Project Based Learning

Projects have been on my mind these last few weeks. Mostly inspired by reading about High Tech High in Tony Wagner’s book Global Achievement Gap.

High Tech High is a school in San Diego that provides students with meaningful and purposeful projects that integrate curriculum. They start with the student’s own interests and design the project around them. These projects are multi-disciplinary and end with a presentation of learning by the students for a panel of important audience members.

There are so many gems in what Larry Rosenstock CEO says in this video…watch it more than once.

One thought on “Project Based Learning

  1. Hi Ryan,
    I too was inspired by Tony Wagner’s book and especially the argument for project based learning. I also agree with the inquiry model of education, probably because my expereince with it has been so positive. Way back when I was doing my B. Ed,, we called these approaches experiential education.
