A visit to project-based Health Leadership HS, a talent pipeline and advocacy organization for a healthier community in Albuquerque, NM.


Northwest of downtown Albuquerque, there is a high school of about 400 students, ranging in ages from 14-20, in the day program that is proving project-based learning really is for all students. ACE Leadership High School is using HQPBL to create meaningful learning experiences for all of their students.


In a number of locations across Chile, several organizations and schools have embraced PBL--and officials in the country's Ministry of Education are gearing up to implement capstone project experiences in the last two years of high school.


Leading the education school at what has been called the most innovative university comes with some pressure to innovate. Carole Basile is in her second year as dean of the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University.

The walls are covered with products and classrooms are buzzing with voices and sounds of collaboration. Students are working on integrated projects tied to passions, interests and real-world causes.

Projects at The Met are connected to individual student goals, and each project includes specific skills students need to address. How does it work, exactly? Students are grouped in small cohorts (or essentially small communities), each with a bonding name like Unity or Liberty. Cohorts collaborate to tackle problems, support each other, and collaborate on projects.


By: Jonathan Rochelle, Katherine Prince and Tom Vander Ark. One thing we know for sure--tomorrow will be more complex than today. We've entered a new era that's driven by artificial intelligence and education must adapt. Our students deserve a new set of learning priorities (not just more added to a crowded set of learning objectives).


Through high quality Project Based Learning, students are developing robust and deep subject knowledge that is both cross-curricular in nature and can easily be applied to real-world problems and challenges.


In some districts, big schools mean some young people, especially those that haven't been well served or supported, to feel disconnected and fall through the cracks. Superintendent Kirt Hartzler explains that Union High School bucks the trend with a commitment to 100% graduation and college and career readiness for all students.
