Designing Effective Projects

Teachers have always used each other for good ideas to improve their instruction. The Designing Effective Projects resource includes a collection of exemplary Unit Plans that integrate technology into classroom projects. Most of the units were developed by teachers participating in the Intel® Teach professional development program. The program emphasizes curriculum development that aligns to standards and promotes higher-order thinking using Curriculum-Framing Questions, authentic project tasks, effective instructional strategies, and performance assessment. Designing Effective Projects provides a foundation for good planning and supports you in adapting these project-based units or developing your own from scratch.
