Yong Zhao: PBL Develops Students' Creative Confidence | Project Based Learning: a recipe for LifePractice | Scoop.it

"What makes someone successful in the 21st century is definitely not your ability to memorize facts. What will make someone successful is your relentless capacity to innovate, to create. It's your ability to network, to make friends from your own circle and from other countries. It's your ability to see through challenges, to look for opportunities in problems, and to take action to change things instead of waiting for someone else to do something," Zhao said in an interview after his keynote.

Use PBL to Innovate the Music Classroom

Use PBL to Innovate the Music Classroom | Project Based Learning: a recipe for LifePractice | Scoop.it

But I believe we can up the practice of music education a notch with project-based learning (PBL).

In addition, music educators deal with the same concerns as core teachers, including student engagement, assessment and standards. Utilize PBL to address these concerns and embrace new possibilities for the music classroom.
