This podcast is a recording of the NECC 2007 presentation “Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age” by Jane Krauss and Suzie Boss, along with several other educators who joined the session via Skype. As the authors of an upcoming book on project-based learning with the same title as this presentation, Jane and Suzie shared about their own learning journeys in conducting the research and actually writing this book. They including many different projects teachers and students around the world are involved in to both engage and educate them with skills they’ll need to thrive today and in the future. I apologize that the last few minutes of this session were cut off, I was not able to stay for the last few minutes of this session at NECC due to another commitment. The majority of their message is here, however, and I want to express thanks to all the presenters for both their message as well as giving permission to share this recording as a podcast.

    Do you ever rest?? You must be super organized. Thanks for feeding my brain continually!

  2. James Sigler says:

    I have been interested in PBL for a long time, but haven’t been sure how to use it. I think it is an essential part of a constructivist approach to teaching and learning. Students retain what they learn when they do something, not when the teacher says something. After all, if the students don’t retain what they learn, what’s the point in teaching it in the first place.
