An Action Research Report on supporting Project-Based Learning at Centro Interescolar de Linguas (CIL)
Teacher frustration was evident at Isabel's school but it is not leading teachers to change their practices. Her first effort was to experiment with project-based learning on a global network (iEARN). She used project based learning to change her classroom. Then Isabel wanted to see if she could use what she learned to help the teaching staff at her school improve the way they help students learn new languages. She wanted to close the gap between teacher expectations and student achievement.
Flip PD: A Blended Approach to Professional Development
Action Research Portfolio | 2016 | Patrick Staley
During his time as a teacher he was presented with numerous opportunities to articulate the success we achieved through blended learning and appropriate learning technologies. He quickly found that his energy and excitement for teaching extended beyond the classroom to reach adults in a similar manner. He expanded the scope of his career so that he can have an impact districts by helping teachers. Instead of paving the way for others to follow, he learned to provide the right environment and tools for others to feel confident in navigating the path on their own. Throughout this research he discovered that the most essential tool a teacher can have is a positive relationship with those working right next to them.

Nine teacher educators were also a part of the process. An overall coordinator from the college managed the group and coordinated activities using communication tools like Whatsapp and the iEARN collaboration Centre.
