At this critical juncture in our nation’s history, technology makes it easier than ever for students to get involved with issues they care about. This session provides resources and strategies for PBL that leverages digital tools to empower students to construct knowledge and critically engage authentic and relevant social justice issues.

Learning Outcome #1
At the end of this session, participants will be able to design PBL experiences that empower their students to leverage Google Forms, Sheets, and MyMaps, as well as many other free digital resources to address social-justice issues (which can be local, national, or global in scope) of interest and relevance to students.

Learning Outcome #2
At the end of this session, participants will be able to use digital resources such as Google Slides, Docs, and Sites to provide differentiated scaffolds for all students to promote development of critical thinking and creative communication skills.

ISTE Standard #3: Knowledge Constructor. Students will "build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems" and "create collections of artifacts that demonstrate meaningful connections or conclusions".
