Problem-based learning; why?

Problem-based learning (PBL) is a teaching style that pushes students to become the drivers of their learning education. Problem-based learning uses complex, real-world issues as the classroom’s subject matter, encouraging students to develop problem-solving skills and learn concepts instead of just absorbing facts.

I just read this article by Scott McLeod, and it reminded me of ways we work in my school, in certain subjects. It is a good reminder of how students get more invested in their learning when they have “voice and choice”. Enjoy the video.

Thanks for the resource, High Tech High!
