Earlier this year, the George Lucas Educational Foundation released four new studies highlighting how project-based learning (PBL) helps accelerate student learning—across age groups, multiple disciplines, and different socio-economic statuses.

With this year’s emphasis on unfinished learning, it may be time to explore implementing a whole-school PBL program.Join us for this webinar to gain valuable insights and journeys from education leaders as they share:

  • Strategies to encourage your team to participate in PBL programs
  • How to implement individual and whole-school PBL programs
  • The gains—academic, social, and emotional—they’ve seen since implementing PBL
