Project Based Learning (PBL)Students work in teams to complete a project every two to four weeks. Students engage in research using the PowerUp laptops. Teachers hold daily workshops during class for students who need help with skills needed for the project. Each student presents his project orally using a variety of media, models, or demonstrations. If not all students in the team participate in the project, a student may be fired by their team, or the entire team fails.
BlendingThe teacher includes the PowerUp HUB in daily activities, warm-up, do-nows, assignments, or quizzes. Motto: "Use the HUB every day but not all the time".
FlippingStudents learn the content before coming to class via online videos. Students work on content assignments during class. The teacher works with small groups of students to enhance skills.“Carpe diem”
