PBL is based upon the idea that students will be most engaged in the learning process when they have a personal interest in what they are learning. Instead of sitting in a teacher-driven classroom all day long, students learn through the exploration of topics that interest them on their own terms, and largely at their own pace. Each students is a member of a team of 12-20 students, managed by an adult advisor who helps to facilitate the learning process.
Obviously, no teacher intends to breed student drones, so perhaps some of the New County School’s techniques can liven up learning in traditional schools as well. Has anyone out there experienced this firsthand? http://www.thambo.org/blog/?p=287
