Professor Rayala's blog is great for Project Based Learning (PBL)

and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: STEM ("and Design/Arts" = STEAM).

He has a very succinct writing style: always including a brief list of PBL process points.


1A. Steps in the Design Process

1. Ideation - brainstorming your ideas and getting them down on paper (or computer document :-)

2. Visualization (Disney staffers call it "Blue Skying" :-)

3. Prototyping = scale model building

4. Implementation = Making It
