Projects for real (4 of 15): PM basics on video

video-game-project

Don’t you think it’s time to return to the Projects for Real series? We’ve talked about principles of ‘adult’ project management that can be taken into the teen classroom; about a very important distinction between real project-based learning and a fun project-looking task; about the language needed to talk about projects in English and how it can be put into a lesson. The next great find I’d like to share with you is this series of short videos introducing the basics of project management. Mike Clayton from Online PM Courses has done a great job covering the most important concepts, and the videos are really high-quality: fun, visual and educational. The vids still need a bit of extra ‘selling’ to the students if you decide to bring them into the classroom, but they are the best I have found. (And my teens’ eyes almost did not glaze over, which is saying something.)

As a bonus, Mike has a short 3-part series about project management lessons from Game of Thrones – not bad at all 🙂
