Accelerating Learning with Meaningful Project-Based Learning
The global pandemic has created significant challenges for educators and students alike. Although educators have spent countless hours on designing and enhancing online and hybrid instruction to reach students who are attending school remotely, the evidence suggests that many students are still falling behind in their learning—and a closer look at the problem suggests that engaging students in remote learning is a key challenge.
Project-based learning (PBL) offers a solution. Research shows that when done well, PBL can be an engaging, motivating, and highly effective learning strategy that helps students understand how lessons relate to real-world scenarios. This white paper explores how PBL can engage students in remote learning and help combat learning loss during the pandemic, while also continuing to serve students well after the threat from COVID-19 is over.
