Project-based learning should not be memorization and regurgitation. It shouldn't be something you can Google with a simple answer. It should require deep digging, application, creativity and more. We also talk about the power of audience and student learning. We discuss the challenge of fair, consistent assessment of projects across schools and districts.

  1. Great topic to discuss – In my opinion, project based learning is more effective than traditional methods if it is deployed with right objectives. I think project based learning should be based on these two key objectives ” Promote Innovation and Out of box thinking”.

  2. What a great topic to bring up. There are many questions out there about PBL. I find it very meaningful.
