Because we are a project-based learning (PBL) school, our facilitators are working extra hard to formulate driving questions that are engaging, rigorous and authentic, especially as we are in distance learning. The questions drive the projects and help to make the curriculum applicable to our learners’ world. We want to ensure that all our learners have the tools they need to be successful.
“PBL blends content mastery, meaningful work, and personal connection to create powerful learning experiences, in terms of both academic achievement and students’ personal growth. PBL leads to deeper understanding and greater retention of content knowledge. Students are better able to apply what they know to new situations. A great project can be transformative for students. Seeing a real-world impact gives them a sense of agency and purpose.” -PBL Works
Last week our facilitators held a Project Launch Night. During this very informative evening, they provided all the details regarding their new projects and allowed time for Q&A. If you were unable to attend, we highly recommend that you schedule a time to meet with your child’s facilitator. PBL is quite different from traditional methods, and understanding the why and how will greatly benefit you and your child.
