free tools, it is a very valuable resources to introduce to your teachers when training the Intel Essentials content.
