- This problem-based learning module is designed to engage students in solving a real problem within the community. The question being “How can I help my community get digitally connected?” Students will choose to investigate one of three solutions of making wifi available in our school district to the most populated areas. They will either choose to put Wifi on bus, placing hotspots in the community or using kajeet. The students will be using Google Earth Pro to place circles on a map and calculating the area of these circles. Students will make a model of these circles onto a hard copy using scale factor. At the conclusion, the students will present findings to administration, the board of education, state and local leaders as well as their peers. These findings can be presented through the choice of a display board, flyer, video production or prezi.This blended module includes teacher-led discussion, group-led investigation and discussions along with technology integration.
