Why Teach with Project-Based Learning?

Project-based learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges. With this type of active and engaged learning, students are inspired to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying.

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
