Available As LABCards Only
LABCARDSIn student-driven classrooms, after-school programs, or home learning environments, enable students to track their progress towards concept mastery with our LABCards point system! Each LABCard was formatted to include 2 project-based lessons, 2 challenges, and 1 final design project. Students earn 5 points for each card they successfully complete. Each level includes four 5-point cards and culminates with a 5-point end design project, for a total of 25 points per level. By completing all four levels, students can earn up to 100 points!With the use of the PCS LABCards, educators can take advantage of a differentiated instruction model where challenging concepts are broken down so that students can quickly master skills and move at their own pace towards a final performance task design project. Each LABCard is assigned a point value for quick and easy assessment of progress through each level and to provide students with immediate recognition of their accomplishments.
The LABCard approach is intended to provide educators with a tool that enables a more student-directed experience. Educators are more empowered to provide more facilitation, coaching and mentoring as students work independently, in their own fashion. Almost all learning environments including after-school programs, clubs, and a wide variety of classroom models, can be supported using the LABCard model.
