Critical thinking, social intelligence, collaboration and using new technologies are all part of this, which should be included in the curriculum across college.   It is important that colleges work to help students develop all of these skills so that they can be successful in the workplace.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 24, 2014 9:47 PM

So how would one go about reinterpreting project-based learning? This post explores this idea in depth, providing five key areas where change must occur, and detailing one to five additional ideas that will help move project-based learning to a "philosophy of inquiry."
What are the five key areas?

1. Put PBL on a continuum of inquiry.

2. Blend surface knowledge and deeper learning.

3. Start with a sophisticated student-centered culture.

4. Make collaboration as important in school as it is in life.

5. Understand that PBL cannot be done alone.

If you are using project-based learning, or are considering implementing project-based learning next year take the time to check out this post. There are many great ideas that will lead our students to "deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing."

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, March 25, 2014 10:04 AM

This is helpful as a philosophical vision - how to rethink our teaching to effectively integrate the inquiry process. Love it! 

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, March 25, 2014 2:32 PM

This post includes some strategic suggestions on how to make PBL more meaningful for your students.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 25, 2014 8:32 PM

Today teachers are asked to provide opportunities for students to show their creativity, but in many schools are programs are being cut due to budget concerns...and STEM is being renamed STEAM to include the arts.

This infographic explores why it is important to have the arts as a player in public education. Below are a few of the reasons from the infographic. Click through to see all the reasons (eleven if I counted correctly).

* Have you wondered how much federal funding goes to the National Science Foundation as compared to the Arts and Humanities? Do the figures of $5 billion versus $250 million surprise you?
* The No Child Left Behind Act outlines the arts (music, art, foreign language) as core academic subjects, but the Huffington Post notes that fewer elementary schools are offering it...and research shows that students whom study arts are three times more likely to be awarded for good attendance.

You will also find a list of the resources used in the infographic.

This is an infographic that you may want to share with administrators and with parents.
