PBL Works

​The Buck Institute of Education is the leader in training and resources for Project Based Learning. They have just released the gold standard in implementation of Project Based Learning. The goal at Buck is to provide teachers with professional development that will allow them to engage students in authentic real world projects that are motivational. As STEM Instructional Specialists, we use this method to connect students to careers in our region and involve them in authentic projects in which they can rely on leaders in industry, community college and universities in the area, for enhancement of their project.

This presentation demonstrates the importance of learning in context and the effectiveness of connecting students to real world application. The PBL process allows students to engage in a project in which they propose solutions to real problems.
