Preparing Students for a Project-Based World

Preparing Students for a Project-Based World | Tidbits of eLearning | Scoop.it

In the paper, Preparing Students for a Project-Based World, released jointly by Getting Smart and Buck Institute for Education (BIE), we explore equity, economic realities, student engagement and instructional and school design in the preparation of all students for college, career and citizenship.

Featuring blogs, podcasts and videos with students, teachers and leaders in the United States and internationally, as well as insights from people in the business community, this publication makes the case for high-quality project-based learning (PBL) as a way to optimally prepare students for the project-based world they are inheriting by exploring:

The New Economy: Project-based learning prepares students for a competitive, project-based and global economy.
- Equity: Preparing students for a project-based economy a social justice issue.
- Myths and Misconceptions: Myths about the implementation of high-quality project-based learning.
- Recommendations: A project-based economy has implications for students, teachers and leaders. We shine a light on best practices and models to prepare students for college, career and citizenship and illuminate the path forward.

We have also released a quick start guide for students that gives tools and best practices for project-based learning at school and outside of it.
