I have been in business development most of my career. Over the past two years I have been involved in STEAM based curricula development in bringing a project based, hands-on, learning by doing approach for teachers and after school programs to support middle and high schools in FL, IN, MI, and IL
Scott, I mentioned the Deeper Learning MOOC when we talked. Here's the link to their week three reading materials, which focus on project based learning and internships. As you develop your blog to share what you're thinking about MOOCs like this would be places to test your ideas, learn from others and find potential users.
Thanks for calling today. Please browse the http://tutormentor.blogspot.com blog and http://www.tutormentorexchange.net site to see how I integrate visuals like this into articles that focus on building the resources needed to have mentor-rich non-school programs available to youth in more high poverty neighborhoods. read articles like this to see how I feel learning models like Racing could be part of the range of activities at many different locations and how business volunteers could take a role in making this happen. Use the blog on your own profile page of this site to share some of your thinking and to point to your own site and products as you develop them.
Thanks for joining the group. I believe that the ideas shared and demonstrated in my own work with interns could be duplicated by you and others to support more learning opportunities for youth in different cities.
