    What does it mean to be well-educated, when facts are available at the touch of a button? How can we come to a deeper understanding of our world amid the modern, massive stream of incoming information?

    Co-authors Samantha Matalone Cook, MAT & Blair Lee, MS believe we need a paradigm shift for how we approach teaching and learning. Project-Based Learning: Creating a Modern Education of Curiosity, Innovation, and Impact makes the case for using project-based learning to do just that. By focusing on how subjects and skills are best learned, project-based learning has the potential to revolutionize the role of education and community.

    Project-Based Learning: Creating a Modern Education of Curiosity, Innovation, and Impact covers everything from the inspirational “why” through the practical “how-to,” including eight pre-designed project examples, and student and teacher workbooks to assist in planning your projects from start to finish. Every section of this book has been thoughtfully and thoroughly designed to empower you to begin using project-based learning right away. Regardless of whether you are a teacher in a public or private school, an educator at a museum or organization, a parent who home educates, or an administrator seeking to support your staff in changing the perspective and practice of education, we wrote this book for you.

    Project-Based Learning: Creating a Modern Education of Curiosity, Innovation, and Impact is currently available from SEA Publishing.
