Feedback form is now closed.
Deeper learning often happens in innovative pockets in traditional public schools, with students relying on a small number of teachers who are willing to take risks, experiment, and push back against factory-model schooling. But how can teachers, students, and other school community members expand those pockets? How can we scale those opportunities so that all students can access them? In this session, we’ll explore the journey of our northern Vermont school as we attempt to bring project-based learning to all of our students. Along the way, we’ll examine strategies that offer students the time and space to develop transferable skills, lead their own learning, and follow their passions. Through an interactive, game-based workshop experience, participants will leave with a sense of how these strategies might apply at their home schools.

Participants will understand a number of different project-based learning models that can be integrated into a traditional school setting. They will explore how students, teachers, and administrators can adapt and scale those models to reach all students. Participants will leave the session inspired to harness the assets and take on the limitations present in their own contexts.
