A Problem of Passion within PBL Why aren't all educators embracing authentic learning-by-doing and project/problem based learning? And what, if anything, should we do about it?

Across the US, teachers are creating vibrant Project Based Learning Environments in their own classrooms.

However, not all teachers are embracing this dynamic approach. Why is that? You'd think more teachers would be clamoring to leverage the individual learning strengths of their students within a PBL environment.

Join Ginger as she explores what some of the reasons for this disconnect might be and then work with other education stakeholders to develop real plans to help our colleagues adopt Project- Problem- and Passion-Based Learning.
