Brain-Based Scaffolding for Project Based Learning: Executive Function, Cognitive Load Theory, and Retrieval Practice

Amy Phillips Phillips October 22, 2021

Speaker: Gabrielle Plastrik

Well-scaffolded project based learning can meet the needs of gifted and 2E learners in a way that free form projects cannot. Understanding CLT, retrieval practice, and EF skills and how they affect gifted learners better allows teachers to scaffold student learning. Attendees will compare sample PBL units to assess their scaffolding using metrics provided. Participants will assess their own units or unit ideas as they brainstorm and build scaffolds to better support learning.
