Overcoming the Six Biggest Objections to Project- Based Learning #PBLchat

Join BAM radio's Rae Pica for a discussion about overcoming the biggest obstacles in project-based learning.  

While interest in project-based learning continues to accelerate, this approach to teaching has its share of skeptics and detractors. In this segment we lay out the benefits of project-based learning and dispelling the concerns, doubts and objections. 

Joining Pica are the following: 
  • John Larmer a Director of Product Development at the Buck Institute for Education. 
  • Nikhil Goyal a 17-year-old author of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student's Assessment of School. 
  • Nicholas "Nick" Provenzano a high school English teacher and writes thoughts on education at 
  • Lisa Nielsen (Me!), author of the book Teaching Generation Text and a long time public school educator. 
In the program I share the work of teacher Pauline Roberts who brings project-based learning to life which you can check out here
