Download desired samples and let students review each plans. Provide local DepEd samples of learning plans for further review. Let students formulate concepts on problem- and project-based learning based on the samples reviewed.Comparison of the difference of Problem and Project Based Learning (use http://www.edutopia.org/blog/pbl-vs-pbl-vs-xbl-john-larmer) -Give time for students to read the article.

A peer critiquing session may followSuggested Activity:1. The class is assigned (preferably randomly, by lottery) to Expert Groups. Each of the Expert Groups is then assigned to propose solution to assessed concerns to at least one particular facet of the overall project by using scientific method as the guide. For example, a class studying about environmental issues in their community may be divided into the following Expert Groups:1. Air2. Land3. Water4. Human impact on the environment2. The AIDS investigation ProjectThe real-world connection to the AIDS epidemic will make the project relevant for students. The project may extend over many weeks, and students may be allowed to choose perspectives and make decisions about the design and interface for their presentations. Students maybe instructed to collaborate in small groups to research and implement each perspective in the presentation. Running Assessment will be done and multifaceted. Students' presentations including a variety of media: text, original artwork, scanned images, and animations.Design problem-based and project-based learning planto be rated by the teacher using a rubricDevelop a problem based/project based assessment report on the given task in power point presentationStudents will be instructed to collaborate in small groups to research and implement each perspective in the presentation.

Discuss how social networking sites like facebook, twitter, instagram etc. can be used in teaching.Have a thorough discussion about child online safety and cyberbullying.Case Presentation and Analysis on Cyber bullying highlighting the health effects and psychological effects of cyber bullying *The New Kid in School*Hateful Texting*Psychological Impacts of Cyber bullying*Health Effects of Cyber bullyingAsk the students to read the study about using mobile phones in teaching and learning science(https://www.ubuntunet.net/sites/default/files/mtegaw.pdf)Recording Lectures: The Flipped" ClassroomThese teachers are recording their lectures using video or audio and students are listening to that outside of class as the homework and in class they are completing the practice and the teacher serves as a guide, re-teaching as needed.Students without Cell Phones / Smart PhonesOther issues arise because not every student has a cell phone. The easiest way to work around this is to have students working in groups, collaborating and solving problems together. Now we only need one cell phone to report out the group work. If we get creative, any problem can be solved.Ask the students to explore the following links:http://www.sciencegamecenter.org/https://www.lumosity.com/landing_pages/970?gclid=CjwKEAjw5cG8BRDQj_CNh9nwxTUSJAAHdX3fRRvTBbnAVFklu7SziNeBj53YNWCE71be_-8OhRQXHRoCqBTw_wcBhttp://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/33715/title/Games-for-Science/PhET interactive simulationsAsk the students on how computer games may be used in teaching.Instruct the students to do internet research on the different science-related Educational Apps for iOS and Android and present them to the class.Student samples using open-ended tools to be evaluated by peer and the teacherPresentation of self made/group made video/selected multi media formatCase Analysis on Cyber bullyingA paper regarding the rules and procedures on child online safety and cyberbullying.Poll Health/Environmental Survey Participation Quiz:1.Ask your students a question with the Poll Everywhere app2.Students answer in real time using mobile phones, Twitter, or web browsers3.See your response live on the web or in a PowerPoint presentationComputer and application programsProjectorSpeakersSite Visitation:http://www.growingwireless.com/be-aware/cyberbullying/news-case-studies-on-cyberbullyingHand-outs on anti bullying and cyberbullying acthttp://www.growingwireless.com/be-aware/cyberbullying/news-case-studies-on-cyberbullyinghttp://www.osteopathic.org/osteopathic-health/about-your-health/health-conditionsMobile phonesInternet Connectionhttps://www.polleverywhere.com/Students may use this link: http://gettingsmart.com/2013/01/part-1-44-smart-ways-to-use-smartphones-in-class/iPad, tablet, smart phonesPrepare IMs for Science utilizing selected open-ended tools in delivering the learning planMaking IMs using open-ended tools in Revisiting of PB learning plan: integration of student samples and teacher-made IMsEngage the students in preparing IMs for science using selected open ended tools using the problem based project developed complementing an authored learning plan.For areas without internet:Improvisation of Instructional materialsEvaluation of the IM and the learning plan using a rubricDemonstration of the IM in science instructionComputer and other materials needed to make the IMshttp://www.academia.edu/10680359/PREPARATION_IMPROVISATION_AND_UTILIZATION_OF_INSTRUCTIONAL_MATERIALS_AND_MEDIA_FOR_EFFECTIVE_TEACHINGEnhance the Science learning plan to develop 21st Century Skills through ICT integrationSelection of competencies requiring ICT integration Revisiting of PB learning plan: integration of 21st century skillsBitter, G.
