    Integrating PBL, STEAM, and SEL Into The Daily Curriculum

    How do we integrate PBL, STEAM, and SEL into our curriculum to enhance teaching and learning? The driving force behind this pedagogy and educational approach is not in the design and it's not about which technology we use and it definitely is NOT about "One more thing.” The driving force for success is twofold: first, it is in the empathy or the relationship the students make with the curriculum idea and the real world connection. Second, it is in the collaboration on so many levels that make this integration work. It is a journey.

    In this workshop, we will examine the journey from start to finish and create a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit that YOU can integrate into YOUR curriculum that will motivate ALL learners. The focus of this workshop will be on:

    • Identifying learning standards in a curriculum area to begin this journey.
    • Pinpointing goals for the unit.
    • Awareness of the three P's and how to effectively use them during the process: PERSONALITY, PASSION and PERSEVERANCE.
    • Designing a community of motivated learners.
    • Acquiring the tools and resources needed for your project.
    • Developing a "Setting Them Free" mindset and ways to use this mindset for optimum success.
    • Understanding the flexibility in a fluid PBL unit and how to manage it.
    • How to manage frustration at all levels while moving the project forward. -Learning that teachers and students do not need to be "On the same page.”

      This workshop is for K-12 teachers and administrators. During these workshops, the participants will learn how to design a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit addressing their curriculum and standards, so that they can use their design unit in their classroom. Participants will learn how to successfully navigate roadblocks while on this journey. Please bring a curriculum unit that you are or will be working on this year.

Welcome to LHRIC Instructional Technology

The purpose of the Instructional Technology department at the LHRIC is to foster a community of professionals through the exchange of ideas and leverage creative and innovative use of technology in a global collaborative environment for the advancement of all learners.

We provide professional development for teachers and administrators that is differentiated for each learner, each classroom, each school, and district.  We aim to spark the innovation, creativity, reflection and enthusiasm for teaching and learning that brought them into education in the first place.

Our approach to professional development design ensures that experiences are scalable, replicable, relevant, and the experiences are fun! We offer job embedded cohorts, online courses, workshops, webinars, professional learning communities, peer to peer sessions, on demand coaching, vendor run sessions, and more.

Our ultimate goal is to make sure each adult learner has the skills and requisite knowledge to effectively amp up their practice through the integration of technology resources.

Reach out to learn more about any of our services, programs or just to inquire about trends and experiences.
