Project Based Learning Resources
Our children need a way to learn that engages the heart, mind, and soul while preparing them for the world they live in. Through Project Based Learning (PBL) your child will actively learn in authentic and tangible ways. Masterful teachers weave core content and standards into projects that students help shape and direct.
Take a look at the resources on these websites:
New Tech Network is a non-profit organization solely devoted to PBL in schools.
Edutopia is an amazing website developed by the George Lucas Educational Foundation. All the greatness in current education reform and innovation is found here. Just search for Project Based Learning and you will find many articles/videos to help.
Buck Institute is another non-profit that supports PBL. Go to their resources tab and you'll find LOTS of information.
Ken Robinson still has the best summary to the history of education and why a methodology like PBL is important. You will see why our paradigm of education must shift!
