Project-Based Learning Resources**

Project Based Learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges, simultaneously developing cross-curriculum skills while working in small collaborative groups. (Edutopia)

It is currently being implemented at Barclay and Margaret Brent Schools.

  • The Buck Institute for Education is dedicated to creating and disseminating products, practices, and knowledge for effective Project-Based Learning.
  • This twitter site contains many ideas, resources, and testimonials related to Project-Based Learning. It is very active and constantly being updated.
  • This site on Project-Based Learning is sponsored by the University of Delaware, which has been a leader in scholarship and professional development on Project-Based Learning.
  • This Lucas Educational Foundation site contains a set of resources on Project-Based Learning and includes some video links to examples of Project-Based Learning in practice.
