This past October when I participated in the 21st Century Learning conference in Hongzhou, China, I learned about the Buck Institute for Education. BIE has a fantastic website including a multitude of videos about project based learning, like this one titled, “Teachers Learn Through Modeling.”

A few weeks ago I tweeted EduTopia staff and asked for their best recommended video on project based learning. They recommended, “Project Learning: An Overview.” (9:46) The video description is:

Seymour Papert, a distinguished professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is among a growing group of scholars who support project learning. Read a short introductory article or watch a brief introductory video.

What are your favorite resources (including videos) which support PBL, in addition to BIE and EduTopia?
