Michael Soskil is a STEM education, global collaboration, and technology integration expert who has developed and presented numerous professional learning sessions for K-12 teachers, educational media outlets, and social innovators from around the world. In 2014 the White House and the National Science Foundation presented him the highest honors that the United States bestows upon math and science teachers: The Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching.

Michael and Ginger visit about how a Project/Problem-Based Learning environment helps students create meaning within the educational content and how to get deeply connected with their learning.

They also discuss the nuances between Problem, Project, and Passion-based learning; how are they the same and how are they different? Michael shares real classroom examples to illustrate how they might be different.
