Project-based learning (PBL) works, but not all project-based learning is alike. PBL Expert Suzie Boss takes us into assessment, project design, and teacher PD for more effective, meaningful projects that improve learning.
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.
