Exciting Learners Through Project-Based Learning

Think back to the most impactful learning experience you had in school. Chances are, it wasn't a worksheet or or a lecture. It was probably a project. The kind of project where you had authentic voice and choice. Our world is changing and our students will need to know how to problem-solve and navigate this new world. While this might sound terrifying, there's also a hidden opportunity. An opportunity to make learning active and meaningful for students. This is at the heart of project-based learning. Exciting Learners Through PBL will support teachers with tools, information and collaborative time to implement PBL in their classroom. Participants will receive a copy of the book "Launch."
