NETS Summary:
The model activity will show how problem based learning and the integration of technology can be used within the classroom. The project aligns to the student NETS in that they will utilize and manage the technology as a tool to complete the project. By showing teachers the activity, we will show them how to develop similar activities for their classrooms.
