)-- Jackson County’s Hurst Foundation has committed $25,000 toward putting 10 CrossBraining STEM/PBL Kits into the Jackson Public Schools District.
CrossBraining, founded by Josh Nichols, is a blended STEM/PBL learning and teaching platform that leverages the power of digital storytelling (video). CrossBraining enables teachers and students to go beyond content coverage and develop the deep understandings and success skills needed to thrive in today’s complex world.
Students capture their learning, from start to finish, using a GoPro camera; and condense their footage into a narrated, 45-second video that shows their learning and proficiency. Student learning, communication, and collaboration are compounded through the videos These videos ignite meaningful conversation between the student and parents, teachers, administrators, community, and the world.
The CrossBraining Kit consists of a charging station with 10 GoPro Session cameras and attachments and 10 STEM/PBL Lessons. Each school that gets a Kit will also get free Professional Development to train the teachers in this new platform. Currently, all Professional Development Seminars are held at Spring Arbor University.
