Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if Distict or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, Districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.
