The goal of this project was to create a website to help support seven teachers at varying levels of teacher development in one high school's world language department with the process of becoming Project-Based Learning (PBL) and one-to-one computing proficient. Although a useful website or collection of the process of becoming PBL proficient was created it was a starting point but not a solution for every problem that a teacher new to PBL and one-to-one computing may face. It was initially anticipated that some teachers would be afraid to try PBL and one-to-one computing, however, after three one-hour workshop sessions, none of the teachers demonstrated this fear. Instead, all teachers expressed some level of interest in learning how to become PBL and one-to-one computing proficient but were wary about being at differing levels of proficiency with regard to technology and PBL integration.
