As of last Friday, there were several hundred students on the PIP platform and you all are doing great work! Some of you are just getting started and that’s ok. You still have plenty of time to do an amazing project. There’s loads of useful information in the previous Monday Mailers so feel free to check out April 6th, April 13th and April 20th.
For the nearly 50 students who have completed your Project Proposal, it’s time to move onto Phase Two! In this Create phase you’ll begin the process of doing your project. Your first task will be to Investigate. Here you’ll be gathering websites, videos, social media influencers and people in your world that can help you learn all about your project idea. Good luck as you get rolling and as always, the Skills21 team is here to help. Have a question? Email us at email@example.com or sign-up for one of this week’s Webinars.
Are you ready for the 2020 Online Expo?! Be sure to complete your projects by Wednesday, May 27th!
Each week Liz Radday and Coach Gary Robinson will be online for open office hours. On Wednesdays, teachers are welcome to ask questions, share progress and troubleshoot. On Thursdays, students are invited to speak with Coach Gary about project progress, roadblocks, or questions. Please register!
Each week we’ll feature student activity examples and project ideas. Teachers, if you have a student who is producing exceptional work, mention it to your PIP Coach!
