I can relate to this video. I feel most of my school career was memorizing facts to take a test then forgetting it so I could memorizing the new facts for the up coming test. We need schools to realize that this strategy isn't working and is not preparing students for the project based world we live in. By using project based learning we have students use critical thinking, collaboration, and communication to solve a problem. Students get involved and more hands on which will last in their memory longer then just trying to memorize facts for a test.
