Reaching Gold Standard Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a hot trend in K-12 education, which is good news for 21st century students and teachers, but there's danger in popularity. If not done well, PBL could become yesterday's trend. Poorly designed and managed projects could backfire on teachers. School and district leaders might not see that PBL is not a simple pedagogy and sustaining PBL over time requires careful planning, commitment, and cultural change. In our Summit, four highly interactive, hands-on sessions will help teachers design projects that meet our model for "gold standard PBL" and guide leaders in planning its systemic implementation.
