Project-based learning done right

Project-based learning “should be used by every school in America,” Larmer said. Though less than five percent of schools currently use it, Larmer said he has seen a “huge increase” in the last three years. But problem-based learning is not for every teacher, Bitton said.

“It takes a teacher who is willing to get down in the trenches with their students,” Larmer said, adding that they also have to be creative and “willing to let go of some control.”
