Product Description
This problem based learning project requires students to review a decree sent by a Roman Emperor in the 3rd century and pick out the various problems that are crippling the empire. Students will focus on one of the 19 problems by researching the problem as it was in Rome and then finding current tools, technology, agencies, laws, professions, equipment, and solutions that are associated with the problem in today's society.

Once students have researched the Roman and current problem, they evaluate their information using Bloom's taxonomy. Next, they use Bloom's to develop questions to ask various experts in the field to gain more knowledge. Students use Skype, cell phones, twitter, and email to contact people from all over the world who are experts. These experts include professors, journalists, government agencies, politicians, engineers, authors, economists, accountants, and environmentalists.

The final phase of the project allows students to create a presentation using a web 2.0 tool to present their plan to fix the Roman problem using today's resources.
