“We talk in the PBL world about these employability skills…flexibility to me when creating a project or within the middle of a project, knowing that ‘Hey, things aren’t going so well, we might need to readjust course here.’ And that’s a life lesson that I think it’s important for our students to learn, because they need to realize that the best set plans don’t always go perfectly…” – Coleman Marshall, PBL Facilitator, Lexington, KY.

In this second episode of the PBL Playbook, you’ll hear from a teacher who has taught in a PBL classroom and a professor of education who has done research on the impact of a PBL education on graduates.
Go ahead and listen now to hear about why educators believe in PBL!
