@vamospedaleando🇪🇸 Lamentablemente, me robaron a Maca una hora antes de emprender mi rumbo de Barcelona a Madrid 😭. Me han quitado mi medio de transporte, mi herramienta de trabajo, mi compañera, mi diversion, mi terapia anti estrés, anti tristeza, y anti toda sensación negativa que exista. Me da tanta rabia y tanta tristeza al mismo tiempo que ahora no siento ninguna de las dos, solo siento impotencia. Solo puedo decir que volveré a la ruta, no se cuando, ni como, pero seguiremos pedaleando ✋🏽❤️

🇬🇧 Sadly, my bike got stolen one hour before leaving from Barcelona to Madrid. I am so mad and so sad at the same time that I don’t even know what Im feeling. All I have to say is that I will be back on the road. I don’t know when, or how I will do it, but I will continue cycling around ✋🏽❤️

Problem-based learning (PBL) is integrated at Two Rivers Public Charter School in Washington, DC, at every grade level—pre-K through eighth grade. Students are presented with a real-world problem, undertake a series of investigations, and create a product that they present to an authentic audience as part of the Expeditionary Learning (EL) Education framework.

PBL enables the school to reach all learners. “There are multiple entry points,” explains Julia Tomasko, a fourth-grade teacher. “It’s easy to scaffold [PBL] for students who need more support, and the sky’s the limit for extensions.”

Sparking Curiosity and Solving Real-World Problems | Edutopia

Because of science literacy, our students are active learners who ask questions. They have a sense of curiosity. They’re able to take that curiosity and go do something with it.

Teachers wanted to collaborate to blend expertise in content, so we developed the science literacy to give teachers time to collaborate with each other and with kids, to identify a problem and go out and figure out how to solve it.

Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

SDG11

Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.

However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources. Common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, a shortage of adequate housing and declining infrastructure.

The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. The future we want includes cities of opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.
