Newton, MA – Sept. 16, 2016 —With “only 8 percent of students completing college and career-ready curriculum,” educators are clamoring to find pedagogical methods that get students active and engaged in mastering 21st century skills. Project-based learning (PBL) is one approach educators can use to encourage students to have a voice and choice in what and how they learn so they can take ownership of their learning – thereby getting ready for life after high school.
On Wednesday, September 21, EdWeek will host a webinar sponsored by itslearning at 2 p.m. EST (1 p.m. CST, 11 a.m. PST) featuring Barbara Bray, a creative learning strategist who will share how PBL helps students develop skills that prepare them to be ready for college, career, and life. Joining Bray will be Josh Giebel, a mathematics facilitator from Bartholomew School District who will share examples how they are employing PBL right now in classrooms.
