IMPACT ON STUDENTS
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 can be transformative for students, especially those furthest from educational opportunity. Now more than ever, we need young people who are ready, willing, and able to tackle the challenges of their lives and the world they will inherit - and nothing prepares them better than Project Based Learning.
Engaged hearts and minds
Students actively engage with PBL projects that provide real-world relevance for learning. Students can solve problems that are important to them and their communities.
PBL leads to deeper understanding and greater retention of content knowledge. Students are better able to apply what they know to new situations.
Exposure to adults
Students interact with adults, businesses and organizations, and their community, and can develop career interests.
