Transcript of Designing CBL at MC2

Finding your Digital Zen

A guide to Project Foundry and Google Drive

How do we use our digital tools in a way that isn't making us, and the kids, crazy??
Competency-Based Learning
in MC2

Collaboration Inputs
Look for post-it notes to describe key steps and tips to navigating each stage of the CBL process.
Learning Team
Google Drive
In Project
Set Goals

Construct & Apply
Learning Team tip
In Project Foundry
Weekly/Daily Goals are set with advisors in
~ EODs/ EOWs,
~ Offline in a planner, or
~ On Project Foundry.
Google Drive Tip:

Be sure to provide feedback on student work via Google Drive!
Learning Team

Break the reflection into smaller chunks and have students complete them as EOD exit slips. It keeps parents in the loop too!
In Project Foundry

Some important questions to discuss in exhibitions are

Are students requesting extensions if they have unfinished studio work?

How do the students plan on completing the old projects with new studio work?

Are the current projects helping the student move towards gatewaying?
Project Foundry tip
Use the
EK Portfolio
template to have students defend their completion of competencies. No new artifacts are uploaded to this "project" but the reflection on the overall completion is key.
Quarterly Exhibition
EK Portfolios
Students defend the productivity of the completed quarter to their Learning Team.

Students reference quarterly goals and set new goals for the upcoming quarter.
Students defend content proficiency
across (many) studios, projects,
and/or quarters to the certified staff.

Students reference content goals, prior experience in the subject area, and future plans for completing the EK checklist.
Final project reflections are an important step. They allow students to look back on both their processing and understanding.

These reflections eventually build into the EK portfolios, so they should be comprehensive and meet writing conventions.
Final Project Reflection
Final Project Documentation
Final studio projects should build from scaffolded projects through the quarter and activities that are captured in Google Drive.

Ideally students don't need to "create" documentation or artifacts that weren't already being created in Google Drive.

Feedback should be given along the way.

Learning Opportunities and projects should be inspired by student interest, checklist need, and credit needs.
Learning Team tip

Encourage parents to monitor student task lists in Project Foundry.
Make students create a Studio Folder in Google Drive to keep their work in.

Have them share this folder with you.

Have them name documents accordingly.
Google Drive Tips
Staff Studio Planning
Create a competency matrix

Design project in Project Foundry templates

Create credit checklists to communicate documentation expectations
While managing work, remember that Project Foundry is how work is TURNED IN. Prior to that, work should be assigned and refined in Google Drive.
In Project Foundry
Pro-Tip: pre-assess and save comments/habits along the way.
Also, check interdisciplinary competencies with certified staff.
In Project Foundry:
Staff will provide messages to parents in Project Foundry upon the launch or wrap of a project.
Remind parents to check EODs for daily goals and updates on how students are meeting those goals.

Encourage students to use tasks lists and calendar to manage goals
-Studio tasks are
automatically included
-Students/advisors can
add checklist goals
to this as well
Learning Team tip
Keep up with advisor responses to student EODs- this helps parents get a complete picture of student goal progress.
Students define long-term goals in quarterly exhibitions with their Learning Team.
These include academic, phase, studio, habit,
and other personal goals.
In Project Foundry
During Doc Week have students translate quarterly goals from exhibition into the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) in Project Foundry.
Projects need to be planned completely before they are started.
The planning process includes rounds of feedback with the collaborating
(certified) staff.
Assigning Projects
Assign and Evaluate
: use where artifacts are not required, EODs, Habits (SSR, MMtg, etc)
Assign with Artifacts
: Students need to submit evidence/artifacts. Use for EK projects, CBRPs, Treks, etc.

Batch Assign
: creates student requests seeded by staff. Projects still go through the student planning process,
but with a head start.
Staff and students alike can initiate project plans.
Download Offline Google Drive Tool
Do work, seriously.
Put work in Google Drive ASAP
Take frequent Artifact Breaks
In Project Foundry
Make students link their Google Drive folders to the Project Foundry projects right away. As they upload work to Drive, it will update in PF as well.
Don't leave feedback and assessment to the end of the quarter!
Google Drive Tips

Create Google Drive folders and share with the students and support staff.

Provide assignments and resources in these folders separated by studio projects.

If a Google Drive folder is linked per previous steps, uploading is no big deal.

Projects should be evaluated (closed) the day after Doc Week.

Project Extensions can run through the following quarter, but students need to request these via email.

No artifacts, no credit.
Students can not earn credit for projects without evidence. Staff can, however, evaluate habits based on observation and notes.
Learning Team/Students

Remind students they have to ask for feedback when they complete work outside the given timeline. This can happen in person and via EODs.
Students defend their learning in two main contexts
which are not necessarily reliant on each other.

In Project Foundry
Students requests go through these stages:
(saved for later)
(shared, awaiting approval)
(staff approved)
(artifacts uploaded)
(evaluated by staff)


Make sure your competencies aren't
"one and done" but have scaffolded practice built throughout the studio.

This video shows a habit assessment being created and saved.
In Project Foundry:

- Plan
- Active
- Completed

Use the proper templates. Start simple with: EK Projects/CBRPs, EOD Assessments, Treks, Habits

Use "Create from Copy"
to save time.
Save time by reusing project/assessment templates
Seriously, this is important.

Competencies should match the competency matrix
Use the exact titles of your EK Projects
I like to list the activities/tasks that are listed in section 11 of the EK plan, as well as the task list- what are the exact artifacts kids need to upload "for credit"?
Just copy and paste the reflection prompts from section 13
of the EK plan.
I also include the (habit) assessments that are part of the overall studio, even if they don't require students to upload artifacts.
No artifacts can be uploaded to a project until
it is active (approved by staff).
